“David W. Jones has established himself as one of Canada 's foremost landscape painters. The beauty, splendor and unique vastness of our landscape, coast to coast, are captured in his canvases.”(National Arts Centre, November 1999)
For close to 30 years, David Jones has exhibited extensively across Canada , Japan and the United States . In 1981, Jones received a special commission to be Canada 's War Artist depicting activities on board a destroyer on the Pacific Ocean . In 1985, a major art exhibition commemorating the 75th Anniversary of the Royal Canadian Navy toured North America and Jones' works were displayed alongside works by Arthur Lismer, Alex Colville and William Ogilvy. In Canada, he has shown at the Winnipeg Art Gallery, Calgary 's Glenbow Museum, the National Museum of Nature and the British Columbia Provincial Museum .
In March 2003, Jones was invited to paint on stage with the National Arts Centre Orchestra for two sold out concerts. He created two paintings while the Orchestra performed the music of George Gershwin and Alexina Louie.
In addition to being represented in numerous private galleries across Canada, Jones' works are part of such diverse collections as the National War Art collection, the City of Ottawa collection, former Canadian Prime Minister, Brian Mulroney, the Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans collection and the collection of jazz great Benny Goodman.
In 1981, when Ottawa Citizen art critic Nancy Baele first reviewed Jones' work she said: “Jones is an artist to watch…buyers will congratulate themselves on spotting a new talent and owning one of his early works”. Her words were prophetic—Jones has a loyal following wherever his paintings are exhibited.
