Twenty-nine-year-old visual artist Jeromyah Jones has created an allegorical 2'x3' oil-on-canvas painting of New York-based opera singer June E Townes. In the painting, summer begins with the sound of June. The painting, entitled The Month of June, was first exhibited on 19 June 2019 at the single-evening Juneteenth Art Reception hosted by the Metropolitan Business League at the Black History Museum and Cultural Center of Virginia.
June E Townes is the founder of the music genre Gospera, intertwining opera and gospel music. Gospera is also the name of the group which performs with her.
