Jones – Carter Gallery | FORMICARIUM Jamey Grimes

Jones – Carter Gallery presents:

An Installation exhibit by artist Jamey Grimes

FORMICARIUM

Opening January 31 through March 14, 2020

Exhibit hours are Tuesday – Saturday 11am – 5pm

105 Henry Street, Lake City, SC 29560

“In Formicarium, plastic surfaces accumulate to form tunnels of light and shadow. Colors change over time, dynamically shifting the viewer’s interpretation of depth and form. A formicarium is a technical term for an ant farm. In this installation, the Jones-Carter gallery is transformed into a box full of tunnels, to be explored by humans, rather than ants. The carved and melted texture of the plastic walls might imply a network of tunnels at a smaller scale.”  Artist Jamey Grimes from Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

Artist Talk – Dustin Farnsworth: The Devil’s Work

The Jones-Carter Gallery invites you to attend an artist talk to learn more about artist Dustin Farnsworth on Saturday, March 3rd, 1:00pm.

The Devil’s Work presents sculptures by Dustin Farnsworth, sampled from the last seven years. The artist creates visceral and cerebral portraiture of today’s youth with critical portrayal of their worldly inheritance, engaging in visual rhetoric representing a generation in need of protection, empowerment and change. Often larger than life, Farnsworth’s socially conscious constructions are engrossing, captivating and surreal. Connected by a strong thread of craftsmanship, Farnsworth shows us that the devil is in the details.

Farnsworth was the 701 Center for Contemporary Art, Columbia, S.C., Artist in Residence from October through December 2017. This exhibition will include work created during his residency.
The Devil’s Work will be on display at the Jones-Carter Gallery though April 7, 2018

Small Labors by Meredith Dallas

Jones-Carter Gallery and ArtFields® proudly present the artwork of installation artist, Meredith Dallas, recipient of the Bloom Award.

The Bloom Award is a solo exhibition awarded to an emerging artist competing in the ArtFields Competition. Meredith Dallas accepted the exhibition award during the finale ceremonies at ArtFields 2016.

This solo exhibition will feature 3-Dimensional large-scale sculptures and 2-Dimensional aged latex drawings. The large metal sculptures employ the welding process to secure the shape and strength of each work then intricately cut mirrors are placed as a covering on the metal body. This technique offers up a dialogue of men’s work and the tedious feminine labor of placing the glass covering.

“My newest line of investigation in my sculptural work deals with masculine and feminine associations. The steel forms confront the body of the viewer while mimicking the scale of the viewer’s body. The pieces recall the forms and concerns of Minimalism, dealing specifically with phenomenological experience.” Explains Meredith Dallas

Meredith Dallas is an emerging sculptor and printmaker from Rock Hill, SC. She received her B.F.A. in sculpture and printmaking from Winthrop University in May 2015. Meredith is the recipient of numerous regional awards and currently is developing a commissioned piece for Winthrop University’s Hardin Garden and assisting teaching the University’s Sculpture I class.

Come meet the artist at the Artist’s Reception on FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18 AT 6 P.M. work will be on display at the Jones-Carter Gallery through January 14, 2017

Meredith also received a grant to fund her project; Support for this project is provided by the Arts Council of York County Small Grants Program, the John and Susan Bennett Memorial Arts Fund of the Coastal Community Foundation of SC, and the SC Arts Commission, which received funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.

ArtFields® is a charitable program and event sponsored by Lake City Creative Alliance, which is a federally recognized Section 501(c)(3) organization located in Lake City, South Carolina.
