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.

“I have always dreamed of having a show where I can put my latest art into the context of the process and personal journey out of which it was born. This dream is coming true!

Please join us at the TRAX Visual Art Center for the first ever Survey of Noah James Saunder’s 30 year conversation with wire. This show will feature my very first wire sculptures and all my favorite wire creations whose making paved the way for my most recent, and perhaps most meaning filled sculptures.The latter having been inspired by my most recent art study trip to Italy, which opened my creative soul and lead me to surrender the title of student of my craft, and to begin to create works of significant, lasting meaning.

This survey will also include my jewelry and ceramics juxtaposed with the amazing fabric art of Andrea Wellnitz.”  artist Noah James Saunders.

ArtFields® 2019

ArtFields started in 2013 with a simple goal: honor the artists of the Southeast with a week’s worth of celebration and competition in the heart of a traditional Southern small town. The competition and exhibition offers more than $140,000 in cash prizes. The winners of two People’s Choice Awards are determined by the votes of people visiting ArtFields; a panel of art professionals selects all the other awards, including the $50,000 Grand Prize and $25,000 Second Place award.

Up to 400 works of art will be on display in locally-owned venues, from renovated 1920s warehouses and professional art spaces such as Jones-Carter Gallery and TRAX Visual Art Center to the library, the history museum, the Ronald E. McNair Life History Center, restaurants, boutiques and other shops. During ArtFields, what was once one of South Carolina’s most prosperous agricultural communities becomes a living art gallery as we recognize, celebrate and share the artistic talent of the Southeast.
