Thank you so much to everyone who came out to my show in Nashville over the weekend.  I’ve posted several photos from the show below.  The Tennesseean said, “Jamey Grimes and Charles Clary create works that are at once organic and synthetic. While Clary’s vibrant paper sculptures evoke biological forms, playfully ‘infecting’ the spaces they inhabit, Grimes’ whimsical webs of corrugated plastic provide for the completion of natural structures.”

The exhibit will be on display from December 7 through January 25 at the Rymer Gallery, 233 Fifth Avenue North in Nashville, TN.
