Description: Public Exhibition Dates: January 18-March 2, 2013 Living on a barrier island off the coast of Georgia, Jim Jones explores the spiritual extremes of both man and beast. In his sculpture, Jones meets the challenges of nature's secrets head-on. As both a dedicated conservator and lifelong hunter-gatherer, his sculptural focus upon the darker side of nature. An uncomfortable relationship between man and beast and suggestions of man's beastly behavior, suffuse these works with an intrinsic strength of expression. Artist, Jim Jones will be giving a brief gallery talk at the Member's preview and will be giving a workshop on Saturday January 19 on Recycled Mediums as Sculptural Resources.
