The Art of Jim Shores Closing Reception
Categories: Art Openings
Join us for a special reception celebrating the art of Jim Shores, with snacks, beverages, and an art making activity. We will be open late so guests can take a tour of Paradise Garden after dark, and view the Christmas lights, which lights up all of Howard Finster's beautiful creations. Free with admission!
Jim Shores is known for his found-object sculpture, assemblage and environmental art from found/discarded objects. He has work in the permanent Folk Art collections of the High Museum of Art (Atlanta. Ga) as well as the Polk Museum (Lakeland, Fl) and the House of Blues (Orlando, Fl), and in many private collections around the country. Works will be available to purchase, with 20% of proceeds benefiting Paradise Garden. Admission into the Gallery is free. (Admission into the garden can be purchased in the Gift Shop.)
