"Creatures" exhibit at Wyoming State Library Sept. 26-30

Artwork by Paul Clymer, a Wyoming artist from Park County, will be displayed at the State Library Sept. 26 -30.

According to Paul, “My ‘creatures’ are built of tree trimmings, pine burls, scrap wood, dumpster-sourced clothing, antlers, skulls, plaster of Paris, epoxy and paint. I like to think of it as  art with a sense of humor and a nod to Native American Kachinas and other indigenous pre-Christian idols and sentinel figures. They take four to six months to complete after the skulls are modified and painted (three-six weeks) but often more than one are going at once.”

There will be an opening reception for this exhibit on Tuesday, Sept. 27, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Wyoming State Library, 2800 Central Avenue, Cheyenne, WY. For more information, call Tina Lyles at 307.777.6338.
