Clemens' exhibit will be on display in the Teaching Gallery from September 9 through October 28. His exhibit includes portrait paintings and still-life paintings of toys. In his search to find unusual toys to paint, he also has begun to carve, sand and paint his own toys, which look similar to manufactured objects.

Clemens is the associate preparatory at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City where he oversees the installation of select museum exhibitions. His work has been displayed in New York City's Old New York Gallery and San Francisco's 1081 Gallery.

The Teaching Gallery hours are 7 a.m. - 10 p.m., Monday - Thursday; 7 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Friday; and 9 a.m. - 4 p.m., Saturday. Admission is free.
