The Museum is excited to announce the addition of two new exhibitions to the Touring Exhibition Service. Through the Looking Glass: The Portrait of the Artist will explore the tradition of self-portraits and portraits of artists. Cyrus Baldridge: An American Artist in China includes a selection of works completed during the artist’s journeys in Asia where his style was dramatically affected by the sparse lines of traditional Asian art.

From the earliest expeditions to the American West, Wyoming has attracted artists who have been inspired by the state's unique geology, vast landscape and people. Today, a number of artists live and work in the state creating work that ranges from realistic to abstract. The UW Art Museum is pleased to feature a selection of eighteen contemporary Wyoming artists in a new exhibition that will tour statewide through the museum's Touring Exhibition Service. With a variety of subjects that embrace the landscape, daily life, and personal expression in a variety of media that includes watercolor, photography, collage, printmaking, painting, and drawing, Contemporary Art in Wyoming explores the creative spirit of artists in Wyoming today.
The artists included are: Morgan Tyree, Powell ; Pravina Gondalia, Cheyenne; Ryan Muldowny, Sheridan ; Meghan Rowswell, Cheyenne; Gabrielle Reeves, Laramie ; Sue Sommers, Pinedale; Katie Christensen, Laramie; Jon Madsen, Laramie ; Ginnie Madsen, Laramie; Karyne Dunbar, Shell ; Meggan Stordahl, Jackson; Mike Conaway, Evanston; Craig Satterlee, Powell ; Rene Tafoya, Cody; Lynn Newman, Cheyenne ; Thomas Bradshaw, Cody; Camellia El-Antably, Cheyenne; Ken Driese, Laramie

Since 2000, Martin Stupich has photographed extensively in Wyoming's Red Desert with an urgency to record it in the midst of its changing. Through his images, we see an expansive landscape, diverse geology, evidence of the earliest human occupation, boom and bust towns, and present day industry. Collectively, an image of this place emerges, revealing the human history of our connection to the landscape. It is a complicated and fragmented portrait, one that tugs at the perception that this is a barren place of little value and one that encourages us to look again at the Red Desert in all its wonder and wildness.
Funded in part by Richard and Judith Agee, the Guthrie Family Foundation, the National Advisory Board of the UW Art Museum, the Argosy Family Foundation and the Haub School and Ruckelshaus Institute of Environment and Natural Resources, UW Program on Ecology, the Wyoming Council for the Humanities, and the Wyoming Arts Council through the Wyoming State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts which believes a great nation deserves great art.
