UW Art Museum to Open Two New Exhibitions
May 19, 2009 — The University of Wyoming Art Museum will open two new exhibitions, "Lia Cook: The Embedded Portrait" and "Ralston Crawford: Lithographs and Photographs," to the public Saturday, May 23.
The Lia Cook exhibition includes 20 larger-than-life woven portraits that illustrate the artist's exploration of the visual and physical realm that combines photographic likeness and textured textile.
The Ralston Crawford exhibition features images of the American industrial landscape during the 1950s. His imagery is characterized by flat, geometric planes illuminated by shafts of light and shadow.
An opening reception for both exhibitions is scheduled for Friday, May 29. Cook will attend and present a Gallery Walk-Through at 10:30 a.m. The following day, Saturday, May 30, Cook will present an Art Talk at 10:30 a.m. Both events are free and open to the public.
The UW Art Museum is located in the Centennial Complex at 2111 Willett Drive in Laramie. The museum is open Mondays from 10 a.m.-9 p. m. and Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Admission is free.
Lia Cook's "Face Maze" will be on display at the University of Wyoming Art Museum.
