UW Art Museum Presents Gallery Walk, Art Talk for Neltje Exhibition


May 25, 2010 — TEXTPopular Wyoming abstract expressionist Neltje is featured in a solo exhibition, "Neltje," on view through Aug. 28, at the University of Wyoming Art Museum. A gallery walk though with the artist is scheduled Friday, June 4, at 4:30 p.m. An art talk is scheduled for Saturday, June 5, at 1:30 p.m.

Neltje's work is rooted in movement and gesture. She combines gestural marks with bold colors. A prolific artist, Neltje features some of her more recent paintings, which explore new directions in combining text, objects and torn paper into the compositions.

"Like all of her pieces, Neltje's new works tell stories," says UW Art Museum publicist Shantana Judkins. "Using colorful papers and newspapers from her many travels and objects from friends and colleagues, she creates work that is personal and multi-layered. Her compositions balance the freedom of gesture with formal shapes and lines."

For additional information on exhibitions and programs, call the UW Art Museum at (307) 766-6622 or visit the museum's Web page at www.uwyo.edu/artmuseum or blog at www.uwartmuseum.blogspot.com.

"Imagine learning from the masters" is a guiding principle of the UW Art Museum's programs. The museum is located in the Centennial Complex at 2111 Willett Drive in Laramie. The museum is open Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Admission is free.
