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

May 25, 2010
Art painting
"Clear and Silent Light IV" is among the works that can be seen in the UW Art Museum exhibition, "Neltje."

Popular 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."
