The University of Wyoming Art Museum will present its spring exhibitions during a free public reception from 6-8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 27.

"The 37th Annual Juried UW Student Exhibition" presents the creative work of UW students from all disciplines. This year's juror is Sharon Kennedy, curator of cultural and civic engagement at the University of Nebraska's Sheldon Museum of Art. An awards ceremony for standout work from the Juried UW Student Exhibition will take place at 6:30 p.m.

Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky's "The Industrial Sublime" presents masterful large-scale color images from around the world that explore the landscape of industry, consumerism and culture. 

Brian Dickerson explores the idea of "remembered landscapes" through minimal, three-dimensional paintings on wood through his exhibition, "Constructed Paintings and Drawings." The heavily layered and reworked surfaces contain hidden forms, suggesting deep emotional meaning and a sense of mystery.

"Photography from the Twentieth Century," from the Art Museum Collection, examines the creative vision of early photographers and their place in developing of an American genre. The first show is a two-part exhibition that focuses on pictorial and portrait traditions -- the basis of early photography.

Also from the Art Museum's collection, "Woven Traditions, Native American Basketry of the Southwest," shows baskets that feature traditional and contemporary designs, including turtles, spiders, butterflies and kachinas.
