Final Weeks to View Two Exhibitions at the UW Art Museum


April 12, 2012 — The exhibitions "Brian Dickerson: Constructed Paintings and Drawings" and "Woven Traditions: Native American Basketry of the Southwest" will close Saturday, April 21, at the University of Wyoming Art Museum. Admission is free.

Dickerson explores the idea of remembered landscapes through minimal, three-dimensional paintings on wood. The heavily layered and reworked surfaces contain hidden forms that suggest deep emotional meaning and a sense of mystery.

"Woven Traditions: Native American Basketry of the Southwest," features the Art Museum's collection of baskets made by the Navajo, Hopi and Tohono O'odham tribes. The baskets depict elaborate, traditional and contemporary designs, including turtles, spiders, butterflies and kachinas.
