Two Art Exhibitions Closing This Weekend
November 5, 2012 — Two University of Wyoming Art Museum exhibitions will close Saturday, Nov. 10. They are “Caribbean Color, Urban Lines and International Forms: Selected Works by Emilio Sanchez”; and “Bold Strokes and Finesse: The Stage Designs of John Ezel.”
Cuban-born Emilio Sanchez creates stylized images that reveal the abstract stillness of manufactured environments. Presenting a selection of urban scenes, the exhibition highlights Sanchez’s contributions to modernism that he developed in Latin America and the Caribbean. His work demonstrates the internationalism and colonial influences that contributed to the development of American art.
Scenic Designer John Ezell has created stage designs for plays by several American dramatists, including Eugene O’Neill, Thornton Wilder and George Abbott. His productions have been seen in venues such as the New York Shakespeare Festival, the Hong Kong Repertory Theatre, the Royal Danish Ballet in Copenhagen and the Lyric Opera of Chicago. His exhibition is sponsored by the UW Department of Theatre and Dance, the UW Eminent Artist Series, and the UW Art Museum.
“Imagine learning from the masters” is a guiding principle of the UW Art Museum’s programs. Located in the Centennial Complex at 2111 Willett Drive in Laramie, the museum is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Hours are extended Mondays until 9 p.m. through November. Admission is free.
