Exhibition Opens in UW Visual Arts Gallery
January 24, 2013 — “Coast to Coast by Post: An Exploration in Sculpture” will be displayed Jan. 25-March 31 in the University of Wyoming Visual Arts Gallery at the corner of 22nd Street and Willett Drive.
The opening reception is scheduled Friday, Jan. 25, from 6-8 p.m. The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.
Curated by Ashley Hope Carlisle, an associate professor of art, and Department of Art Instructional Technician David Jones, the exhibition features 43 nationally recognized artists.
Because of the many challenges and costs associated with shipping and transporting large sculptural pieces, the participants were asked to create a piece that would travel well within a U.S. Postal Service flat-rate box. The piece could span larger once removed from the box and assembled, and it could be made from any material of the artist’s choosing.
“The resulting exhibition presents an amazing variety of perspectives, materials and conversations that capture how truly diverse contemporary art is today,” Hope Carlisle says. “From somber to hilarious, quietly contemplative to brutally honest, we are proud to share these stories.”
The Visual Arts Gallery is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m-5 p.m. For more information, email Hope Carlisle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dylan Neuwirth’s “NOW” is among works in the UW Department of Art Exhibition “Coast to Coast by Post: An Exploration in Sculpture” which is on display Jan. 25-March 31 in the Visual Arts Gallery.
