July 30, 2013 — The final day to see two exhibitions at the University of Wyoming Art Museum is Saturday, Aug. 3.
“Kimonos: Strappo Prints by Harold Garde” and “Masterworks from the Art Museum Collection” are two of the summer exhibitions featured by the Art Museum. New fall exhibitions will open Sept. 7.
“Kimonos: Strappo Prints by Harold Garde” is the most recent exhibition for the Art Museum's “Regional Touring Exhibition Service,” which makes exhibitions of original artwork available to institutions around the state. It will be available for scheduling this fall. The exhibition features Strappo prints, a technique that Garde invented, that explore the ‘T’ shape of the kimono.
“Masterworks from the Art Museum Collection” showcases some of the most historically important works from the Art Museum’s permanent collection. Included are works by such artists as Albert Bierstadt, Pablo Picasso and Mary Cassatt.
Through its Museum as Classroom approach, the UW Art Museum places art at the center of learning for all ages. The museum is located in the Centennial Complex at 2111 Willett Drive in Laramie. Hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Admission is free.
Harold Garde’s “Black Line Kimono” is among works on display in the UW Art Museum through Saturday, Aug. 3.
