UW Art Museum Exhibitions Available to Wyoming Organizations
October 2, 2013 — The University of Wyoming Art Museum has four traveling exhibitions of original artwork available to Wyoming organizations through the Regional Touring Exhibition Service.
Exhibitions are available to Wyoming organizations for the cost of one-way shipping. Out-of-state organizations can reserve the exhibitions for the cost of round-trip shipping. These exhibitions are designed for sites such as libraries, schools, community centers, galleries and museums. Insurance, news releases, publicity photos and exhibition interpretation are provided by the Art Museum.
“Through the Looking Glass: The Portrait of the Artist” explores the tradition of self-portraits and portraits of artists in a variety of mediums including drawings, prints and photography. This exhibition is scheduled to be in Torrington, Jackson, Rock Springs and Lander in 2013. The spring also has dates available.
“Kimonos: Strappo Prints by Harold Garde” had its premiere at the UW Art Museum this summer and is now available for scheduling through 2015. Garde, a UW graduate, creates work that is rooted in abstract expressionism. He works in a series that uses tangible objects and symbols as recurring subjects, which engage and elicit a personal response from the viewer. In his Kimonos series, he explores the ‘T’ shape of the garment, creating interpretations of the form in variations from bold to subtle. To create the Strappo print, a technique that he invented, Garde paints in reverse on a piece of glass, building up layers of paint to achieve the image. Once complete, it is transferred to a heavy print paper.
“The Botanical Series: The Photographic Work of Gerald Lang and Jennifer Anne Tucker” references the botanical art tradition by using a scanner and digital printer to create images of remarkable clarity and beauty. This exhibition presents opportunities for interdisciplinary discussions and exploration. It can be scheduled now and will begin its tour in January.
“Cyrus Baldridge: An American Artist in China” presents a selection of works completed during the artist’s journeys in Asia, where his style was dramatically affected by the exposure to the sparse lines of traditional Asian art. This exhibition will open at the UW Art Museum next summer and will be available for scheduling next fall.
