New Exhibitions Open Saturday at UW Art Museum


May 20, 2013 — Three new exhibitions will open at the University of Wyoming Art Museum Saturday, May 25.

Two exhibitions, “David Simpson” and “Michael Eastman: Urban Luminosity,” feature works by contemporary artists, while “Masterworks from the Art Museum Collection” showcases works from the permanent collection.

“David Simpson” is a solo exhibition by the California Bay Area painter. Simpson uses interference paints, which contain micro-particles coated with titanium oxide or mica. His color field paintings shift in color and hue as the viewer’s perspective changes.

“Michael Eastman: Urban Luminosity” features large-scale photographs of urban landscapes that examine man-made environments. Eastman’s images are made after dark, requiring lengthy exposures. The interior and exterior images showcase contemporary and modern architecture of major cities, including Shanghai, China; New York City; and Osaka, Japan.

“Masterworks from the Art Museum Collection” includes some of art’s historically important works from the permanent collection. Works by Alexander Calder, Albert Bierstadt and Salvador Dali are included in the exhibition. The works are presented in a variety of mediums and highlight key American and European art movements.

For more information, call the Art Museum at (307) 766-6622 or visit www.uwyo.edu/artmuseum; and blog at www.uwyoartmuseum.org. Follow the museum on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/uwyoartmuseum.

“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. to 5 p.m. Admission is free.
