Nicole Crawford, University of Wyoming Art Museum collections curator, will present an art talk in conjunction with the exhibition “Ralston Crawford: The Artist’s Eye” Monday, Nov. 17, at 7 p.m. in Room 111 of the Visual Arts Building. The event is free and open to the public.

UW’s Crawford (no relation to the artist) co-curated the exhibition, titled “Ralston Crawford: The Artist’s Eye” as well as curated the exhibition featuring works by Crawford’s contemporaries.

Works in the exhibition “Ralston Crawford: Contemporaries” are from the Art Museum’s permanent collection and provide an art historical context for Crawford’s work. Nicole Crawford will explain this larger art historical perspective and discuss specific works and artists from both exhibitions.

Ralston Crawford is classified with the Precisionist artists of the 1920s and early 1930s. However, he abandoned the simple, geometric urban and industrial landscapes of Precisionism in favor of more abstract imagery after World War II. As a result, most of the scholarship and exhibitions on Crawford have focused on his early work of the 1930s, and his association with the Precisionist movement.

“Ralston Crawford: The Artist’s Eye” is presented with three additional exhibitions: “Early Work,” “Drawings & Photographs” and “Contemporaries,” which provide a broader context within which to explore and understand Crawford’s artistic work.

The exhibition closes Saturday, Nov. 15.
