In conjunction with the exhibition “Dickie Landry: Composer. Saxophonist. Photographer. Artist,” artist and musician Dickie Landry will be at the University of Wyoming until Wednesday, Oct. 7, for an artistic residency to interact with students and present a variety of free public events.

The exhibition is on view at the UW Art Museum until Saturday, Dec. 19. It explores the innovations in visual art, performance art and music in 1970s New York through Landry’s drawings, photographs and paintings.

Landry will lead a gallery walk-through and perform on saxophone Friday, Oct. 2, at 10:30 a.m. at the UW Art Museum. At this free event, attendees will learn about the artist’s work and life, and have the opportunity to ask questions in a casual setting.

He will present “Repetition and Response: An Interdisciplinary Student Collaboration EventFriday, Oct. 2, at 6 p.m. in the Visual Art Building lobby. Babs Case, artistic curator of the Center for the Arts in Jackson, and Landry will speak; and join students for dance, music and art experimentation and interdisciplinary conversations.

A free performance of “Trialogue” is scheduled Monday, Oct. 5, at 7 p.m. in the College of Arts and Sciences auditorium. “Trialogue” is a multidisciplinary live performance of movement, music and visual art.

The final UW event is an art talk by Landry Tuesday, Oct. 6, at 7 p.m. in Room 111 of the Visual Arts Building.

Landry will travel to Jackson where a concurrent exhibition, “Dickie Landry: Explorations in Axonometric Projection,” is on view at the Center for the Arts Oct. 9-14.

“Trialogue” will be performed in Jackson Wednesday, Oct. 14, featuring Case, Landry and Francesco Romo of Contemporary Dance Wyoming. There will be an opening reception at 5:30 p.m., followed by a performance at 7:30 p.m.

“Dickie is a quintessential artist,” Case says. “His life has been his work. This performance will be unlike other performances because it is truly multidisciplinary. Our work in ‘Trialogue’ is not only of historical importance, but carries references to the modern day video mapping." 

Presented by the UW Art Museum, Center for the Arts, Art Association of Jackson Hole and Dancers’ Workshop, all events are free and open to the public.
