ART EXPRESS Exhibit on display!
The University of Wyoming Art Museum exhibition Through the looking Glass: The Portrait of the Artist will be on view in The Story Library from August 9 to September 30 in the Story Library Conference Room. We are so excited to be a part of the University of Wyoming Art Museum’s “bringing the world of art to Wyoming” campaign!
Through the Looking Glass: The Portrait of the Artist explores the tradition of self-portraits and portraits of artists in variety of mediums including drawings, prints and photography. Involved in creative pursuits, artists become interesting candidates for portrait subjects and self-portraits allow for the artist to make a unique statement about themselves. With traditional commissioned portraits the expectation is a favorable likeness of the sitter, however an artist’s self portrait or a portrait of the artist reveals more than the sitter’s physical appearance removing the conventional constraints and allowing for more experimentation.
The Touring Exhibition Service is celebrating 26 years of service throughout Wyoming.
It is made possible in part by FMC Corporation and the UW Art Museum Gala Fund.
