Casper art exhibition features 11 Lander women

The Casper College Goodstein Art Gallery will host the exhibition “Give/Take” beginning Tuesday, Jan. 19 through Thursday, Feb. 18, 2016. A closing reception and artist’s talk will also take place on February 18 beginning at noon. An 11-women-artist group from Lander, Wyoming, created the “Give/Take” traveling art exhibit. “Linked in our focused exploration of nourishment, each artist explores how we need, receive, and provide nourishment on many levels, including physical, mental, and spiritual,” the artists said in a joint statement. The artists believe that their concept is relevant today especially in light of what they feel are the “overwhelming amount of choices and information available.” They note that how people choose to nourish themselves as well as others can also have “far-reaching impacts.” The exhibit, which contains a variety of paintings, original prints, sculpture, ceramics, and assemblage pieces, shows a number of different interpretations for the concept of nourishment. “Give/Take” features the works of Dannine Donaho, Lisa Hueneke, Virginia Moore, Tonya Pepper, Jodie Atherton, Kristin Vogel, Sally Watt, Anne Austin, Matlynn Snodgrass, Magdalene Kanengieter, and Cristin Zimme. “Give/Take” is funded in part by the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund and both the exhibit and artists’ talk are free and open to the public. The artists’ talk will be held in Room 102 of the Goodstein Visual Arts Center. #county10 #oilcity #news #caspercollege
