The new University of Wyoming Art Museum Ann Simpson Art Mobile Curator, Erica Ramsey, is gearing up to travel the state with the thought-provoking exhibit What’s That? Investigating Abstract Art. The new theme of abstraction promises to pose interesting creative and intellectual challenges to the people of Wyoming. The new exhibit includes a fascinating array of works selected from the UW Art Museum’s collections, and includes serigraphs, etchings, woodcuts, lithographs, aquatints, a pen and ink drawing, and a gouache painting.
Erica brings a background in art, education, and social theory to the Artmobile, which she is excited to share with Wyomingites of all ages. Erica graduated in 2009 from the University of Wyoming with a BFA in Painting and Drawing, and a BA in Women’s Studies. She is currently working on a third BA in Special Education through Western Governors University. Erica has lived in Wyoming all of her life, and is thrilled about the opportunity to explore our wonderful state with great works of art in tow, discussing abstraction and sharing the creative process.
The Artmobile is a statewide program, which offers interactive presentations about the current Artmobile exhibition, and hands-on art workshops where Artmobile programing is inquiry-based, tailored to meet the needs of its audience and coordinated with Wyoming educational standards in Art.
If you and your community would enjoy participating in this dialogue and the creative processes of abstraction, please contact Erica Ramsey to schedule a visit or with any questions by phone at 307-399-2941 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Visits to towns all over Wyoming will recommence in January 2014. No town is too small to have the Artmobile visit!
