The Casper College Goodstein Gallery will host the University of Wyoming Art Museum’s touring exhibition of Joel Ostlind’s work through Thursday, Jan. 24.
“I was raised in Wyoming and have chosen . . . to live in this region and work to interpret the things I value here: the light, the land, and the people who move through it,” says Casper-born Ostlind.
A master printmaker, Ostlind, moves fluidly between the intaglio printmaking processes of etching, drypoint, aquatint, sugar lift, and lithography, as well as monoprint, a process of applying ink to a flat surface that results in a single, unique print.
Ostlind, who now lives near Big Horn, has followed in the footsteps of Wyoming’s earlier cowboy-turned-artists Hans Kleiber and Bill Gollings, and draws on his cowboy life experience as the subject of his images.
The Goodstein Gallery is located in the Goodstein Visual Arts Center at Casper College and is open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
