Artists of the Black Hills at Eastern Wyoming College
January 17, 2007
TORRINGTON, WY - The Eastern Wyoming College Art Department is proud to announce its first exhibition of the Spring Semester. We are pleased to have four artist members of the Artists of the Black Hills will have their work on exhibit in the Lobby Gallery of the Fine Arts wing to open our Spring season. The ABH association includes artists from Wyoming, Nebraska, and South Dakota, in a diverse range of styles and techniques. This is the first time this group has exhibited here, and we are very excited to have four of their outstanding members on our campus.
Mary B. Hunt
Represented by a number of galleries in the West, Mary Hunt explores an astonishing range of expression with her well known subject matter of Western motifs and bird life. Her oil paintings, justly celebrated for their rich color and impeccable surfaces, seem to literally breathe the air in which the birds live. Color emanates from within the subjects in her paintings, bathed in light both solid and ethereal.
The plains come to life in Peg Fowler's expressionistic pastel paintings; she remains true to the naturally occurring forms and surfaces of the landscape while heightening color and movement into a visionary rendition. Her works vibrate with vivid hues and rhythmic movement, emulating the sensation of wind moving through the grasses, skies, and trees of the Black Hills.
Nancy K Bowman
Rapid City, South Dakota
One of the region's most accomplished printmakers, Nancy Bowman's intaglio works, incorporating techniques such as etching, aquatint, drypoint, and embossing, are powerful in composition as well as subtle in execution. The wide range of subject in her prints all share a lovely and unique quality of light, rich and luminous.
Sarah Rogers gives new life and a singular vision to wildlife subjects. Working in a variety of mediums, she gives free reign to improvisational color and expressive handling of materials, allowing the animals to jump to life in front of the viewer. Both free and precise, her images are truly unforgettable.
