The University of Wyoming Art Museum is now showing five new exhibitions through the spring.

“The 37th Annual Juried UW Student Exhibition” presents the creative work of UW students from all disciplines. This year’s juror is Sharon Kennedy, curator of cultural and civic engagement at the University of Nebraska’s Sheldon Museum of Art. Shows through MARCH 17.

Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky’s “The Industrial Sublime” presents masterful large-scale color images from around the world that explore the landscape of industry, consumerism and culture.

Brian Dickerson explores the idea of “remembered landscapes” through minimal, three-dimensional paintings on wood through his exhibition, “Constructed Paintings and Drawings.” The heavily layered and reworked surfaces contain hidden forms, suggesting deep emotional meaning and a sense of mystery.

“Photography from the Twentieth Century,” from the Art Museum Collection, examines the creative vision of early photographers and their place in developing of an American genre. The first show is a two-part exhibition that focuses on pictorial and portrait traditions — the basis of early photography.

Also from the Art Museum’s collection, “Woven Traditions, Native American Basketry of the Southwest,” shows baskets that feature traditional and contemporary designs, including turtles, spiders, butterflies and kachinas.

Civil Dialogue

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps...

  1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

  2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

  3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

  4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

  5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at, or call Editor Jason Adrians at 266-0545 or Content Director David Mayberry at 266-0633. This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

  6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

  7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

  8. Your comment is in really poor taste.
