A to Z Global Folk Art
July 1 – Oct 20, 2017
An exceptional collection of “art that is felt with the heart.” A to Z Global Folk Art honors everyday art that embodies and reflects cultural identity. “We are excited to showcase a variety of eclectic art from local cultures around the world,” said Heidi Cross, Chair of the Museum’s Board of Directors. “Unlike items that are mass produced, folk art conveys the personality of the craftsperson as well as the artist’s culture and community. It is the art of the everyday by people with a creative spirit.”
Life in Istanbul ~ Village of Millions
Sept 1 – Dec 30, 2017
Bringing Turkey’s wonders to the West, Life in Istanbul ~ Village of Millions will showcase the vibrant and colorful paintings of Gabrielle “Gabby” Reeves, a native of Casper, Wyoming. Reeves moved to Istanbul in 2011 after receiving her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from the University of Wyoming. Working primarily in oil and watercolor, Reeves vividly captures the stratified and surreal nature of life in Istanbul and the life of the city itself. Reeves’ paintings using multiple media are often representations of an Istanbul fading away due to development and urban sprawl.
