Great Plains exhibition showcases new acquisitions

New additions to the Great Plains Art Museum will be featured when the exhibit "Recent Acquisitions to the Permanent Collection" opens Nov. 4.

The exhibit will include 40 works donated over the last four years from the private collection of Mark and Carol Moseman of David City.

Along with the works from the Moseman collection, another 18 works acquired through donation and purchase over the past year will be exhibited. The most recent acquisition, a gift of Edward Schmidt, Eleanor McAuliffe and James Schmidt in honor of their parents, Donald J. and Kathryn F. Schmidt, is a watercolor painting by Native American artist Kingsley "King" D. Kuka (1947-2004) titled "Wind Coming."

Among the first class of artists to graduate from the Institute for Native American Art in Santa Fe, N.M., Kuka was pivotal in the growing Native American Art Movement, influencing an entire younger generation of Native American artists.

The exhibition is free and open to the public, as is an opening reception, from 7 to 9 p.m. Nov. 4.
