'New Perspectives' on display at Great Plains Art Museum


An exhibition featuring work by the Nebraska Women's Caucus for Art opened Jan. 6 and runs through March 26 at the Great Plains Art Museum.

"New Perspectives" includes two- and three-dimensional work by more than 40 artists who are members of the Nebraska Women's Caucus for Art. The Nebraska Women's Caucus for Art is a regional organization of women in the arts. Its mission is to support women committed to the visual arts and increase their visibility through meetings, regional exhibitions, various events and activities. Founded in 1992, the caucus has about 100 members.

Artists were asked to submit work they felt offered a new perspective to a particular subject, emotion, experience, political view or other concept.

The exhibition includes a variety of media - from randomly collected dryer lint in Trudie Teijink's two-dimensional work, to mousetraps in Kathleen D'Agosta Wisler's sculpture - each offering a unique look on everyday objects.

An opening public reception is from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Jan. 6 at the museum.

The Great Plains Art Museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 1:30-5 p.m. Sundays. It is closed Mondays. The museum does not charge admission.
