Art Workshop for UW Students next Friday

Art museum chief preparator Sterling Smith (left) and preparator David Jones (right), shown here installing Charles Parsons' sculpture on Prexy's Pasture last summer, will host a matting, framing and art preparing workshop for UW students next Friday.

With the annual Juried University of Wyoming Student Art Exhibition just a few short months away, UW Art Museum chief preparator, Sterling Smith, and preparator, David Jones, will host a workshop on Friday, November 6th at 10am in the Fine Arts Building for all interested UW students. Smith and Jones will demonstrate the proper way for matting and framing artwork and how to best prepare 2D and 3D art for exhibition.

The annual exhibition, which is open to all UW students at the undergraduate, graduate and post-baccalaureate level, aims to give aspiring artists a professional experience working with both a juror and a museum. Students are expected to submit artwork that is professionally prepared and ready to install. This workshop will provide tips and pointers on how to do that, and the UW preparators are ready to answer any questions about how to best prepare and present your artwork!

For more information, call the museum at 307-766-6622.
