A panel discussion in conjunction with the exhibition, Journeys along the Sepik River: Tribal Art from Papua New Guinea will be held on Monday, July 23 at 7 p.m. in the Visual Arts Building, room 111. The exhibition in the University of Wyoming Art Museum will be open for viewing before the panel presentation.
Journeys along the Sepik River is partially drawn from a recent gift from The Salgo Trust for Education and features other items lent by Wyoming artist Neltje, and long-time arts advocate and executive director of the Jentel Foundation, Mary Jane Edwards. Both Neltje and Edwards will be participants of the panel discussion. The exhibition curator, Barbara Stone, will moderate. The panel will focus on themes of the exhibition, the uses – both functional and decorative – of some of the objects on view, as well as on personal perspectives of traveling to Papua New Guinea. This event is free and open to the public.
