Another Look at Landscapes

968.3A landscape painting can be a beautiful image of a time and place, of nature and weather, or of light and shadow. However, there is a long tradition in painting that uses landscapes for different purposes. Landscapes can depict stories, either real or allegorical. Likewise, they can be created to express moods or states of emotion. A landscape can also serve as the subject of an artist’s exploration of design and compositional principles.
The landscapes in this exhibition, selected from works in the Art Center’s Permanent Collection, reflect these artistic traditions of storytelling, expression, and composition.

epilogueEpilogue marks both an important, shared point in the artists’ careers as well as an exploration of what happens individually after the experience of a life-changing moment. In 2014, Bablitz, Fondrie, and Hruby completed their Master of Fine Arts degrees in Imaging Arts at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Each artist has used photography to re-examine a recent dramatic occurrence in his/her life to analyze what happens next.

The Briar Cliff Review Exhibition
 Reception: Thursday, April 16, 6:00 - 8:30 pm April 16 – June 28, 2015
The Briar Cliff Review Exhibition

brcreview2015The Sioux City Art Center is pleased to present this exhibition of artworks by local, regional and national artists, which were selected for the 2015 edition of The Briar Cliff Review, Briar Cliff University’s award-winning journal celebrating its 27th year. This impressive annual publication focuses on poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and art.

The selections of the artworks included in this exhibition have been made through a collaborative effort between the art editor of The Briar Cliff Review—Jeff Baldus, member of the art faculty of Briar Cliff University—and Todd Behrens, curator of the Sioux City Art Center. They review a large number of works created by artists who help shape the cultural landscape in our area: students, alumni, and faculty members of Briar Cliff University; artists living in Siouxland and throughout the tri-state area; and artists who are represented by galleries in our region. The resulting selection is an annual overview of the ideas and styles behind much of the best art currently available in the region.
