Artists Now! Guest Lecture Series: Cynthia Brinich-Langlois
February 1 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Microcosms & Migrations
Through an exploration of the landscape genre, Cynthia Brinich-Langlois emphasizes the effects of human intervention and manipulation in terms of altered topographies, cartographic systems of ordering space, and metaphorical interpretations of ecological systems. Her narrative prints respond to changes observed in the natural world and acknowledge the essential relationship between people and the land they inhabit. Her field-based practice employs drawings, prints, and written reflections to create site-responsive investigations of place, and examine ongoing shifts in land use and accessibility in locations shaped by the subtle and monumental transformations that characterize the natural world.

UCROSS: A PORTRAIT IN PLACE
Lannan Foundation Gallery, 309 Read St.,
Open noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, or by appointment
Through Dec. 11, the Lannan Foundation hosts an exhibition — or, more specifically, an engaging, multidimensional portrait of a vast western landscape. In their pieces, the seven participating artists, all alumni of the Land Arts of the American West program at the University of New Mexico, respond to time spent roaming over a 20,000-acre cattle and sheep ranch in northeastern Wyoming. Their explorations of the Ucross Ranch and their artmaking were aided by Charlie Bettigole, director of the Ucross High Plains Stewardship Initiative, which is based at the ranch and at Yale University’s School of Forestry & Environmental Studies.

The most important piece of information at the small exhibit in Room G01, Kroon Hall is its title: “Ucross: A Portrait in Place.” The exhibit only makes sense with the knowledge that all the works were inspired by the same place, Ucross Foundation’s cattle ranch in Wyoming. The artworks produced by the seven featured artists initially seems too diverse to cohere, but by keeping an idea of the ranch as setting and source of inspiration, I could see them begin to speak to each other, and a portrait of the place really does emerge.
