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.
