Don’t miss out on this fabulous husband-and-wife exhibition featuring breathtaking vistas and landscapes of Wyoming.
“Married to the Landscape” — a vibrant exhibition of landscapes by artist couple Aaron and Jenny Wuerker — is on view for one more week (through August 22) at Casper, Wyoming’s Nicolaysen Art Museum.
The Wuerkers have been painting the Wyoming landscape together for nearly 25 years and “for each of us” they say, “the need to define an iconic American landscape has repeatedly surfaced. For Jenny, that means capturing the feeling of stark expanse in large paintings with big skies racing back to meet distant ridges and light stretching to the horizon. In Aaron’s work, the shapes of industrial objects mimic natural formations in the landscape, creating silent interactions. Ultimately, a realist perspective serves to celebrate the beauty of common places. In this recent body of paintings, we hope to share a vision of the Western landscape that one might identify the next time they see a massive cloud formation or road signs lined up with the horizon.”
