  Impressions of the West: Works of Art from Special Collections  
(Arts & Culture - UT Arlington and Community)

Impressions of the West: Works of Art from Special Collections is located in Special Collections, on UT Arlington Central Library's sixth floor and runs through January 14, 2012. Hours are 9am - 7pm Monday, 9am - 5pm Tuesday through Saturday. This exhibit is free and open to the public. For more information call 817-272-3393.

This exhibit features over 30 paintings, sculptures, and prints which showcase how the American West has been viewed by artists and popular culture and offers a look at how artists interpreted the land and peoples of the southwest and west. Focusing on artists who worked during the twentieth century, Impressions of the West will explore whether western art is a truthful recording of a bygone era, or an idealized version of history, or merely kitsch created for the popular market.

Featured in the exhibit will be works by such greats as Frederic Remington and Charles Marion Russell, who epitomize western art, as well as Bert Phillips, one of the founding members of the Taos School. Works by other well know western artists such as Olaf Wieghorst and Fremont Ellis will also be on display.

Western art has had a major impact on popular culture and continues to capture our imagination even today. For more information, visit http://www.uta.edu/library/spco/currentexhibit.php.
