Reception for Aaron Wuerker @ Sagebrush Community Art Center
Mar 6 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

SHERIDAN — An artist reception for Buffalo artist Aaron Wuerker will be held on Friday March 6 from 5-7 p.m. at the Sagebrush Community Art Center.

Wuerker’s show, “Aaron Wuerker: Recent Landscapes,” will be on display through March 31 in the center’s Invitational Gallery.

Wuerker earned a bachelor’s in fine arts from Kansas City Art Institute in 1992 and a master’s in fine arts from Yale University in 1995. He and his wife, Jenny, also a renowned artist, own the Crazy Woman Fine Art Gallery in Buffalo.

“My work has continually returned to a realist vision of the landscape,” Wuerker said. “I’m usually drawn to compositions where mechanized forms either mimic or contrast with the natural forms in the land.”

The art center is located at 201 E. Fifth St.

Final day for Harry Jackson exhibit at Ucross @ Ucross Foundation Art Gallery
Apr 10 all-day

UCROSS — The Ucross Foundation will close its exhibit featuring the abstract art of Harry Jackson today.

The show is the first of its kind since 1953.

Harry Jackson was born in Chicago in 1924 and first spent time in Wyoming in 1938, when he worked as a cowboy on the Pitchfork Ranch near Meeteetse. He enlisted in the Marines at age 18 and was wounded in combat in the Central Pacific battles of Tarawa in 1943 and Saipan in 1944.

At 20, he became an official Marine Corps Combat Artist, the youngest ever, while stationed in Los Angeles. Jackson also spent much time in Europe where he studied the Old Masters and had a studio in Italy.

“Well-Aimed Lightning: The Abstract Art of Harry Jackson,” which will also include a video about Jackson’s life, is on view through April 10.

The Ucross Foundation Art Gallery is located at 30 Big Red Lane in Ucross.
