SC to host reception for DeVuono art show Thursday @ Whitney Center for the Arts
Dec 15 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

SHERIDAN — Sheridan College will host a reception for Lanny DeVuono’s new show on display in the Whitney Center for the Arts. The reception will take place Thursday from 5-7 p.m.

The exhibition, “Outer Space,” comes to Sheridan from the Denver Contemporary Art Museum.

DeVuono uses landscape imagery as a metaphor to examine both the physical environment in which we live, as well as the social and psychological environments of our expectations.

In this series at Sheridan College, she is interested in the current privatization of space research, historical parallels with past explorations as well as the fast changing environments of the earth.

DeVuono is an associate professor at the University of Colorado Denver and has taught at Eastern Washington University, New York University, William Paterson University, Rangsit University in Thailand and Trivandrum College of Fine Art in India.

She also writes on contemporary art under the name Frances DeVuono.

UCROSS — For bird lovers and art lovers alike, Saturday will provide an opportunity to experience a combination of the two, through a series of events at the Ucross Foundation Art Gallery.

The community art will also be catalogued online at, a website created by Baal intended to develop a community of “citizen artists.”

The following is the schedule of events:

• 9 a.m. — doors open at the Ucross Art Gallery
