PFAC presents June Glassonart show & reception Oct. 7
by Pinedale Fine Arts Council
September 27, 2016
The Pinedale Fine Arts Council is proud to present an exhibit/lecture and reception for Laramie, Wyoming artist June Glasson on Friday, October 7 at 7 p.m. in the Sublette County Library (Pinedale) Lovatt Room. This event is free to the public and wine and appetizers will be served. Glasson will be presenting a body of work created in Quink, a water-based media that she will be sharing with Pinedale High School and Middle School students.
An artist and designer living in Laramie, June Glasson uses portraiture and found objects to create work that explores gender and ideas about the "American West." Through drawing, painting, and installation, her work often deploys iconic "western" imagery—buffalo, weaponry, truck nutz, etc.—to investigate dominant narratives about the region, narratives that often ignore its complicated history. Simultaneously, this work also reflects her personal relationship with the landscape, people, and culture of Wyoming - a place that is both exotic and home to her.
June’s paintings have been exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery in London, Nature Morte Gallery in Berlin and various New York and stateside galleries and museums. Glasson’s work has also appeared in New American Paintings, the Paris Review, The Wall Street Journal, GuernicaVersal, People as well as the film "My Idiot Brother" starring Paul Rudd.
Glasson will also be spending a week in residence with Pinedale High School and Middle School art students Oct. 3-7. The residency will focus on the Quink media.
The Oct. 7 evening reception will feature Glasson presenting a slide show lecture accompanied by a small exhibit of her work as well as completed works by Pinedale Middle and High School students during her week-in-residence.
June Glasson’s reception and residency are presented by the Pinedale Fine Arts Council with support from Sublette BOCES, Wyoming Arts Council and Sublette County School District No. 1.
