McCOOK, Nebraska -- The Wrightstone Fine Arts Gallery on the McCook Community College campus is currently showing "Lewis and Clark" -- an exhibit form the Nebraska artist's group Impact
In this show, Impact artists respond to the dramatic history of the Lewis and Clark expedition. The works pay tribute to the lasting beauty of the Missouri River traversed by the Corps of Discovery, from reflections of morning sun to the dark at the cusp of evening. Tall grass prairie, trees in valleys, wild roses, eroded hoodoos on bluffs, all convey the magic of what is unchanged in the western landscape.
There are also abstract interpretations of the landscape, and portraits--Lewis, Clark, Sacagawea. This show, varied, surprising, and educational, offers an exciting new look at one of the great moments of American history.
The Wrightstone Gallery is open from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday and on Tuesdays Thursdays until 9 p.m.
Impact Membership is limited to Nebraska artists, nationally recognized within their respective artistic disciplines. Artists are elected through an independent jury. Each member is committed to four years, participating in all programs, exhibitions, and meetings.
