Representing the West 2020

February 8 - May 10, 2020 | White Gallery


The annual Representing the West: A New Frontier exhibit considers the changing cultures and myths of the American West. A juried exhibition open to artists from across the nation, this show welcomes non-traditional subject matter, materials and concepts as well as traditional depictions of the West. The Sangre de Cristo Arts center awards $5,000 in prize money and the People's Choice Award winner receives a solo exhibition the following year. Be sure to vote for your favorite piece!

About the Juror: 
Nicole M. Crawford joined the University of Wyoming Art Museum in 2009 as the new Curator of Collections and moved into her current role as Assistant Director and Chief Curator in 2018. Formerly the Vice President of Gallery Operations and Director at the Gerald Peters Gallery in Santa Fe, she supervised staff, conducted research and worked with numerous collectors during her eight years with the gallery. Previously she was the curatorial assistant at the Sheldon Museum of Art on the University of Nebraska campus and completed the academic internship program at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Crawford has a dual MA in Art History and Museum Studies and a BA in Art History from the University of Nebraska. Her scholarship focus is American Modernism, but she has conducted research and written extensively on many other art genres. Her current research is focused on the role of collector in the acquisition, care, documentation and display of objects both through the collector’s vision and the responsibility of the museum.
