Posted 7-11-18, Lander Art Center (LANDER) — Sequencing Through Time & Place: The Carissa Mine opens to the public on July 21 in the Lander Art Center. It will continue through September 1, 2018. An opening reception is scheduled for Friday, July 20 from 6 to 8 pm.
Sequencing Through Time and Place: The Carissa Mine presents a contemporary response to place through works that explore physical, historical, and cultural aspects of the historic Carissa Gold Mine through photography, dance and movement (video and performance), and mixed media. The exhibition explores the human scale of the mine through imagery that lies at the juncture of industry and man, from hand tools to machinery, the spaces they occupy, and the rhythm and repetition of their use.
The opening reception will include a short dance performance by Margaret Wilson and a musical response to the exhibition by UW Professor Emeritus of Music Rod Garnett. A public program is also planned with Bredehoft, Garnett, Moldenhauer and Wilson on Saturday, July 21 at 11 am at the Carissa Mine in South Pass City.
Wendy Lemen Bredehoft, Susan Moldenhauer, and Margaret Wilson – mixed media artist, photographer, and dancer – have been working together under the name Sequencing Through Time & Place since 2009. Their work explores the fundamentals of the creative process and how artists perceive, respond to and convey place through different expressive lenses. They have worked side by side in Wyoming, London, Venice, and most recently at the Carissa Mine at the South Pass City Historical Site in Central Wyoming.
Sequencing Through Time and Place: The Carissa Mine is presented in conjunction with the 150th anniversary of South Pass City. A second exhibition which focuses on the three sections of the mine—the hoist house, trestle, and millhouse—is on view in the University of Wyoming Visual Art Building Gallery through September 14, 2018. The exhibitions are funded in part by the Friends of South Pass City and the Wyoming Arts Council through the Wyoming State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.
