Adrianne Watson Art Exhibition and Reception

March 18, 2010

Showing in the Memorial Hall Main Gallery until Mar. 25 is the work of Adrianne Watson. Watson, a 2001 graduate of Chadron High School who earned a master’s degree from the California College of Fine Arts, said she attempts to “unite two entirely different experiences: living in the Philippines during World War II and growing up in rural Nebraska.”

The exhibit features 22 pieces, mostly works of water color and colored pencil that have been digitally transferred to larger format. The centerpiece, “Care Package,” is a mixed media sculpture anchored by a carousel horse.

The artist will attend a public reception for the show Thursday, March 25, 4-6 p.m. at Memorial Hall.

Watson is the daughter of George and Kit Watson of Chadron. Her father is a professor of justice studies at CSC and her mother is an accomplished artist who often teaches courses at CSC.

Watson’s exhibit is not the only show in Memorial Hall that provides a multicultural experience.

Gallery 239 upstairs features the art of Ming Zhou, who describes her work as a critique of China’s new middle class. 

The galleries are open Monday through Friday, from 9 am to 4:30 pm. Or by appointment. For more information contact 308-432-6317
