CHADRON – “Compact Rhythms,” an exhibition from the Sheldon Museum of Art at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, will be in Memorial Hall’s Main Gallery Sept. 2-29. The Chadron State College Galaxy Series is sponsoring the exhibit. Hours for the Gallery are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The exhibition is part of Sheldon Statewide, an annual program that circulates the museum’s collection to venues throughout Nebraska.

“Compact Rhythms” highlights artists who have used abstraction to explore different ways of looking at the world around them. It presents a variety of modes and styles of non-representational art throughout the 20th century, focusing on instances where artists chose deliberately to work on a smaller scale.

The intimate scale of the featured works provides opportunities for close encounters with the art, allowing the viewer’s gaze to linger over the surface of the paintings and prints in order to observe the materials used and the forms depicted. The exhibition features works by artists Joseph Albers, Grace Hartigan, Alfred Henry Maurer, Joan Mitchell, Corita Kent, Seong Moy, and Sylvia Wald.

Face coverings and social distancing are required. For details, contact Conferencing at 308-432-6380 or sjohns@csc.edu.
