"Nebraska Now: Sandra Williams, Polymer"
2005-07-16 until 2005-10-09
Museum of Nebraska Art
Kearney, NE, USA United States of America

Sandra Williams, Assistant Professor of Art at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, investigates irony in everyday life and personal nostalgia through the use of low-relief, mixed-media works. Characters, symbols, and icons are the visual core of this exhibition. Included are her well-known playful pieces created within the last five years as well as more recent works that contain slightly darker underlying observations of our culture.

Williams’ art consistently has a slick and near animation-like appearance. The small and large-scale pieces are created by carving relief imagery into wood panels. The recessed areas in the wood are then often filled with brightly colored resin to create planes and form within the “painting.” In this exhibition, Williams still utilizes her well-known dynamic color but introduces natural tones such as brown and amber that, upon inspection, may have cockroaches or teeth floating within.

Sandra Williams received a Bachelor of Fine Art degree from Cleveland Institute of Art, Ohio in 1994. She then pursued graduate studies at The Ohio State University in Columbus receiving her Master of Fine Art in 1999. She has exhibited at the Center for Contemporary Art in St. Louis, Missouri; University of New Hampshire, Durham; and Sioux City Art Center, Iowa. Her work is included in such collections as the Contemporary Crafts Gallery in Portland, Oregon and the Margaret Fetzer Memorial Library at The Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio.
