A Sampling: Highlights from the Permanent Collection

September 8, 2006 – December 22, 2006

A Sampling: Highlights from the Permanent Collection, which included paintings, ceramics, and sculpture, is on view in the Helm Gallery from September 8 to December 22.

This was one of the last temporary installations of objects from the permanent collection before the existing galleries become used exclusively for the long-term installation of the permanent collection when the museum’s new wing opend in late 2007.

“A Sampling” featured landscapes, figurative work, and a variety of three-dimensional objects. A number of the works in the exhibition were familiar to regular visitors to the museum. Among the paintings included were Jeff Aeling’s Thunderstorm near Colby, KS, Roger Shimomura’s Martin Cheng: Painter and Fisherman, and Andrea Piper’s Iceberg. Three-dimensional objects included Jessie Montes’s cardboard sculpture, 21 with Cube, 2006 gift print artist Randy Regier’s Whitey Cracker, and Renée Stout’s neon signs, I Can Heal #2 and Church of the Crossroads. Several works in the exhibition were recent acquisitions and were on view for the first time. These included Bruce Moore’s Robert T. Aitchison (1961), a low-relief portrait bust, and Gordon Moore’s painting, Float (2005).
