Denise Lemaster: Canadian Foothills
July 30 – November 30, 2014
A Canadian artist is set to make her debut at two U.S. art museums this year. Paintings by Canadian artist Denise Lemaster will be exhibited from July 30 to November 30, 2014 at Bone Creek Museum of Agrarian Art in David City, Nebraska. The paintings will then travel to The Nicolaysen Art Museum in Casper, Wyoming for exhibition Jan. 30 – May 17, 2015. This American debut of the artist’s paintings will be commemorated with a 20-page exhibition catalog.
Bone Creek Museum’s mission is connecting people to the land through art. This is the museum’s first exhibition of work by an artist from outside the U.S. The Nicolaysen Art Museum focuses on contemporary art of the Rocky Mountains and High Plains, stretching into Canada. The museums have joined together to
tell Lemaster’s story—through fine art that reflects the natural landscape and celebrates agrarian life.
The exhibition Canadian Foothills captures a variety of terrain in the mountains and plains surrounding Calgary, British Columbia. Lemaster paints the landscape of Canada with reverence toward the land. She hopes that people will remain connected to the land by enjoying and conserving the natural landscape. Through painting, she celebrates the beauty
of Canada’s wild land and glorifies it without leaving her own footprint.
Lemaster has been inspired by the Group of Seven including artists such as Carl Rungius and Andrew Wyeth. The artist constantly learns and experiments with neutral to bright colors and light. By furthering her art through en plein air (painting outdoors) Lemaster creates a sense of immediacy and connection to the natural world.
Grants for 2015 exhibition
Mid-America Arts Alliance and the Peter Kiewit Foundation have awarded grants to Bone Creek Museum of Agrarian Art to fund a new 2015 exhibition tentatively titled, The Farm: Then, Now, Tomorrow.
The Farm: Then, Now, Tomorrow is an exhibition in which historic farm photographs gathered from families with ties to farming will be used to inspire new work by artists from throughout the Midwest. The artists selected will interpret the stories of farm families by creating new works of art. Bone Creek Museum of Art, by sponsoring this exhibition, sets the stage for an innovative collaboration among farm families, artists, and the museum’s community of supporters
Funding from Mid-America Arts Alliance is part of the organization’s Artistic Innovations program. Ten percent of applications from the M-AAA six-state region were accepted to receive funding.
The Peter Kiewit Foundation of Omaha has provided a grant and is a key sponsor for this project.
