28th Annual Sheldon Statewide
Depicting Nature: From the
Scientific to the Sublime
April 7 - May 6, 2015
Morton-James Public Library
The paintings, photographs, and prints that comprise this year’s Sheldon Statewide exhibition explore the various ways artists portray nature. Spanning 150 years, these works—which range from early botanical studies to contemporary photographs—present unique and diverse interpretations of the natural environment. Although varying in subject, style, and technique, these works all speak to the enduring fascination artists have with nature.
Sheldon Statewide is an education and exhibition outreach program of the Sheldon Museum of Art at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. Its mission is to serve Nebraska communities throughout the state by sharing the museum’s outstanding collection of American art.
The 28th annual Sheldon Statewide exhibition is made possible by the generous support of the Sheldon Art Association, Nebraska Arts Council and Nebraska Cultural Endowment, Farmers Mutual Insurance of Nebraska, and James and Rhonda Seacrest. The exhibit is being brought to the Morton-James Public Library with funding from the Harry and Grace Moller Endowment Fund.
