October 2017 – June 2018 Schneider Gallery: The NIC’s Carl Link collection comprises the second largest subcategory of the Permanent Collection which includes approximately 2,000 drawings and works on paper by the German-America artist, commercial illustrator, and art educator. Inside the Studio will be a small sampling of the collection for visitors to enjoy. Link immigrated to the United States in September 1914 and spent years teaching, designing costumes and theater sets, as well as creating portraits of actors and dancers in New York, before moving to the West.
From 1936 to 1938, he taught art classes at Glacier National Park in Montana and at Lake Tahoe. In the 1930’s, he drew portraits of rodeo cowgirls and he developed a great interest in the West and Native American culture. In the late 1940’s, he purchased a home at Lake Tahoe where he taught art classes and created over 200 illustrations of costumes of people throughout the world for the World Book Encyclopedia. He continued to spend time at Lake Tahoe until his death in 1968.
Steven Glueckert: All Mixed Up is an overview of Glueckert’s art production from the 1970s to the present. The exhibition includes videos, handmade games, drawings, conceptual pieces, drawing machines, collages, interactive sculptures, and assemblages. Glueckert is inspired by folk and intuitive artist traditions such as the L.A. sculptor H. C. Westermann, as well as Modernists such as Montana artist Robert DeWeese, and Washington artists Harold Balasz and Edward Kienholz.
Glueckert’s art is a conduit for his concern over a host of social ills and human behaviors while likewise championing social justice and cultural values. Storytelling, in its many forms, is central to his work. From the narrative structure and emotional antics of country western ballads to accounts of local history, Glueckert emphasizes the emotional or humorous content of his subject matter.
Many other artists have contributed to this collection of work, so pay a visit to the Nicolaysen Art Museum soon!
