The Niedermeyer Experiment
On Dec. 1 from 5-8 p.m., 10 artists from the University of Missouri
will take over the historic Neidermeyer Apartments to host a pop-up show of their recent work. The show will be open to the public for one night only. The participating artists include: Clayton Jezewak, Nan Jang, Nikos Karabetsos, Madeleine LeMieux, Colleen Smith, Zachary Nutt, Ashlee Slack, Rebecca Weaver, Brandi Ynocencio, and Guigen Zha. Refreshments will be served and the artists will be available to answer any questions.
This group came up with the idea to produce a show of their own work from this fall. All are at different states in their career, from BFA students who are just beginning their practice to artists in their final year of the MFA program who are getting ready to write their thesis. The artists work in different ways ranging from minimalist to fully representational paintings.
These artists are students in Anna Wehrwein’s Advanced Painting Seminar class, a mixed level class at the University of Missouri. The students have been actively working together, critiquing each other’s work, and planning this exhibition throughout the semester. The show has given the artists an opportunity to work together and to share ideas with one another, which is sure to make for an interesting exhibition.
