Exhibition Description

This exhibition is a survey of works by the late Gladys M Lux. Her grandmother began her art education by teaching her china painting, and she also learned to paint in watercolors and draw. After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Nebraska, Ms. Lux began teaching art at Nebraska Wesleyan University in Lincoln, Nebraska, in 1927. During the forty years she taught at Nebraska Wesleyan University, she inspired many students to believe as she did that “there is an artist in everyone.”
 

Talented as both an artist and educator, her collection of over 450 prints is on view year-round to continue its initial purpose of bringing world-class art to the people of Nebraska. The LUX Print Gallery is located on the second floor of the Lux Center for the Arts. Please join us for a conversation with the collection curator Susan Soriente. We will also be hosting a reunion of anyone whose life has been impacted by Gladys or her legacy. 

 

Curator Statement

As expressed in the title, this curated selection pulled from hundreds of pieces created during her extended art career features subjects of flora, fauna, and family. These pieces depict the spirit of Nebraska through the lens of the middle class. Although she created some works almost a century ago, the message of beauty and community remains timeless.
