Prairie: Traces is a large-scale artwork by artist Amy Uthus. It contrasts unyielding steel and fragile porcelain while harnessing and focusing the natural elements of light and time. “This piece is a beautiful twist on the ancient sundial. I’m really excited about how it works and am thrilled to be able to share it with the Des Moines community,” states the artist.
The community is invited to view the piece at the Wesley House Gallery, 2718 University Ave., Des Moines, IA, from October 9-November 5, with an opening reception Friday, Oct. 9 from 6-7:30pm and an artist talk, Thursday, Oct. 22 at 8:30pm. All events take place at the Wesley House Gallery and are free and open to the public. View more of Amy’s work at www.amyuthus.com, or follow her on facebook.
