"Beats of the Heart" exhibit opens Jan. 17 at Casper College Goodstein Gallery

The next show at the Casper College Goodstein Gallery will be “Beats of the Heart,” featuring video art and photography by artist E.K. Wimmer. The show will run from Tuesday, Jan. 17 through Thursday, Feb. 2, 2012, with an artist’s talk held that same day.

“There is a fascinating moment between life and death; a brief second where one is both alive and dead in equal parts,” said Wimmer. “’Beats of the Heart’ captures the transition from life to death through the use of video art and photography. The idea is further expressed through the Japanese art form known as Butoh,” he noted.

Wimmer, who was born in New York but spent his early years in New Mexico, moved to Casper in 2009 with multi-media artist wife, Maria Rose. Wimmer’s work is no stranger to Casper art audiences with his work exhibited at The Corridor Gallery both as a solo artist and in a duel show with his wife. In addition he has exhibited at the Nicolaysen Art Gallery, and was part of the 2011 Holiday Home Tour with his work “Ghost of Christmas Past.”

Wimmer will present an artist’s talk at the Goodstein Visual Arts Center beginning at noon on February 2 in Room 102. Both the talk and exhibit are free and open to the public. The Goodstein Gallery is open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
