Broadview University’s Kaye Myhre Gallery
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Librarian by Day
The Art of Campus Librarian Casey Landau
July 26th – September 23rd, 2011
Reception Wednesday August 3rd, 5-7 p.m.
Broadview University’s Kaye Myhre Gallery is happy to announce its current exhibition, Librarian by Day: The
Art of Campus Librarian Casey Landau.
The exhibition includes Landau’s work from ten series spanning the past ten years and showcases the artist’s
experimentation with a diverse variety of drawing mediums. In Landau’s most recent series, Men with Beards
(2011), sixteen intimate charcoal portraits of bearded men are accented by tiny, surprising details like a
miniature snowman folded behind an ear. In similarly surreal form, Landau’s ninety-six Free Drawings (2003-
2009) feature funny, bizarre and sometimes-poignant visual poems in pen and crayon. In her Faceless
Portraits series (2007), the artist employs a diverse mix of media, including wintergreen photocopy transfers,
stencils, pencil, and beer stains.
Guests are invited to interact with the exhibit by taking home a coloring sheet from Coloring Outside the
Kitchen: A Woman’s Place is in this Coloring Book, Landau’s zine about women’s history. Landau’s books and
zines seem a fitting contribution to the exhibition, considering her position as Broadview University’s Campus
Librarian. Many of the students at Broadview University share Landau’s interest in art, where they take courses
in graphic design, entertainment design, game art, and sequential imaging.
Casey Landau received a B.A. in Studio Art from St. Olaf College and an M.A. in Information Resources and
Library Science from the University of Arizona. She studied painting at The Art Students League in New York
City. This will be the Utah debut of her art.
The exhibition will be on view at Broadview University’s Kaye Myhre Gallery at 240 East Morris
Avenue, 3rd floor, in Salt Lake City. Hours are 9am- 6pm Mon.- Thurs., and 9am-noon Fri.
