This portfolio of etchings by William Wegman imagines scenes from the historic Lewis and Clark expedition. Wegman combines personal experience with broader cultural tropes to depict a natural landscape that feels both specific and universal. For this group of works, Wegman creates stories of fishing and cooking in the etchings, along with several that include collage.
The Lewis & Clark Fishing and Cooking Expedition was first exhibited in the 2002 show William Wegman: Indian in the Refrigerator and other printed works at Printed Matter in New York. The etchings were also included in the 2012 exhibition exhibition William Wegman: Hello Nature at the Bowdoin Museum of Art Maine, that traveled thereafter to Sweden in 2013. The portfolio is available for the first time as individual artworks at Picture Room.
William Wegman, b. 1943, Holyoke, Massachusetts, works in various mediums including painting, drawing, video, and photography. Wegman lives and works in New York and Maine.
