Byron Anway – Landscape and Memory | Assurity Life Insurance

January 26, 2024 - April 12, 2024

“My artwork incorporates personal stories and contemporary historical events to understand the world.  In that way, my practice closely mimics the study of Epistemology.  I try to understand the differences between opinion and knowledge.  I draw from memory and imagination to tell emotionally authentic and personal coming of age stories.  Whether showing a disparate world full of kinetic human energy or an introspective abstraction with space for deep thinking, these new works draw on themes of spirituality, cultural relativism, and adventure.”

Byron Anway is an Assistant Professor of Practice at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln in the School of Art, Art History, and Design.  Anway previously taught art abroad at the International School of Brussels in Belgium and American Academy Casablanca in Morocco.  Among other venues, his work has been exhibited at the Joslyn Art Museum (Omaha, NE), Manifest Gallery (Cincinnati, OH), and the Soo Visual Arts Center (Minneapolis, MN). His work has been published twice in New American Paintings the West, Manifest’s International Painting Annual, and the Prairie Schooner.

‘Landscape and Memory’ will be on view at Assurity Life Insurance from January 26th – April 12th.
