CASPER — Color fills the gallery, where faces peer from portraits covering the walls almost from top to bottom. Sculptures crowd the center of the space at the Nicolaysen Art Museum. Figures wrapped in twine suspend from the ceiling, while characters made of bowling pins perch along a ledge at the top of the gallery walls. In the past year, Casper artist Jim Kopp created most of the hundreds of artworks — sculptures, assemblages and paintings — that fill the Ptasynski Gallery at the museum. His show, “Primordial Charms,” opened last month and is on display through Jan. 13. By Elysia Conner, Casper Star-Tribune. SENT: 1,300 words. AP Photos.
