'Either charcoal on paper or acrylic on paper, these drawings are of unfinished squares against blue, orange or white backgrounds.

Claim to River Island By Otto Knauth (Register Staff .Writer) SIOUX CITY, IA. - Claims by the Winnebago Indians that they own an island in the proposed Winnebago-Snyder Bend Missouri River recreation complex will be referred to the Iowa attorney general Monday. Jerry Jauron of Earling, Missouri River co-ordinator for the Iowa Conservation Commission, discounted the claims made by a group of about,35 Winnebago men, women and children who took over the island Friday afternoon and posted signs claiming possession. Jauron said the island, 800- acre Flowers Island, was' formed in the 1952 flood, the last ,big flood along that stretch Of the Missouri. Signs claiming the island for the State of Iowa have been posted on the island since 1965, Jauron said. The Indians Friday put up sighs saying, "Winnebago Indian Land by Virtue of Official Treaty of Mar. 8, 1865. No Trespassing." The action was precipitated painting, _ these uncompleted rectangles are drawn in a deliberately uneven manner as though, hastily tossed off as they, may well have been. An artist whose early training was in art history, criticism and philosophy, Motherwell is largely self-trained as a painter and began to paint in 1938. His "open" series, or unfinished squares if you want to be less formal about it, will strike some viewers as minimal to the point of absurdity.

A part of these sales were donated to the Mexican Credit j Union movement. art is that the artist follows his inner feelings. He writes that the abstract artists are the men "who know how to respect and follow their inner feelings, no matter how irrational or absurd they may first appear." While the "open" series may come as a tribute to Motherwell's integrity and unwillingness to compromise, it is a form of art stripped so bare and reduced to such a minimal statement that it verges on non-art. Other Displays Included in this exhibition also are about. 30 collages, a medium with which Motherwell became preoccupied in the 1950s and into which he incorporates postcards, wrapping paper, envelopes, cigarette wrappings and other common objects. He takes, for instance, an orange envelope addressed to him from Switzerland and mounts it off center against a blue background or, in another instance, a wrapping from a package of French cigarettes, and this becomes the focal point of another collage.
