Sheridan — Tawni Shuler Show at Sagebrush Community Art Center
The Sagebrush Community Art Center hosts “Unraveling,” an exhibition of artwork by Tawni Shuler, which opens September 22 at the Historic Depot on 201 E. 5th St in Sheridan. An Artist’s Reception is scheduled for September 27th, from 5-7pm. The show runs through October 27th.
Shuler’s her work is inspired by memories of growing up in Wyoming and experiencing the western landscape and its life cycles. She works primarily with painting and drawing materials, in addition to mixed media, such as collected pieces of the landscape: bones, plants and dirt. Her work has shown nationally, and Shuler recently participated in the Jentel Artist Residency Program in Banner.
Shuler states, “It is the experience in the details of a place that define it, make it unforgettable and almost magical. I am inspired by memories of landscape: the life cycles of its inhabitants and plants, the drastic seasons, possessing qualities of both grittiness and frailty.”
Shuler is currently Visiting Artist at Sheridan College, where she teaches painting and drawing.

CHEYENNE: Art, Design & Dine Celebrate American Craft Week — Click here to see the feature in our Fall 2012 issue of Wyoming Lifestyle Magazine!
In a world of high tech, instant and mass produced, the hand crafted takes us back to an appreciation of “the irregular and intimate quality of things made entirely by the human hand.” (Willa Cather) Every October, crafts events and artisans around the nation are highlighted during American Craft Week. Crafts supporters can access events across the nation at their website at americancraftweek.com. Art tour organizer, originator, (and talented mixed media artist) Georgia Rowswell found out about the event last year and quickly scheduled a show for her gallery, Artful Hand Studio & Gallery in Cheyenne. “I paired Terry Kruezer with Curt Theobald, both gifted crafts people from the area. Wyoming had no representation on the American Craft Week website that year until my gallery signed up. This year will be different!” proclaims Rowswell.
Cheyenne’s Art Design & Dine will be celebrating along with the rest of the country during its regularly scheduled monthly art tour on October 11th from 5-8 pm. Tour venues are working together to provide a special evening that honors the talents of local and regional crafts people. Here is a sampling of what you can expect from female artisans during October’s art tour:
Fiber artist Christi Beckman’s show, Intersections, will be on display at Artful Hand Studio & Gallery. Artist reception will be held during Art Design & Dine on Thursday, October 11 from 5-8 PM. Additional show hours on Friday, October 12 from 5-8 PM and Saturday October 13 from 10-3 PM. Christi will be demonstrating some of her techniques on October 12 from 6-8 PM. Artful Hand Studio & Gallery is located at 302 East 1st Ave Cheyenne WY .
The Nagle Warren Mansion (located at 222 East 17th Street in Cheyenne) will be featuring four crafts women: dumpster glass by Beth Ruli; basketry by Linda Behrens; rosemaling by Diane Edwards and quilting by Cindy Paul. The show opens October 1, with an artists’ reception and rosemailing demonstration during Art Design & Dine on October 11 from 5-8. The show runs through October 27. The gallery is open during regular business hours. For further information call 307-637-3333.
In addition to these lovely women artisans, Steve Schrepferman’s ceramic sculptures will be on display at Clay Paper Scissors Gallery and Studio, located at 1506 Thomes Avenue in Cheyenne. Steve hails from Cody, Wyoming and will be on hand to talk about his work during the art tour on October 11 from 5-8 PM . The show continues until November 30. For more information and gallery hours call 307-631-6039.
Art Design & Dine is pleased to be a part of American Craft Week. “The creative sector is an important part of the vitality of any city and Cheyenne is no exception,” Georgia says. “This is a great opportunity to meet the creative forces behind the work and just enjoy a night of the arts.”
