ART IN WY: Sheridan, Cheyenne, Casper, Lander, Laramie



The SAGE Exhibit Gallery features lifelong Sheridan area resident Dean States, whose exquisite colored pencil drawings will be exhibited during his “Seven Years Plus” show, which runs March 1st-31st.  An artist’s reception and gallery talk will be held March 13 at the Main Street SAGE Exhibit Gallery (at Sheridan College’s Main Street location), 171 N. Main, in Sheridan, WY.  As always, the public is invited and refreshments will be served.

More of States’ work can be seen at Dean States Studio, located at 637 W. Loucks in Sheridan.

Jenny Wuerker


The Sagebrush Art Center’s Invitational Gallery hosts Buffalo, WY artist Jenny Wuerker’s exhibition, “Painting the Expanse,” March 10- April 12, 2014.  The reception and artist’s talk will be Friday, March 14th, from 5-7pm at the Art Center’s front gallery, located in the Historic Trail Depot (201 E. 5th Street) in Sheridan, Wyoming.  The public is welcome and refreshments will be available.  Wuerker says of her work, “I paint the expanse of the West, the iconic American landscape. Painting on large canvases, immersed in the elements, and battling the occasional rattlesnake is like the X-Sport of landscape painting. When I’m standing out in the landscape, the subject of my work is as much the act of painting outdoors as it is the landscape depicted.”

Sagebrush Gallery Hours are Monday-Saturday, 10-5pm.

This project is supported in part by a grant from the Wyoming Arts Council, through funding from the Wyoming State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.
