Mystery Print Gallery in Pinedale and Clay Paper Scissors Gallery & Studio in Cheyenne invite Wyoming artists to rendezvous up and submit artwork for a juried exhibit which will be shown in two venues on opposite sides of the state. We hope that visual artists working across media and in all kinds of content, from western to political to contemporary and more will join us! As artists ourselves, we are excited to offer another venue for the public to appreciate the diversity of artwork being created in Wyoming. Both galleries show a wide range of artwork and welcome all Wyoming artists to apply. The show will be juried by gallery owners David Klarén, Camellia El-Antably and Mark Vinich.
The exhibit will run from June 8 through September 2, 2017 and will be split into two parts at the time of jurying. Half of the artwork will be on display in Pinedale and the other half in Cheyenne, with the two parts trading in mid-July. This gives people on both sides of the state a chance to see the artwork.
