WAC board member and artist Richard Olveda sends this news from Douglas:
RomArt Gallery, 203 Center St., in downtown Douglas, will celebrate its grand opening on Monday, April 7, 5-7 p.m., with works by nine local painters, photographers and potters.
Gallery owner and artist Rom Hinz said the city has been without an art gallery for eight years. “I hope this gallery of locally produced art will help awaken the arts impulse in Douglas and begin building our city’s culture beyond being a bedroom community for Wyoming’s extractive industries.” he said.
The show features work ranging from realistic and functional to abstract and surreal. Featured artists include Sonia Sieg, Linda Butler, Diane Harrop, Jeanne Chamberlain, Max Cox, Ron Miles, Rick Kilmer, Dave Thompson and Rom Hinz.
Normal operating hours of the RomArt Gallery will be 4-7 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m.-noon on Saturdays.
