The winter 2008 issue of the Wyoming Arts Council’s quarterly print newsletter, Artscapes, is off the presses.
This edition focuses on the state’s abundance of individual artists — and some of the WAC programs that assist their creative efforts. Assistant editor Linda Coatney wrote and shot the photos for the feature on Torrington in Goshen County, the “Wyoming Arts Community” for this issue. Folklorist Georgia Weir explores the history of Dutch Hop Polka and grebble-making in Goshen County. In our artist spotlight pages, we profile visual artist Michelle Farrier and singer-songwriter Michael Hurwitz, both from tiny Alta on the far side of the Tetons. On a somber note, we remember two fine Wyoming artists who passed away in 2007 — Verlane Desgrange and Robert Russin.
