From the Lander Art Center web site:
The Lander Art Center is pleased to present “A Portrait of Wyoming” a collaborative art project by The Wyoming Art Party featuring the work of 38 Wyoming artists, writers and craft folk. This traveling exhibition will open its Lander showing onFriday, May 22 from 6-8pm at the Lander Art Center. This reception is free and open to the public.
The Wyoming Art Party is an organization started by two local Laramie artists, June Glasson and Meg Thompson, whose mission is to organize art projects and shows that connect individuals, scattered throughout Wyoming, who work in different regions, disciplines (fine arts, writing, music, craft) and from different backgrounds, with the aim of creating work that truly represents art in Wyoming as it is, rather than as it is thought to be.
For this show the participants where invited to create a “Portrait of Wyoming” in whatever medium they chose. They were then paired with another artist whom they would trade pieces with and finish each other’s piece. The aim was to connect individuals from across the state who don’t usually work together and to encourage artists to create something outside their day to day work. The heart of this project is collaboration.
Exhibition on display from May 22 – July 4, 2015.
