Utah’s Kate MacLeod is just one of the many talented performers and groups presenting showcases at the Wyoming Arts Conference in Jackson.

The Wyoming Arts Conference Oct. 12-14 in Jackson will feature showcases by 24 talented performers and visual artists from Wyoming and throughout the region.

In a showcase, an individual artist or group takes the stage for 10 minutes to present their work to conference attendees, many of whom represent arts councils and facilities that regularly book artistic talent for their communities.
