Two selected for Governor's Capital Art Exhibition and Sale

 

Two local artists are being featured in the 2017 Governor's Capitol Art Exhibition and Sale at the Wyoming State Museum in January. "Waiting Dancer" is the entry contributed by Jeb Schenck for the art exhibit. His photo of the Swinging Bridge and Monument Hill was shared with the Independent Record, but will not be part of the exhibition. We were not able to make contact with Debbie Stroppel, the other local photographer being featured at the event.

Two local artists will be featured in the 2017 Governor's Capitol Art Exhibition and Sale at the Wyoming State Museum beginning in January.

Seventy works of art from 60 Wyoming artists will be featured in the show, including local photographers Jeb Schenck and Debbie Stroppel.

A Purchase Award Reception is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 9, from 5 – 7 p.m. where artwork included in the show will be available for purchase by the public.

The juried exhibition, now in its 17th year, was established under an initiative by Governor Jim Geringer and organized under the auspices of the Wyoming State Museum and the Wyoming Arts Council.

The Governor's Capitol Art Exhibition forms a collection of original Wyoming regional art for display in state offices. Works receiving Purchase Awards join the growing collection of prestigious art.

The state's five elected officials and representatives from other state agencies participating in the program select the Purchase Award winners.

If you would like to view the artwork, it will be on display through March 4 at the Wyoming State Museum in the Barrett Building, 2301 Central Avenue in Cheyenne.
