Artists invited to submit entries for Governor’s Capitol Art Exhibition

Posted

Wyoming artists are encouraged to submit their entries for the Governor’s Capitol Art Exhibition by Nov. 30. The call for entries is available at www.callforentry.org.

The Governor’s Capitol Art Exhibition celebrates the work of Wyoming artists. The state’s five elected officials and representatives from other state agencies participating in the program select purchase award winners.

The exhibition was established in 2000 under an initiative by Gov. Jim Geringer and organized under the auspices of the Wyoming State Museum and the Wyoming Arts Council.

Works receiving purchase awards will join the Wyoming State Museum’s prestigious capitol art collection. All other artwork in the exhibition is available for sale to the general public. The Wyoming State Museum uses proceeds from these sales to add art to its permanent collection.

The juried exhibition will be on display from Feb. 20-Aug. 13, 2020, at the Wyoming State Capitol in Cheyenne. This year’s juror is ceramicist Gregory Tegarden of Alpine, Texas. Tegarden is a clayer and an assistant professor at Sul Ross State University in Alpine, where he is also program head. Inspired by a love of plants and the desert, Tegarden creates work that speaks of the environment and geological time found in the landscape around him.

The exhibit is open to artists currently working and living in Wyoming. There is no fee to enter. This program is managed by the Wyoming State Museum. Questions may be directed to Kristy Griffin, museum registrar, kristy.griffin@wyo.gov, 307-777-5426.
