As a working ranch foreman, he has seen and used the originals and is able to craft these miniatures to look like you could climb aboard. Ron has worked on ranches all his life in the rocky Mountain region, currently living in Big Piney, Wyoming. Reception TBA.
Come out for a delightful musical evening with Dave Munsick and the three-piece Little Big Band. A former New Mexico State Championship Fiddler, Dave brought his game with him when he moved to Wyoming in the early 1980s and began playing fiddle for fellow Wyomingite – the late, great, Chris Ledoux. Today he tours solo and with his bands, sharing "his brand of western truth" for all to enjoy. Broadway Theater at 7 p.m. and tickets will be go on sale in late August.
This is the Union Pacific's 150th Anniversary and what better way to celebrate but to see "the Train" through the eyes of artists. Open to Sweetwater County residents, this exhibit includes all media. This photograph by Larry Friedman is in the permanent collection on display at the CFAC.
The CFAC strives to provide a variety of art-related activities including classes and workshops for the community.
A schedule is developed for the fall, winter/spring, and summer and promoted through our webpage, Facebook page, and local newspapers. Please feel free to contact us for more information. We are also interested in finding new individuals who can teach in a number of different art techniques and styles.
Thank you for your interest in the Arts!
