The following performances and events are made possible by the generosity of the City of Rock Springs, Sweetwater BOCES, and the Wyoming Arts Council.
To honor the Luana’s family heritage, the show is entitled “Narava”, the Slovenian word for “Nature.” Watercolors, acrylics and mixed mediums from a variety of natural scenes are featured. “This is a culmination of creations spanning many years, which may explain the variety of painting styles," said Luana. “I hope the public enjoys the exhibit as much as I enjoyed producing it!”
Each year a different theme is inspiration for local artists to create their images. Open to all medium, a prospectus is available to give the details. Deadline to enter is September 29th. This year, the exhibit is in coordination with the Sweetwater County Historical Museum’s special program “Crossroads: Change in Rural America.”
Former school district art teacher and artist Robert Gutierrez will display several leather and beading items and paintings while his brother David will exhibit a series of photographs of a local landmark, the Reliance Tipple. David is a graphic artist and longtime educator having taught at the Rock Springs High School and Western Wyoming Community College. Opening reception is November 3rd at 5 pm.
