Only one week remains for Wyoming artists to submit images for consideration to be included in a traveling exhibition organized by the University of Wyoming Art Museum. The DEADLINE is Thursday, October 22. Details are below in the official Call for Wyoming Artists.
The University of Wyoming Art Museum is pleased to accept submissions by Wyoming artists for its Touring Exhibition Service. For more than 25 years, the Art Museum has circulated exhibitions of original art throughout Wyoming. Whether from the museum’s collection or borrowed from artists, these exhibitions are available to libraries, schools, community centers, galleries, and museums statewide.
We are pleased to feature a selection of up to twenty Wyoming based artists in a new exhibition to tour through the Touring Exhibition Service. In addition, the Art Museum will be creating educational tools and information online for use by K-12 teachers. This is a wonderful opportunity to have your work seen and studied in a variety of Wyoming communities by the public and school groups. We anticipate a three-year tour which will visit at least five communities annually.
Please submit for consideration three images of your artwork, a brief artist’s statement, and resume by October 22, 2009 to:
