Open House for “Elemental Earth: Artisans and Nature” Set for April 13
An open house for the Werner Wildlife Museum’s newest exhibit, “Elemental Earth: Artisans and Nature” will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 13. The open house is free and open to the public.
According to India Hayford, museum assistant, the exhibit features “contemporary crafts celebrating life in Wyoming.” The show features the works of Wyoming artisans who work with natural materials including, but not limited to: fiber, leather, bone, horn, wood, stone, gems, and metal.
Excluded from the exhibit are paintings, photographs, and any items which incorporate more than five percent human-made materials, according to Ms. Hayford.
The Casper Needle Guild, a local chapter of Embroiderers Guild of America, will also be on hand to demonstrate various types of needlework. Stitchers are welcome to bring their own handwork and join the stitching circle in the Africa-Arctic Room during the open house, said Ms. Hayford.
Refreshments will be served during the open house at the Werner Wildlife Museum, located off the Casper College campus at 405 E. 15th Street. The exhibit will remain on display through Thursday, July 13. The museum is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
