Entries are now being sought for the Werner Wildlife Museum’s next art show titled “Wellspring.”

“Since the spring 2020 artisan show fell victim to the pandemic shutdown, this fall’s annual show, titled “Wellspring,” will include two entry categories,” said India Hayford. The first category, “Wellspring I,” is open to Wyoming artists who work with natural materials, including but not limited to fiber, leather, bone, horn, wood, stone, clay, gems, and metal. “Items which incorporate more than 15% of man-made materials are excluded from the exhibit, as are paintings, photographs, and similar fine art pieces,” said Ms. Hayford, museum assistant at the Werner.

The second category, “Wellspring II,” is open to artists working in any medium, but in keeping with the theme of wilderness, images featuring humans, domestic animals, feral animals, or trappings of civilization will not be accepted.

The juried exhibition is open to all Wyoming residents, and students, and employees of Casper College. The deadline for entries is Thursday, Nov. 5, at 4 p.m. The show will open Thursday, Nov. 12, with an open house from 4-6 p.m. The show will close Wednesday, Feb. 3, 2021.

Entry forms and guidelines can be obtained by calling 307-235-2108, emailing indiahayford@caspercollege.edu, or stopping by the museum. Located at 405 East 15th Street, the Werner Wildlife Museum is free and open to the public Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
