A pair of exhibits by Thomas Moran are on display through Aug. 16 at the University of Wyoming Art Museum.
Moran, who spent much time in the Wyoming Territory during the 1870s, frequently traveled to the Green River area and completed many of his sketches and watercolors of the region's topography.
One of the exhibits, "Thomas Moran in Wyoming," features watercolor sketches, drawings and prints of Wyoming that convey the various forms of producing images for publication at the time.
The other exhibit, "Thomas Moran: Pastoral Views and Seashores," explores the etchings made of the seashore and the sea from Moran's time on Long Island and in the East Hamptons of New York.
