June 8, 2017
Mystery Print Gallery in Pinedale, WY and Clay Paper Scissors Gallery in Cheyenne, WY are partnering to bring Rendezvous: A Juried Exhibit of Wyoming Artists to the State of Wyoming.
Gallery owners David K. Klarén (Mystery Print Gallery), and Camellia ElAntably and Mark Vinich (Clay Paper Scissors Gallery) are interested in showcasing a broad spectrum of 2 and 3 dimensional styles and mediums from a diverse group of Wyoming visual artists with a more contemporary approach to their art making practice.
Living in Wyoming, we are aware of the importance the fur trade played in opening up the west to exploration and eventually settlement. The rendezvous played an important role in the trade of beaver pelts and supplies, and allowed those who spent much of the year alone or in small groups trapping for furs, the opportunity to reconnect, exchange information, and tell tall tales. Within this context, the Rendezvous exhibit aims to bring together the artworks of Wyoming artists through a juried format, allowing the artwork, artists, and art enthusiasts to rendezvous at in Pinedale and Cheyenne during the summer of 2017.
For this exhibit, the gallerists are interested in providing a platform and showcase for often overlooked and under represented artists working outside of the more traditional expressions widely seen and accepted throughout Wyoming. This exhibit was chosen from a pool of nearly 100 entries. The 65 works included in this exhibit are representative of 31 artists from all across the great State of Wyoming. The works are exhibited simultaneously in two groupings, one each at Mystery Print Gallery in Pinedale, and Clay Paper Scissors Gallery in Cheyenne. The first showing will open with an artist reception on June 3rd from 5-8 pm, and will be on view through the middle of July at both galleries. In mid-July, the galleries will trade exhibits and re-open with a second artist reception on July 20.
This is a unique exhibition opportunity for the accepted artists, as their work is exhibited to the audiences of two dynamic communities at opposite sides of our State. The gallerists deeply appreciate all of the artists who applied for the Rendezvous exhibit. They are extremely pleased to see such diversity and quality represented in the art works submitted.
