Sublette County Artists bring home awards
May 15, 2019

Five Sublette County artists have just returned from Cheyenne, after having attended a three day long convention & art show for the Wyoming Artistsí Association. The convention was held at the new Botanical Gardens, with the theme being, of course, "Botanical". Artists from throughout Wyoming gather and enjoy 3 days of camaraderie, dining & receptions, workshops, quick draws & fundraising, and a judged art show. The group had a very successful showing and proudly represented our county. They are returning with a pile of awards.

Ann Anspach entered the most categories of the five artists, returning with the most ribbons. She received awards in the following categories: Honorable Mention (HM) in oil, 1st in Watercolor, 1st in Other (mixed media), 2nd in Acrylic, HM in Pastel, 3rd in Graphic, 3rd in Sculpture, & 1st in Pottery.

Laurie LaMereís awards are as follows: 2nd in Oil, 2nd in Pastel, 2nd in Miniature, 3rd in Abstract, & HM in Theme. She was also honored by being named the 2019 WAA Grand Wyoming Artist. Her name will be engraved on a traveling trophy, which she will have possession of until the 2020 convention.

Mckenzi Davison received: 3rd in Theme, HM in Other, & HM in Graphic.

Ruth Rawhouser was awarded: 2nd in the Governorís category, 1st in Acrylic, & 3rd in Oil.

Sharon Schell came home with ribbons for the following categories: 2nd in Theme, 2nd in Other, 2nd in Pottery, 1st in Sculpture.

It was a lot of miles to travel for the convention, but the venue was lovely and the group was rewarded for their efforts. Itís always fun reuniting with old friends and experiencing other Wyoming communities. Next yearís convention will be held the first weekend in May in Schell, Wyoming, for anyone who might be interested in joining the organization. Info for the next convention will be updated on the Wyoming Artistsí Assn Facebook page. The president for 2020 will be Pat Weiner of Greybull, Wyoming, and she can be contacted at
