Round Up the Dogies- We're headed for Cheyenne


It's time again for the Wyoming Plein Air Event that attracts painters from all over the country, and this year even some from abroad. Artists in Europe are coming to paint the big west and it doesn't get any bigger than in Wyoming.
Sue McCullough and I will spend a week painting the Snowy Mountains, Laramie, Cheyenne and everything will wrap up with a Quick Draw Saturday morning, August 14th, followed by a live auction. That afternoon the show will open at 2 Galleries in Cheyenne: the Link Gallery and the Deselms Gallery- within walking distance of each other.
If you are within 200 miles, this is an event worth taking in. Make a day of it in old town Cheyenne beginning with the Quick Draw at 8:30 on Depot Plaza, and afterwards bid on work you saw painted; then take in the entire show beginning at 4pm. There will be food, the artists on hand, awards and a round up of great plein air work.
Now I have to go make sure I packed my cowboy boots and those spurs I save for special occasions.
