My work is at Glen Garrett’s Architect Studio-Office & Hynds Building

Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

Glen does such a nice job with the window displays.  I know I’m really late with posting this since the reception is already over.  Last year, March, I had an Emergency Solo Show at Glen’s (read why here).  Glen has been collecting my work for years.  He can almost have an entire show of my ceramics that he personally owns.  The show is part of the Art, Design and Dine, Art walk, that my friend Georgia Roswell has started for Cheyenne.

So if you’re in the area and want to see my work during business hours…go to Glen’s!

1623 Capitol Ave.

Glen is almost single handedly bringing the arts to Cheyenne.  He is tirelessly spending all of his time raising money and restoring the Hynds Building, which has been empty for over 25 years.  He is trying to make the Hynds Building into an Artist-in-Residency program, offering programs to the University of Wyoming, Laramie County Community College and to high students in our area.  Anyhow, we are lucky that Cheyenne has such a huge art supporter.  And I am so lucky to have Glen as an art support also.  Thank You Glen, for everything you do!!!

The Hynds Building opened to acclaim in 1920 was Cheyenne’s premier office building for the next sixty years.

Art Design and Dine058

Yesterday was the premier of Art, Design and Dine, in Cheyenne.  My friend Architect Glen Garrett, (a huge art supporter), became a sponsor of the new event.   Glen has made his architect studio-office into a gallery for local artists.  But he didn’t realize Art, Design and Dine was a gallery walk until the two days before the event.  He emailed Wednesday me asking if I could bring 11 to 12 pieces to the gallery on Thursday, for the gallery walk on Friday.  I ran down dropped off a bunch of artwork.  Glen works really fast here called Sign Pro had them throw up vinyl lettering and set up the show.  I wondered how things were going to look because he didn’t have enough pedestals.  He made great hangers for the bowls hung them on the wall.  For such a quick show it really looked nice.  Here are some pictures.  Thanks Glen for all your hard work!!
