Its hard to believe summer is coming to an end and what a busy one it has been! After being gone for the past 3 Artwalks, I am looking forward to being in the studio for the September Cheyenne Artwalk. I will be featuring Dave's Rawhide Studio jewelry. He has several new designs fresh off the laser at the 307 Makerspace on the Wind River Reservation that you will want to see! Also I plan to be back in the studio this month to complete some of the small fiber art landscapes I started before the summer flurry began. See you at the Artwalk.
Wanda J Sanders-Miller will be demonstrating her watercolor techniques during the May 9th Cheyenne Artwalk from 5-8pm. Wanda is the third artist to display in the PUMP series. Hope to see Thursday!
Georgia Rowswell's studio at Blue Door Arts will be featuring PUMP artist, Tara Pappas during the April 11th Cheyenne Artwalk from 5-8pm. Tara states "There are stories all around us—both those that have been told time and time again, and those that have yet to gain a voice. The focus of my artwork is on the latter." Tara is currently working on giving voice to her first illustrated children's book. She will be sharing the interesting way she is doing this through the Patreon crowd sourcing site and demonstrating how she creates her unique artwork. Blue Door Arts is located at 1608 Capitol Ave in the Historic Hynds building. See you there!
Sawing, cutting, hammering and arranging elements all to tell a personal story.

Here is a peek into the process and projects.
