The Biennial fellowship exhibition showcased outstanding artwork created by Wyoming Artists selected as visual arts fellowship recipients. The work was unique, beautiful and thought provoking. The fiber art of Georgia Rowswell was exquisite, a must see.

Great collection of art worth stopping by to see. Featured artists displaying their art. The entrance fee is $5.00. There is also a discovery area that I didn't have time to see but I bet it's fun for the kids!

I'd have to say they had an overabundance of "modern" art. Of course art is completely subjective but a lot of that type of thing doesn't pique my interest. They did have some pieces that were fantastic so it's definitely worth paying a visit.
