Reception for Aaron Wuerker @ Sagebrush Community Art Center
Mar 6 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

SHERIDAN — An artist reception for Buffalo artist Aaron Wuerker will be held on Friday March 6 from 5-7 p.m. at the Sagebrush Community Art Center.

Wuerker’s show, “Aaron Wuerker: Recent Landscapes,” will be on display through March 31 in the center’s Invitational Gallery.

Wuerker earned a bachelor’s in fine arts from Kansas City Art Institute in 1992 and a master’s in fine arts from Yale University in 1995. He and his wife, Jenny, also a renowned artist, own the Crazy Woman Fine Art Gallery in Buffalo.

“My work has continually returned to a realist vision of the landscape,” Wuerker said. “I’m usually drawn to compositions where mechanized forms either mimic or contrast with the natural forms in the land.”

“Vietnam underground: The Viet Cong, spelunkers and the biggest cave on earth” presentation by National Geographic writer Mark Jenkins @ Sheridan Junior High School Early Auditorium
Mar 11 @ 7:00 pm

SHERIDAN — The University of Wyoming World to Wyoming lecture series will feature Mark Jenkins at 7 p.m. March 11 at the Sheridan Junior High School Early Auditorium.

Jenkins, from National Geographic writer and UW, will present “Vietnam underground: The Viet Cong, spelunkers and the biggest cave on earth.”

Hidden deep in the jungles of central Vietnam, on the edge of the Truong Son Mountains, is a network of massive caves. Created by underground rivers cutting their way through limestone, most of these caves remain unexplored. In the past two decades, a highly accomplished team of British spelunkers have been penetrating ever deeper into these gigantic caverns.

Jenkins was invited on an expedition to descend into what would turn out to be the largest cave ever discovered, Hang Son Doong. Exploring this cave was so treacherous and difficult the team actually lived underground for days to complete the first descent.

In his presentation, Jenkins will take the audience across Vietnam — a vibrant country finally thriving after decades of war — and into the dark belly of the earth.

The event is free and open to the public.
