Rangeland restoration lecture set for May 4 @ Sheridan College Science Building / Mohns Center
May 4 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan College Museum of Discovery will host the next presentation in its science lecture series May 4 beginning at 7 p.m.

The lecture is free and open to the public and will be held at the Sheridan College Science Museum/Mohns Center.

Brian Mealor will give the presentation. Mealor is the director of the University of Wyoming’s Research and Extension Center in Sheridan and associate professor in the Department of Plant Sciences. His work focuses primarily on restoring rangeland ecosystems negatively impacted by invasive plants.

Mealor will discuss how rangeland ecosystems are impacted by a variety of stressors that affect their structure and function — altered fire regimes, climate variability, mismanaged grazing and changes in management practices. Invasive plants may be facilitated by these stressors or they may induce systemic changes that lead to further alteration of ecosystems. This presentation will emphasize the connection between basic and applied research and discuss how an increased understanding of the biology and ecology of invasive plants leads to improved management at local and landscape-scales.

Sheridan College is located at 3059 Coffeen Ave.

Ucross hosting new art exhibit @ Ucross Foundation Art Gallery
May 7 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

UCROSS — A new exhibition, (We)st Maria Rose & E.K. Wimmer, opened at the Ucross Foundation Art Gallery on Monday.

The multidisciplinary exhibit features 20 paintings by Maria Rose, along with photographs, collages and video by Wimmer, representing 20 years of relationship between the two artists.

As they state, “(We)st follows the trajectory of two lives intertwined, exploring different perspectives on shared experiences. Measuring the course of our relationship over two decades and four Western states: New Mexico, Colorado, Montana and Wyoming…the art reflects the highs and lows of a shared life: marriage, education, children, loss, growth and change.”

A reception for the artists will take place May 7 from 4-6 p.m. The event, which is open to the public at no charge, will include a gallery talk by Maria Rose and Wimmer at 4:15 p.m. The talk will be followed by music performed by a string trio affiliated with the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra.

The exhibition will be on display through June 10 and is supported in part by a grant from the Wyoming Arts Council, through funding from the Wyoming State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts. Award-winning Wyoming writer Nina McConigley, author of Cowboys and East Indians, has written the exhibition essay.

The Ucross Foundation Art Gallery is located ½ mile east of the intersection of Highways 14 and 16 East in Ucross.
