‘Wyoming Grasslands’ photography exhibit opening reception @ Ucross Foundation Art Gallery
May 1 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

UCROSS — The Ucross Foundation announces an upcoming exhibit called “Wyoming Grasslands” which will feature photographic work from William Sutton and Michael Berman.

The show is a collaboration between the artists, the Wyoming Chapter of The Nature Conservancy and the Buffalo Bill Center of the West’s Draper Natural History Museum.

Berman and Sutton spent three years traversing Wyoming, logging many miles in an old pickup truck and on foot. Their travels took them to public and private lands, including several properties with conservation easements held by The Nature Conservancy and time in a residence at the Ucross Foundation to capture Wyoming’s vast and beautiful landscape.

The Ucross Foundation is the first venue that will present this traveling exhibit, which will tour to 14 libraries in the state as well as the Wyoming State Museum.

The traveling exhibition, which features 41 photographs, is a smaller version of a major exhibition that will open at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody in June.

There will be a gallery reception for the show from 5:30-7:30 p.m. May 1 at the Ucross Foundation Art Gallery. It will feature an artist talk by Sutton, and Rick Pallister with The Nature Conservancy will speak about grasslands conservation.

The exhibit will be on display through June 15.

A public symposium on grasslands will take place at the gallery on May 30.

The Ucross Foundation Art Gallery is located at 30 Big Red Lane in Clearmont.
