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.
