Universal Language of Birds @ Ucross Foundation
Jun 10 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

UCROSS — For bird lovers and art lovers alike, Saturday will provide an opportunity to experience a combination of the two, through a series of events at the Ucross Foundation Art Gallery. 

To celebrate the opening of the exhibition “The Universal Language of Birds” by Christina Baal, a day of festivities will take place, building connections between people, art, science, birds and all of the natural world.

Events will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will include a morning talk on birding and nature journaling, and guided bird walks on the Ucross Ranch, culminating with an artist’s talk and gallery reception starting at noon.

Dr. Jackie Canterbury, President of Bighorn Audubon, will join Christina Baal to lead the day’s activities.

Inspired by Baal’s dedication to public engagement, the exhibition will also include bird-related art submitted by the local community, such as a painting by Worland artist Victoria Bales, and from the national Ucross community, such as poems by Pittsburgh poet and Ucross fellow J.C. Todd.

The community art will also be catalogued online at www.drawingtenthousandbirds.com, a website created by Baal intended to develop a community of “citizen artists.”

The following is the schedule of events:

• 9 a.m. — doors open at the Ucross Art Gallery

• 9:30-10 a.m., presentation by Baal and Canterbury, with tips on birding and nature journaling

• 10 a.m. to noon — Guided bird walks led by Baal and Canterbury, starting from Big Red 

• Noon — gallery reception begins

• 1 p.m. — Artist talk by Baal

• 3 p.m. — reception concludes

Morning participants will receive nature journals and a copies of “Recognizing 10 Common Birds of Ucross and Wyoming,” created by Baal for the event. Participants should wear weather appropriate attire and binoculars are recommended (a few will be on hand for guest use).

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

North American Indian portfolio @ The Brinton Museum
Jul 8 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 pm

BIG HORN — The Brinton Museum will presents the exhibit “Catlin’s North American Indian Portfolio: Hunting Scenes and Amusements of the Rocky Mountains and Prairies of America,” featuring 25 original, first-issue, first-edition, hand-colored lithographed plates from George Catlin’s 19th century work, published in 1844.

Born in 1796 in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, Catlin was an accomplished American painter, author and explorer who is credited as being the first great artist to travel widely among the North American Plains Indians to document in art the life and culture of the Indian peoples.

Catlin’s impressive North American Indian portfolio includes 25 detailed, exquisitely lithographed images of hunting and sporting scenes as well as Indian dance ceremonies.

A reception to open the Catlin show will take place July 8 from 3-5 p.m. This exhibit is made possible by a loan from the Thompson Family and continues in the S. K. Johnston, Jr. Family Gallery through July 30.

“We are very grateful to the Thompson Family for their willingness to share this portfolio with The Brinton Museum and our patrons. They are truly a remarkably generous family,” museum director Kenneth L. Schuster said.

“This wonderful exhibition of George Catlin American Indian lithographs offers our visitors a rare opportunity to see the work of this truly great American artist,” he added.

The Brinton Museum is located at 239 Brinton Road in Big Horn.
