Wyoming Baroque concert @ Sheridan College Whitney Center for the Arts
Jun 3 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

SHERIDAN — The Whitney Center for the Arts will celebrate art and music Friday with a concert by Wyoming Baroque.

While the performers are based throughout the country, the ensemble is in residence at Sheridan College.

The story tells of a German U-boat officer named Altberg-Ehrenstein during World War I. After sinking a British freighter, the German U-boat crew finds an ancient, carved, ivory pendant on the body of a dead British sailor. One of the officers decides to keep the carving and soon after, members of the crew begin to go mad.

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.
