The Wyoming Arts Council’s Biennial Fellowship Exhibition offers Wyoming residents and visitors the opportunity to view outstanding artwork created by the Wyoming artists who were selected as Visual Arts Fellowship recipients. The exhibition is hosted by major arts venues around the state and rotates on a two year cycle.

Artwork for the exhibition is selected by an out of state curator who has served as a fellowship juror for both years. The juror is tasked with conducting studio visits with each artist, selecting artwork for the exhibition, working with the hosting venue, and contributing an essay to the corresponding exhibition catalog. The exhibition catalog also features the artwork of the Honorable Mention artists from the previous two years. This year’s curator is Ruth Bruno, Public Art Program Manager with Colorado Creative Industries.

The artists included in this year’s Biennial Fellowship Exhibition are: Patrick Kikut (Laramie), Margaret K. Haydon (Laramie), Robert Martinez (Riverton), Joe Arnold (Laramie), Elaine Henry (Big Horn), and Andy Kincaid (Wilson).

Artists who received Honorable Mentions are: Ashley Hope Carlisle (Laramie), Andy Kincaid (Wilson), Rani Robison (Laramie), Brittney Denham (Sheridan), Sonja Caywood (Dayton), and Wendell Field (Jackson).
