Three of the Wyoming Arts Council’s Visual Arts Fellowship recipients will provide hands-on art-making workshops Saturdays in June at the University of Wyoming Art Museum in conjunction with the exhibition, “South Pass: Wyoming Arts Council Biennial 2015.”

Laramie artist June Glasson will hold a workshop, “Creating Art with Water-based Inks,” Saturday, June 13, from 3-5 p.m. Participants will explore different water-based ink techniques and will get an opportunity to work with Quink, a specialized fountain pen ink, to explore how the medium can be used to paint a variety of subjects -- landscapes, portraits, figures and more.

Cheyenne artist Do Palma will lead a workshop, “Creating Day of the Dead Mementos,” Saturday, June 20, from 3-5 p.m. Palma will give a brief overview of Mexico's exuberant and reverent Day of the Dead celebration, and lead participants in creating their own mementos with paint, fabric and embellishments.

UW Department of Art professor and Laramie artist Diana Baumbach will hold a workshop Saturday, June 27, from 3-5 p.m. Her workshop, “Exploring the communicative potential of fabric through needle felting,” will introduce basic needle felting techniques. Participants will modify found objects using the needle felting process, creating a dialogue between the handmade and the mass-produced.

Participation in the workshops is free, and materials are provided. Space is limited to 15 participants in each. To register, contact UW Art Museum Assistant Curator Rachel Clifton at (307) 766-6621 or

“South Pass: Wyoming Arts Council Biennial 2015” presents the work of six Visual Arts Fellowship recipients. They are June Glasson and Diana Baumbach, from Laramie; Do Palma, of Cheyenne; Suzanne Morlock, of Wilson; and Thomas Macker and Aaron Wallis, both of Jackson. Curated by Marjorie Vecchio, an independent curator from Reno, Nev., who served on the fellowship selection panel for two years, the exhibition explores various themes that express contemporary life in Wyoming through such diverse media as painting, printmaking, assemblage, mixed media and fiber arts.

For more information, call the Art Museum at (307) 766-6622, visit the website at, or follow the museum on Facebook and Instagram.

Through its “Museum as Classroom” approach, the UW Art Museum places art at the center of learning for all ages. Located in the Centennial Complex at 2111 Willett Drive in Laramie, the museum is open Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Admission is free.
