"A Diamond in the Rough" theme for annual Wyoming Artists Association conference

The upcoming Wyoming Artists Association Annual Convention will be held at the Sublette County Ice Arena in Pinedale April 29-May 1. This convention features an art exhibit at the Pinedale Ice Arena and a quick draw at the Museum of the Mountain Man. Both are open to the public.

The theme for this year’s convention is "A Diamond in the Rough". Workshops and demonstrations on the creative process and different art media are available to WAA members. These will also be held at the Ice Arena. Memberships are available at the door for only $20. A luncheon and banquet with entertainment are also available with pre-registration by April 15. For more information about the Wyoming Artists Association or to pre-register, call Ron Gregory, WAA Treasurer, at 307-856-7574.

The Quick draw is always fun to watch, and will be held from 6:30-7:30 PM ON Friday night at the Museum of the Mountain Man. Artists will have one hour to complete their work, which is a subject and medium of the artist’s choice. Subject matter might be still lift, model, sketches or reference photos. After completing their piece, they have 15 minutes to sign and frame it. Quick Draw pieces will then be taken to the auction area, which starts at 7:45 pm. Proceeds from the Quick Draw auction are split 50-50 with the Wyoming Artists Association and the artist.
