My photography was a part of the Works of Wyoming Member show. The opening was Friday January 21, from 6-8 pm. There was a live harpist a large variety of work. The show will be up until February 18 and the gallery hours are 1-5pm, Monday – Friday.
I am currently a senior studying Graphic Design and Art at University of Wyoming. From the time I was a little girl I have wanted to be an artist and am happy to say that this dream is coming true, and the details are falling into place. One of my main goals is to use my art to help, and work with, people. I have had the opportunity to give private art lessons to kids as well as working with an art therapist. Both of these experiences have given me the opportunity to see the power that art has on an individual.
In this series, I took photographs of Laramie’s downtown. I took several images in and around the Connor Apartments, the Laramie Plains Civic Center, and other buildings. This is just a small sample of these photographs. Living in the Connor has opened my eyes to the beauty and intrigue of old architecture. There are many stereotypes that a town or area may possess and one of my goals for this project is to encourage people to look around these old buildings, and Laramie, and see this new beauty rather than relying on their old pre judgments and expectations.
