Our wonderful little gallery is putting on an art fair. We’ve never taken on anything this big before but we’re pretty excited. The wind here has been blowing 40mph with stronger gusts and it’s just been miserable. We’re inviting the community to come in out of the wind and surround themselves with colorful art, have lunch, do a little shopping, a little bidding, and learn more about the artists right here on their own turf!
So if you, my loyal blog readers, are interested in coming out and supporting us, you will be welcomed with open arms!! It takes about 3 days to travel to here by car from the eastern side of the U.S. More like two days drive from the Southwest I think. 🙂 Time for a road trip!
I took this image and had it printed on maple wood. I wasn’t sure what to expect and when I got it back from the lab, I wasn’t wowed like I had hoped to be. But a great friend and local frame-maker helped create a beautiful frame out of oak to surround this lovely image. I can’t wait to have it on display. It was pretty costly and I’m not sure if I’ll ever do it again. I’ll just have to see the feedback I get from folks when it’s out there upon judging eyes.
If you check out our Facebook page, you will get a glimpse of the many different mediums that will be on display. And that’s not even the half of it.
I hope to see ALL of you out here in Wonderful Wheatland Wyoming for a lovely weekend of art and entertainment.
Got the worm.
I was early to the Gilchrist Gallery today to fulfill my second work day of the month and it has been a good one so far. As soon as I got here I sold a set of my postcards and an hour later sold another set as well as works from 2 other artists in the gallery. I’ve had some delightful visitors traveling from Wisconsin, South Dakota, and Colorado. I hope the rest of the day continues like this.
Happy Saturday my friends!
I’m so happy to announce the arrival of www.gilchriststreetgallery.com .
I’ve been building a website for our local gallery for a couple of weeks now. Remember that I am a photographer, not a webmaster, and it’s been a little tough going so don’t be too harsh in your judgements. I’m still working out the kinks and image placement but I have to say that I am quite proud of the site and of our local artists.
We will have an artists reception on Thursday, July 14th from 1pm to 4pm to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. And you are invited! There will be refreshments, door prizes, and you will have the opportunity to meet most, if not all, of the artists with work displayed here. We will be so delighted to see you if you have time to stop by.
I’m excited to have some new prints hanging in the gallery and will have Wyoming postcards arriving from the printer tomorrow!
I haven’t had this image on the blog but here it is framed and ready to hang on your wall. It is the old abandoned Grainery in Chugwater, WY.
And this fellow has been begging for a frame and wall space.
And of course, our favorite. I’ve printed, framed, and numbered Daybreak.
They are all 11×14 prints, matted and framed as 16×20. I’m in love with them and hope they will eventually have a good home. Now, these quick shots do not do them justice. They look so spiffy behind glass and you’ll just have to come down to check them out in person. Or place an order with me. You will not be disappointed!
I hope to see you at the gallery but if you can’t come, I will post pictures of the event so you won’t miss a thing.

The presence of the Blackeyed Susan means we are in the heart of summer. She’s wild and tall and scattered all over the mountain sides and throughout the meadows.
While she’s busy growing wild and free, I’ve been busy with printing and framing some favorites to hang in the Gilchrist Gallery. We are going to celebrate our one year anniversary next Thursday with a gallery tour, refreshments, and a raffle. I’ll provide more details on that soon. We would love for you to come downtown and meet the artists and enjoy all types of beautiful art by local artists. More exciting news about our gallery coming soon. Stay tuned!
