For the month of November the Civic Center will be on the tour with the show Wyoming Dreams, works by Lynn Newman. Meet Lynn at the artist’s reception during the art tour on November 13th from 5-8pm “The works I’ve included in this exhibition are part of a series addressing the question: If you take away more of the subject, do you create more emotional response in an artwork? Last summer this lingering question took on added meaning when I had the opportunity to visit ancient pictograph sites in the Southwest. I was struck by the power mark making creates, even (or especially) when you don’t know what the marks means. These works take on some of these characteristics as I look for meaning in the marks I make.”

The Rotton Apple will feature artist Ross Hattel and the staff artists at Rotton Apple. Ross is a self-taught artist from Cheyenne Wyoming who currently lives in Denver Colorado. “I have always been passionate about art, but it wasn’t until about 5 years ago that I truly decided to be more productive in my artwork. I developed a passion for painting after taking a painting class in 2005 and have since rediscovered it. My art has been influenced by the study of Psychology, conveying abstract ideas, music and stream of consciousness imagination.”

The Nagle Warren will be presenting the work of Mike Beeman and his students. Mike’s interest in art began at an early age while living in Banbury, England. His neighbor, a portrait artist, sparked a fascination that has influenced him throughout his career. Painting in oils or pastels, in studio or on location, his love for a challenge takes him from figurative work to landscapes to still lifes. No matter the subject or medium, Mike is focused on capturing the light and creating a mood that will engage the viewer. His work has been selected in Pastel Journal’s top 100 competitions (2013 Silver Award for still life), the Richeson 75, and International Association of Pastel Societies’ exhibits. Mike is a signature member of the Pastel Society of America and a member of the IAPS Master Circle.
