Touchstone Laramie 2020 Goes Virtual

 

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, art lovers can still look forward to the much-anticipated biennial exhibition and sale, Touchstone Laramie, to take place in November as an online event. Beginning Friday, November 6 with a live Opening Reception on ZOOM from 6-8 pm, the exhibition will continue through Saturday, December 5, 2020.

With the expansion of Touchstone Laramie 2020 to a month-long event, viewers will be able to engage with artists through ZOOM Chat conversations during the opening. A series of panel discussions by the artists will be offered during the exhibition.  Video interviews, studio visits and links to individual artists websites will be posted on laramieartistsproject.org.

To register for an invitation to the ZOOM opening and receive updates and information about the artists and the exhibition, visit laramieartistsproject.org. Follow @LaramieArtistsProject on Facebook and Instagram for current news and information.

The artists participating in Touchstone Laramie this year are John Baker, Wendy Lemen Bredehoft, Mimi Fenton, Favian Hernandez, Barbara Bogart, Tessa Dallarosa, Celeste Havener, Svetlana Howe, Jim Jereb, Clay Johnson, Sarah Konrad, Lee Lane, Linda Lillegraven, Ginnie Madsen, Jon Madsen, Susan Moldenhauer, Chris Parmelee, Allison Pluda, Jon Madsen, Amy Reed, Camille Rendall, Erin Stoesz, and Aubree Wallace.

The online exhibition will present from 3 to 10 images by each artist. Viewers can visit artwork at any time during the month-long exhibition, and art will be for sale on a secured site throughout the event.

Hosted by the Laramie Artists Project, Touchstone Laramie is Albany County’s original pop-up art exhibition and sale. 2020 Chairman John Baker notes that “every other year since 2006 Albany County artists have come together to share their new artwork with our friends, family and patrons. While in the past we worked with local hotels to provide a weekend celebration, 2020 challenged us with a whole new set of concerns in order to provide a viewing experience that is fun, engaging, and safe for everyone. We look forward to welcoming our past patrons and new viewers. Thanks go to the Wyoming Arts Council, the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund, and local sponsors Coal Creek Coffee and Bruce Adams, DDS for their support!”
