The title may be a bit premature, but it sure feels like summer around here! Our May 2017 residents are out and about, taking in nature and all that Brush Creek Ranch has to offer. A few, like Richard Kattman (visual artist shown above), are even working outside because the weather and feel of sunshine is just too good to pass up! Here is to another gorgeous summer, right around the corner. For more on our May residents, head over to “Our Residents” page.
We cannot say enough wonderful things about our residents who generously contribute their time, knowledge and material each month for the BCFA community outreach program that we call, “Brush Creek Presents”. Winter months are the time for this program to travel with our residents and their presentations to the schools around The Platte Valley in Carbon County. This includes the Saratoga and Encampment schools. Presentations are always unique, informative, engaging and saturated with all of the talent and passion these accomplished artists possess. Students, teachers and residents benefit from these engagements in many ways. The exposure to all forms of art in the education system has proven to be beneficial to students and their development. The curiosity of the children during this time turns in to a sparkle in their eye when the words or imagery of an artist strikes their interest or passion. The possibilities of impact and inspiration for the students are limitless and we are grateful to be a part of it. Thank you to the schools for allowing us to share and thank you to these fine artists for their contributions.
2017 March Residents of BCFA bring their work and knowledge to The Encampment K-12 School
Brrr!! Winter storms encompassed The Platte Valley and many parts of Wyoming over the last week. BCFA staff charged through the challenge to keep the departing February residents and arriving March residents safe in their travels and settled in at their respective destinations.
We were sad to say goodbye to another incredible group from February. Now that our monthly transition is complete, we would like to proudly introduce the newest residents of BCFA. Here are the eight, enthusiastic creatives of March 2017!
