Jenny Reeves-Johnson honored at Govenor's Art Exhibit with Thirteen Red Canyon Chukars

The 2024 Governor’s Capitol Art Exhibition opens in the Capitol Gallery at the Wyoming State Capitol on Friday, February 9. The Governor’s Capitol Art Exhibition is a biennial survey of contemporary Wyoming artists with work selected from an open call. The exhibition is organized by the Wyoming State Museum and Wyoming Arts Council.

Artists in the exhibition will be honored at the public reception and awards ceremony on February 16. Works receiving purchase awards, the Governor’s Choice Award, Juror’s Choice Award, and People’s Choice Award, will be announced during the reception. The exhibition will be on display through August 10.

This year’s exhibit features 50 works by 46 artists. Juror Terri Porta selected the work from over 350 submissions. Terri Porta is a multidisciplinary artist, place-maker, activist, and community advocate for the arts based in Billings, MT. Her work at the intersection of creativity and mental health care led to her selection as the first Artist in Residence for Billings through the Mobilize the Magic City project, which received a National Endowment for the Arts grant. 

The Wyoming State Museum purchases several works from the exhibition for its collections. These works are preserved for future generations as a record of the artists working in Wyoming today. Works purchased for the Capitol Art Collection are displayed in public offices of state agencies.

All works in the exhibition are also for sale to the public. Beginning on February 9th, purchases can be made through the Wyoming State Museum’s website or in person at the Museum. Purchased works will be available for pickup after the show closes on August 10th.
