Stained Glass at Cheyenne Botanic Gardens
This piece of stained glass from the annual Glass Art show at the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens caught my eye for two reasons: the unique frame and the background. I loved the way the piece was highlighted against the beauty of the Grand Conservatory.

Glass Art Show Cheyenne Botanic Gardens
One of the interesting things about the Glass Art show at the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens is that many of the pieces are displayed in windows, giving visitors a view of not only the art itself but also the exterior of the gardens.

These pieces, which are hanging in the second floor classroom, have a less-than-spectacular but highly necessary background: the maintenance part of the gardens.

Wednesday in Wyoming - February 6, 2019


One of the annual events in Cheyenne is the Glass Art Show at the Botanic Gardens. In the past, I've been impressed with both the beauty of the pieces and the variety of techniques the artists use, and this year was no exception.

I particularly liked this portrait of a hummingbird. Not only did it remind me of the hummers that frequent my backyard every summer, but the sparkling mosaic-style background caught my eye.
