Opening Reception: Thursday, April 26 - 5:30-7:30pm
About Cal Fulfer: Metal artist, Cal Fulfer, is a self-taught artist who has been dabbling in many different medias his whole life. "I sometimes call my art experimental because I like trying new techniques and some techniques that I have invented. I am retired and live in the Big Horn Basin and work out of my shop-Whirlwind Studios-south of Worland. Why I create art is a mystery to me - I can't not create some art. My 'style' is straightforward. Inspiration comes from what's in front of me. I'm happy if someone is entertained by what I'm making. I learned the technique of the molten copper work by watching a YouTube video and from another friend who tutored me a bit. Wyoming junipers inspired part of this art."
About Pam Greek: Ceramic artist, Pam Greek, has loved creating art from a very young age. "From the moment I held a crayon and scribbled on the living room wall, I knew I wanted art to be a part of my life. There is no explaining why...there is just the urge to create, to make symbols and images that visually express my life experiences. After receiving my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Education from Wayne State College, Nebraska, I taught in that state for a year before moving to Wyoming in 1998. As a certified K-12 art teacher, I have dabbled in almost every available media. Still, I am attracted to fire, so ceramics and glass are my favorite materials. I love Wyoming's scenery and being outdoors, so I often bring along pastels when camping or to other outings. While hiking, I collect bits of wood, rocks, and other treasures for inspiration and inclusion in my work. I love Wyoming's wide open and wild places, and this inspires a good share of my artwork, which ranges from moderately realistic landscapes to stylized 'outdoor' themes to completely abstract images. While I do enjoy a wide range of media, ceramics, glass, and pastels are my favorites."
