For AMV’s Minerva Teichert Fans

Announcing the Minerva Teichert Invitational Show, August 15-16, in Cokeville, Wyoming. Cokeville is Minerva’s hometown.

Wyoming artist Charles Dayton, the show’s organizer as well as one of its participating artists, says, “We have been able to exhibit 20-30 Minverva Teichert originals from the families’ and friends’ collections.”

“Periodically,” he remarks, “someone will bring a painting to the show that has never been publicly displayed.”

The show’s goals include being “the least pretentious art show that artists and patrons will attend all year” and placing Teichert’s paintings “in the context in which they were created.” Attendees will “have an opportunity to visit her home (with murals still on the walls), meet her family, friends and students and breathe in the atmosphere of this cowboy community.”

Events include:

  • Tours of the Teichert home
  • Minerva Teichert painting exhibit (public and private collections)
  • Presentation by Julie Rogers — Painter of the pioneer experience
  • Friday evening silent auction and barbeque
  • Plein air demonstrations by Michael Ome Untiedt, noted Colorado artist
  • Artist demonstrations Friday and Saturday

For a schedule of events and lodging information, go here. The site will be updated as arrangements are settled.

Dayton remarks that Minerva was “a remarkably generous woman. My grandmother once commented on how much she liked a large floral painting so Minerva gave it to her.”

For a peek at Charles Dayton’s original western and wildlife paintings, go here. A descendent of Mormon pioneers who colonized the high-mountain valleys in Idaho, Utah and Wyoming, Dayton left an organizational consultant career to pursue his destiny as a painter of western scenes and wildlife.

    BTW, this event is free, since the goal is to “make it as accessible as possible.” The only fee is $7.50 for the Friday night Western barbeque.

    Lucky indeed. Luckier than me (er … “I”).
