Soon after starting work on her eclipse-themed art show, Melanie Myron started finding inspiration in circular objects everywhere.
She found muses in yellow and white cup lids while lunching with a friend. She saw the sun in beer bottle caps, coins and even faucet parts. Friends helped her twist Oreos apart until the frosting mirrored the shapes of different phases of the eclipse. By the time the ideas started to get really silly, she was creating collages from wrappers of Eclipse gum, Starbursts and Milky Ways.
Myron’s show at ART 321, “Not Totally Eclipsed,” is just one of many eclipse-themed displays currently in Casper galleries. Just like people working in other sectors, Wyoming artists have been preparing for the celestial event for months.
The upcoming event has given inspiration and a chance to show and sell their work to what may be the largest audience their work will receive in Wyoming, which is expecting tens of thousands of visitors.
