Fiber art by two Sheridan women is on display this month at Expressions Gallery and Framing on Broadway.

Wanda Kerns, owner of Expressions, said the exhibition was originally planned through April 16 but the show has been extended and will now hang through April 23. She explained how the showing by fiber artists Rosemary Denton and Mary Krueger came about.

She said the two have been recognized for their work on the national level but not locally. The two – who said they nearly always appear in shows together – have earned Master Craftsman honors and have been represented in national shows.

They were at Expressions from 1:30 to 3 p.m. Friday to meet the public and talk about their work, and the exhibition will be open for viewing during the Expressions hours from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 10- a.m. to 4 p.m. Fridays and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays.

Denton is a retired U.S. Air Force colonel, and Krueger has spent many years as an avid hunter and fisherman, traveling with her husband in the U.S. And Africa.

Both artists say they’re strongly inspired by their travels. They said they have used hundreds of types of stitches and techniques throughout the works on exhibit.

I have been a personal friend of Mary Krueger for many, many years as a result of our husbands being shipmates in the U.S. Navy during the Korean Conflict. Mary first gifted me with a quilted jacket I had admired while visiting Ted and her in 1997. That jacket, for which I believe Mary had received an award, had been on exhibit at the fairgrounds in Sheridan. She then sent me another guilted jacket when I was recovering from lung cancer surgery in 2001. Fast forward to 2021 ~ I still own and wear those jackets and always look forward to the compliments I receive from complete strangers. Mary, I make sure to tell everyone who the ARTIST is who made them and how proud I am to continue to be your ‘walking’ exhibit of your much appreciated talent and generosity! BTW, I am a resident of Towson, Maryland, just a few miles east of Sheridan, Wyoming, proving Mary’s beautiful and priceless, in my opinion, talent and artwork has been on exhibit almost from coast to coast. CONGRATULATIONS TO MARY AND ROSEMARY!
