Saturday, January 7, 2023 - Saturday, February 25, 2023
View "Dark Sky Visions" exhibition in the main gallery at the Carbon County Arts Guild & Depot Gallery. "Dark Sky Visions" features seven notable artists with amazing photographic work of the night skies. Artists include John Ashley (Rio Rico, AZ), Jeremy Battles (Red Lodge, MT), Mervin D. Coleman (Red Lodge, MT), Mark S. Moak (Billings, MT), Heidi Pinkerton (Hibbing, MN), Ben Sherman (Billings, MT), and Dave Shumway (Sheridan, WY).
Each artist hopes their night time inspired imagery will bring awareness and encourage people to understand the importance of protecting our skies from light pollution. In addition, the artists hope to educate the public about the work being done locally by the Red Lodge Dark Skies committee to make Red Lodge a designated International Dark Sky Community.
OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, January 7, 2023 / 4-6 p.m. / 5 p.m. is a Gallery Talk by "Dark Sky" artists. This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be courtesy of the Red Lodge Dark Skies committee and the Carbon County Arts Guild.
