Museum features artists

DEL NORTE — Wade Collins and Byron Williams, artists from Saguache, will both be part of the art shows and displays with Rio Grande County Museum. 

Collins will show his western art through the middle of August and is the featured artist in the museum for Covered Wagon Days. He will be present on August 5th to talk to people and discuss his work. He has a wide variety being shown, everything from large saw blades, paintings, bronze sculptures to delicately painted Christmas ornaments.

Last year Byron Williams was a featured artist in the museum. His show was a great success and the museum will be bringing him back to have some of his work for sale in the bookstore.

Williams works with natural materials making baskets, sculptures, rattles and masks.                                     

Williams will show his work again at the museum starting in August. His Saguache Gallery location is 301 5th Street and the name is Smith Market Gallery.

Both of these artists will be showing their work at the Hollyhock Festival in Saguache on July 29th.
