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 Aug. 5 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 into the museum to have some of his work for sale in the bookstore.
Williams works with natural materials making baskets, sculptures, rattles and masks. His work will be featured at the museum beginning in August. Williams’ Saguache gallery, Smith Market Gallery, is located at 301 5th Street.
Both of these artists will be showing their work at the Hollyhock Festival in Saguache on July 29 as well.
