The art show is in memory of nationally known Boulder, Wyoming artist Lynn Thomas who died of cancer in 2009. Lynn was a member of Women Artists of the West, president of the Wyoming Artists' Association and Grand Wyoming Artist in 1997, an avid supporter of 4-H and the arts in general throughout the state, a founding member of Mixed Media, and a member of Sublette County Artists' Guild. She and her husband, Joe, owned and operated Big Sandy Lodge for 20 years.
