Carvings on the Aspens and Collection of Poems

The Sublette County Artists’ Guild has kindly chosen to share its 75th anniversary celebration with the people of Wyoming — and what a celebration that has come to be.

In paying tribute to Lora Neal Jewett, Josephine Jons Jones, Marie Meyer, Mary Annette Murdock, Louise McCabe Rathbun and May McAlister Sommers, the guild is paying tribute to a group of people who have inspired hearts and touched lives with their strong personalities and vivid writing.

Their art fills this book, which brings together “Carvings on the Aspens” and “Collection of Poems,” two of the earliest publications for the Sublette County Artists’ Guild.  Formed in 1928, the guild specializes in the sort of uniquely personal tales that bring alive the plains of Wyoming.
