Wyold Aspen Studio
Wyold Aspen Studio
Jerry L. Wood Sculptor - Stone, Slate and Wood
Born and raised in the Rocky Mountains, I have always had a love for the vastness of the region, as well as the beauty all around. The inspiration for my artwork is derived from the experiences of being raised in the Rocky Mountains, whether is be landscapes or wildlife. Each medium lends it own magic to the creation of my artwork. In my stone carvings, the forms are held within the stone waiting to be released. It is a dance of labor and love, fatigue and fascination as the image emerges. Only by participation in this dance can the beauty of the stone be brought forth for all to see.

History

Ester Hobart Morris

Mrs. Ester Hobart Morris has been widely acclaimed as an influential figure in the events that established women’s suffrage in Wyoming. However, her role in promoting suffrage legislation in the territory has been disputed. The record shows that in 1869, during the territory’s first legislative session, William H. Bright introduced a women’s suffrage bill. Although the legislation was received with some humor, it did pass and was signed into law by Governor John A. Campbell, thus according the young territory immediate fame as the first government to grant women the right to vote in all public elections.
