SWEETWATER COUNTY, WYOMING (October 20, 2021) — Local photographers have an opportunity to display their creative work at the White Mountain Library in Rock Springs. The Sweetwater Photography Open is an annual event in the Sweetwater County Library System and is scheduled for December and January.
The exhibit will open on December 1st and be on display through January 29th. The deadline to enter is November 29th at 5 p.m.
The two-page entry form is available at the county libraries circulation desks and at the Community Fine Arts Center.

The Exhibits Committee of the Library System developed the guidelines for the exhibits displayed in the county libraries, which is included on the application forms.
