A new virtual gallery has made it possible for those self-distancing to still enjoy the arts. It Takes A Village is the brainchild of Cheyenne-based artist Bria Hammock and is Wyoming's first quarantine-friendly art gallery. 

Visitors can either take a 360-degree virtual tour online, or view the exhibit through the first floor windows of The Array Building in Cheyenne, a safe distance away from each other.

The exhibit is a fundraiser to benefit Support Our Students, a local nonprofit that helps low-income families with children in school. Hammock said she wanted to combine art and technology as a way to give back to her community during this time of need.

"Not only can this fundraiser reach Cheyenne and locals here but with it being a virtual gallery, the footprint is so much larger," she said.

All pieces are available for purchase as originals or prints. Tour the online gallery at briahammock.com or in-person at The Array Building, 106 E. Lincolnway, Cheyenne, until May 30.

Bria is a principle artist at Hammock Fine Art and an entrepreneur. She is the owner of Wyoming lifestyle brand Go Slo and also serves on the board of Casper's Art321.
