CHEYENNE, Wyo. — An art gallery that combines Western heritage with contemporary art has recently opened in downtown Cheyenne.

Westward, a new art gallery and Wyo-inspired boutique, hosted its grand opening over the weekend. The new business’s owner is contemporary artist and graphic designer Bria Hammock, who said in a news release that her goal is to celebrate the spirit of the Wild West through contemporary art and design.

“We are thrilled to introduce Westward to the vibrant arts community of Cheyenne and beyond,” Hammock said. “Our goal is to create a space where contemporary art and Western heritage converge, offering visitors a unique and immersive experience that celebrates the rich cultural tapestry of the American West.”

In addition to showcasing Hammock’s own work, Westward features a carefully curated selection of pieces by emerging and established artists Kristy Johnson, Molly Box, Tati Thompson and Sadie Kruseck. The artists are passionate about exploring how contemporary culture and Western heritage intersect.

Beyond its exhibition space, visitors can watch Hammock paint in her open studio. Customers can explore the boutique to discover an array of handcrafted goods inspired by the spirit of the West. From artisanal jewelry to locally sourced home decor and a collection by Go Slo, Hammock’s Wyoming lifestyle brand, each item reflects the timeless appeal of Western craftsmanship and tradition.
