The Graveyard Shift is a Brinton Museum invitational exhibition featuring works by sixteen highly accomplished, award-winning artists from Wyoming and Colorado and also California and Wisconsin. The idea behind the show is directly related to the cemetery as a place of rest, one’s last repose, and the interface between life and death. Consequentially, artists were asked to submit pieces in keeping with a cemetery theme and the subject matter contained therein. Works in this show range in scale and artistic style from Loughridge’s charming woodblock print of a hillside graveyard in LaSauses to Keith Davis’s gelatin-silver prints of exquisite marble sculpture found in Monumental Cemetery of Staglieno, in Genoa, Italy.
