POWELL, Wyo. ─ “Deduction, speculation, and fantasy,” an exhibit of embroidered photo art by Billings artist Jane Waggoner Deschner opens in Powell on Nov. 1 with a 4:30 p.m. artist’s reception in SinClair Gallery on the Northwest College campus.
Billings artist Jane Waggoner Deschner used embroidery and found photos to create “Superman goofy boy,” one of the works displayed in “deduction, speculation and fantasy,” an exhibit opening Tuesday, Nov. 1, at Northwest College’s SinClair Gallery.
Using Victor Hugo’s words, Billings artist Jane Waggoner Deschner embroidered new meaning onto a found photograph in “Hugo as a bird.” This and other Deschner creations go on display Tuesday, Nov. 1, at Northwest College’s SinClair Gallery.
Jane Waggoner Deschner looks at broken rimrocks where a slab of sandstone fell into her house at 1313 Granite in October.
Geologist Shawn Kuzara brushes snow from the top of the Rimrocks to better measure the movement of a huge rock shelf.
To track the movement of slabs that are falling away from the Rimrocks above Billings, researchers with the state Bureau of Mines and Geology measure the growing distance between nails driven into the Rims and other nails on detached slabs.
A fallen sandstone boulder was built into the house that Jim and Eva Koessler bought on Harrow Drive beneath the Rims. The room serves as Jim's home office.
The weather was still clement when Wayne Nelson showed some visitors the huge block of sandstone that towers over his house on Ronan Drive.

Knowing what they know, geologists tend to be skittish about the prospect of living under Billings' beautiful but unstable Rims, whose slopes are thick with slabs and boulders shed over thousands of years.
Jane Waggoner Deschner looks at a broken section of the Rimrocks where a slab of sandstone tumbled into her home at 1313 Granite Avenue on Saturday. Deschner was out of town when the rock tumbled into the house, knocking it from it's foundation. October 12, 2010.
Jane Waggoner Deschner and her husband hope to hear by Friday whether damage to their house, which was partially demolished by a sandstone boulder last weekend, is covered by their insurance policy.
