Steamboat Springs — Colorado Mountain College biology professor Shawn Sigstedt was thrilled this week to witness the roar of a towering plume of steam issuing from the Steamboat Geyser.

An exhibit of Basalt, Colo., photographer Gayle Waterman’s abstract work will be on display at Colorado Mountain College in Steamboat Springs beginning Aug. 28.
Through use of color and interpretative design, Waterman’s work shows an affinity for 20th century abstract painters Wassily Kandinsky and Georgia O’Keeffe. Waterman says she has a passion for taking an object, such as an antique, and focusing on one aspect of it, giving the viewer a new way to see the piece in a new context.
Through Oct. 28, Waterman’s abstract photography will be exhibited by CMC ArtShare on the first floor of the college’s academic and student services building in Steamboat Springs. Her work has also been featured in a solo exhibit at Colorado Mountain College’s ArtShare Gallery in Glenwood Springs in 2012.
Colorado Mountain College’s campus in Steamboat Springs is located at 1275 Crawford Ave. The academic and student services building is open to the public Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Friday-Saturday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act, Steamboat Magazine asked people, “What does wilderness mean to you?” The staff talked with artists, ranchers, naturalists, land managers, photographers and many Steamboat Magazine contributors featured in the magazine’s pages throughout the years.
CMC professor Tina Evans was one of contributors whose words were featured in the final printed piece published in Steamboat magazine. You can find Tina’s essay on wilderness towards the end of the compilation of voices, reprinted below, that was edited by Jennie Lay and first printed in Steamboat Magazine. “We learned just how much these wild landscapes mean to Yampa Valley folks,” wrote Steamboat Magazine, in their introduction to the piece. There was “a unified reverence for wilderness is palpable; they express their individual passions in the words that follow.”

CMC athletes earn Phi Theta Kappa and All Academic honors
Students on Colorado Mountain College’s Alpine Ski Team juggle academics with an intense travel schedule. Despite the extra challenge incurred by life on the road, the team managed to earn a cumulative GPA of 3.55 during the spring 2014 semester.
Two students, Will Cutler and Connor Croasdale, also earned All Academic Team and Phi Theta Kappa honors. “The cooperation between students and professors is outstanding,” says Coach Terry Leonard. “Their willingness to work with students that have almost impossible travel schedules is second to none. Without this support and cooperation the team could not accomplish what they do.”
