Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival 2013

Original painting by Jackson Hole local wildlife artist Carrie Wild

It’s hard to believe that another summer season is already yielding to the cool crisp air of fall. September is a great month in Jackson Hole and has long been most local’s favorite month of the year. The weather is great, the elk are bugling and all the wildlife gets more active as they begin to prepare for winter.  Another great feature of fall in Jackson Hole is the annual Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival. This 10 day community festival organized by the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce is one of my favorite events in Jackson. There is so much going on that you might need a separate calendar just to keep track. The most complete resource for this year’s 29th annual festival  can be downloaded at http://issuu.com/ncihomedesign/docs/29th_annual_jhfaf or visit the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce website for a more detailed itinerary. The list below includes most of the highlights plus a couple artist events for friends and employees who we think you might enjoy meeting.

You can see Carrie Wild, our office manager and an extremely talented contemporary wildlife painter, demonstrating her craft at Grand Teton Gallery on September 11 from 1-5pm and on September 12 from 11-3. Rip Caswell, a close friend and world famous bronze artist will be giving sculpting demonstrations throughout the festival including September 7th, 10th and 11th from 1-5pm at Grand Teton Gallery. On September 9th our friend Pete Zaluzec will be at Horizon Gallery. He is a talented bronze artist and photographer and his work should not be missed. Another not to be missed opportunity is the chance to meet Mary Roberson and see some of her newest works during her reception at Altimira Gallery from 5-8pm on September 6th.

Everyone has their favorite events of the Fall Arts Festival but there are a couple that shouldn’t be missed! The Palates & Palettes Gallery Walk on September 6th is a community favorite and a great way to get out and support the participating galleries and artists. The 14th Annual Takin’ It to the Streets on September 8th is a great event in the Jackson town square with several other events happening in the same place including Taste of the Tetons and Rotary Supper Club’s Fall Arts Festival Wine Tasting and Silent Auction. This is one of my favorite days of the festival and a great community.  Finally there is the crown of the festival which is the 18th Annual Jackson Hole QuickDraw Art Sale and Auction. This fundraiser for the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce is a blast. Watch local artists, including our own Carrie Wild, create fantastic fine art in 90 minutes that will be auctioned off immediately after they are finished. The paint is still wet when the money starts flying at this fun live auction right on the street! If you didn’t get enough action all week the last event of the festival is another gallery walk with brunch style apps and mimosas served by participating galleries.
