The 26th Annual Western Visions, presented by the National Museum of Wildlife Art, is one of the signature events of the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival. Always exciting and fresh, Western Visions consists of a number of events held over several days. The wide variety of events ensures that there is something for every artistic palate. The money raised from this fundraiser supports educational programming at the Museum. The week’s events, offered at the Museum’s award-winning facility across from the National Elk Refuge, draw an international crowd to this critically acclaimed gathering. During Fall Arts Festival (and year-round), the Museum is a hub for art lovers, wildlife and outdoor enthusiasts, and more.
The event showcases several of the nation’s leading wildlife artists and challenges them to scale the grandeur of the outdoors into petite proportions. Artists are encouraged to contribute a painting or sculpture no larger than 9 x 12 inches. In addition to miniatures, noted artists also contribute larger works for the event – known as “Mores.”
This year’s Western Visions is comprised of four distinct shows and sales:
- The always popular Painting & Sculpture Show and Sale includes original works of art from many perspectives.
- Find distinctive jewelry and wearable arts and the Jewelry & Artisan Show and Sale.
- Original Prints Show and Sale includes a variety of etchings, woodblock and lithography pieces.
- The Sketch Show and Sale features sketches in various media created by Western Visions artists as part of their creative process.
The Museum and the Rising Sage Café are in full swing during the daytime. Make sure you reserve a few hours to enjoy the impressive gathering of paintings, sculpture, sketches, photography, jewelry, textiles and more.
