Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival

Fall Arts Festival

For generations Jackson Hole has attracted artists and one look around the landscape, it’s easy to see why. Inspiration abounds.

But Jackson has become more than just a place for plein air painters to study. It’s one of the top art markets in the United States and each autumn collectors and artists come together to create, view, buy and celebrate art during the Fall Arts Festival.

In its 32nd year, the event runs Sept. 7-18 this year. Galleries feature new and emerging works, as well as pieces from their premier and most beloved artists. Many of the artists spend time in the gallery offering demonstrations or greeting patrons.

Events include a quick draw competition where artists create work with limited time and then sell it. The Western Design Conference brings in more than 130 artists to showcase original furniture, fashion and jewelry.

Historic ranch tours take you inside and behind the scenes of some of the valley’s working ranches. Architects and designers welcome visitors into some of the town’s most exquisite houses during the Showcase of Homes. Taste of the Tetons create culinary works of art to sample at a tasting fair.

The schedule is packed with artist receptions, a wine tasting and one of the premier art auctions in the country.

One of the festival’s highlights, the Palates & Palette Gallery Walk, held this year on Sept. 9, pairs local restaurants with galleries. It’s the perfect evening to get a taste of the art scene, moving from each festive mini-party to the next.

Fall is also a great time to appreciate nature’s works of art  with one of Barker-Ewing’s Grand Teton float trips. They run through Sept. 10. A relaxing Jackson Hole float trip allows you to take in the changing colors and wildlife preparing for winter. You might just find yourself inspired to create your own work of art.
