Supporters of open spaces and fine art, please join us at the National Museum of Wildlife Art for the View22: Painting Jackson Hole’s Open Spaces Exhibit, December 6th – 21st, and “Mix’d Media: View22” Event on Thursday, December 11th, 7 to 10 pm.
The exhibit will feature works from the View22: Painting Jackson Hole’s Open Spaces project, an inspired collaboration between the Jackson Hole Land Trust and locally-based artists, now in its second year. Seventeen Land Trust protected properties have been painted on location as part of the View22 project’s goal to unite land conservation and the arts to cultivate a deeper sense of place in Jackson Hole. These works will be on display at the Museum’s Members Lounge and Johnston Hall Rotunda and are also viewable online.
The Museum will host a “Mix’d Media: View22” event Thursday, December 11, from 7 to 10 p.m., with interactive activities and wine & cheese paired with each of the six View22 artists – Jennifer Hoffman, Kathryn Turner, and Bill Sawczuk of Trio Fine Art; Kay Northup, represented by Trailside Galleries (and, in Texas, Whistle Pik Galleries); Lee Riddell, represented by WRJ Design; and Travis Walker, represented by Altamira Fine Art. Activities include creating snow globes, playing a Land Trust matching game, painting watercolor cards, crafting winter barn and cabin wrapping paper, playing a Land Trust map “Twister”, and making letterpress greeting cards.
Works featured in the View22 exhibit are available for purchase off-site through the Land Trust office, at 307.733.4707. A portion of the proceeds will be donated by the artists to the Jackson Hole Land Trust. To inquire about available works and details of the art sale, please contact the Land Trust office directly.
