View22: Field Study Works Now Available Online!

In 2017, we invited 21 local artists to create place-inspired art on 18 Jackson Hole Land Trust conservation properties in Teton, Fremont, and Sublette counties. The momentum for the project built over the summer as artists created their works and interacted with the community at artist demonstrations at the R Lazy S, and the Teton Food Tour.

View22: Field Study will culminate this Sunday, August 13th, 2017 with an exhibit and sale at the Jackson Hole Land Trust’s 37th Annual Picnic at the Hardeman North Meadow in Wilson.

The 80 finished works are now available for viewing and purchase through our downloadable e-catalog! The catalog will be updated periodically to reflect sales.

For inquiries regarding art sales please contact Roxanne Pierson at roxanne@jhlandtrust.org or 307-733-4707.

Elizabeth Cogburn Birnie – Rock Springs

 

My assigned property for this summer’s View22 project is a section of land just south of the Hobacks in Teton Village. I had hiked and skied through this Land Trust property countless time but had no idea it was one of the Land Trust properties until this spring! On my hikes up to Rock Springs, I have enjoyed the beautiful wild flowers, rushing streams and deep forests. I am working on painting one of the views from the property as well as some details of the wild flowers.

From August 1st -14th, the buzz continued building as the 13 View22 open-access locations were marked with green JHLT flags.

Chris Figenshau – Rock Springs JHMR

When we asked adventure sports photographer Chris Figenshau to join the View22 Project this year, we already had a location in mind: the 211-acre property owned by the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort at the base of Rock Springs Canyon, which forms the lower half of a popular backcountry ski run just outside the resort’s southern boundary. Known for his envy and adrenaline-inducing “Photo of the Day” shots of untracked powder and big mountain skiing for JHMR’s social media sites, Chris is also a climber, so Rock Springs was familiar terrain for him. He snapped this shot during the valley’s peak greenness in early (and rainy) July, capturing lifting clouds and sunshine on Rock Springs buttress, and conserved open spaces and ranch lands in the valley below.
