A great Jackson Hole winter tradition, Winter Carnival, kicks off tomorrow, January 29, at the National Museum of Wildlife Art. Each year, the Museum puts on its famous “Quick Draw,” a group “art-in” of talented artists creating art before attendees’ eyes. The event includes student artists, so there’s something exciting to see for every age group.
Tomorrow’s event showcases the talents of Tom Bradshaw, Eliot Goss, Fred Kingwill, Greg McHuron, Matt Montagne, Cathy Munson, Bill Sawczuk, Kay Stratman, Kathryn Mapes Turner, Kathy Wipfler, and Jackson Hole High School art students Jesse Cole, Emily Clare Gimpel, Nina Palomba and Kiki Zaist. This roster includes artists whose works are part of the Museum’s collection and who contribute annually to NMWA’s “Western Visions: Miniatures and More” Show and Sale.
The evening includes musical entertainment, and that famous “Gourmet Chilly” Bar. So throw off January’s chill, watch art being created before your very eyes, and enjoy the company of fellow art and chili lovers, all in one night. Doors open at 5:30 pm. Admission is $10 for members, $15 for non-members, and students get in FREE. 307-733-5771.
