The third annual Jackson Hole Art Auction will take place Saturday, September 19, 2009 at the Jackson Hole Center for the Arts Theater. The live auction, a major Fall Arts Festival event, is a collaboration between Trailside Galleries and Gerald Peters Galleries.
The auction’s sweep of historic artists includes a rich array of paintings from the Taos Society of Artists, and recognized historic artists whose early visions of America’s West shaped the world’s perceptions of a new and largely unexplored world. Deceased masters represented in the Jackson Hole Art Auction have included C.M. Russell, Albert Bierstadt, Maynard Dixon–an excellent DVD on Maynard Dixon’s life and legacy narrated by Diane Keaton is available at Trailside Galleries– E. Irving Couse, John Clymer, Bob Kuhn, Carl Rungius and more. William Acheff, Clyde Aspevig, Robert Bateman–recently the subject of a special retrospective at the National Museum of Wildlife Art–Z.S. Liang, Mian Situ, Howard Terpning and more.
According to press releases, last year’s auction fetched 7.7 million. The auction is currently soliciting consignments for this year’s auction. Preview works already consigned upstairs at Trailside Galleries, 130 East Broadway. Contact Heidi Theios for more information, at 1-866-549-9278. email: [email protected]
