The Teton Literacy’s Second Annual Mother’s Day Trunk Show, a two-day event, features the best of Jackson Hole’s local arts. May 1-2, take a pre-Mother’s Day stroll over to the historic Wort Hotel in downtown Jackson to view, and bid on, a wealth of jewelry, glasswork, paintings, sculpture, ceramics, needlework and more. Bid on a complimentary, two-hour Jackson Hole Art Tour for four! (Value $130 – a great gift for the art-loving ladies in your life, a great treat for summer visitors!) Fly fishing, spa visits and more goodies will also be up for bid.
The event kicks off with a Friday, May 1 cocktail party and first glance at some great items up for silent bid at the Wort; Saturday, May 2, come back to check out the all-day trunk show and bidding action.
All proceeds benefit the Teton Literacy Program. Check with event organizers regarding non-profit donation tax benefits. Stefanie Thompson and Andria Clancy are the co-chairs. For more information log onto Teton Literacy’s website. Phone 307-733-9242.
Art for the Soul-Soup for the Bowl, happening at the Art Association on Friday, May 1, 5:30-8:00 p.m., is a new and down-to-earthenware fundraiser for the Art Association’s community arts education program. An affordable $25 gets you in the door. Once in, here’s what happens: pick your own hand-thrown ceramic bowl–thrown or coiled by Art Association ceramicists. Then, fill that beautiful bowl with your choice of an array of delicious soups from local restaurants.
And…drink beer! (Hope there’s some cheddar soup to go with that.) Open mic entertainment is on the docket, and attendees get a sneak preview of this Spring’s YARD Art exhibition, headed up by local artist Ben Roth.
Bowl-er artists include: Wesley Barron, Rudy Borrego, Jenny Dowd, Sam Dowd, Bronwyn Minton, Janet Monahan, Robert Palmquist, Allison Parker, Amanda Rizner, Veronica Schreibeis, Valerie Seaberg, Dean Stayner, Marianne Sturken, Tenley Thompson, Josh Thulin and Nicole Waichunas.
