Little info on these shows, but do check your “local listings” to find out more.
Galleries West Fine Art presents artists Jennifer L. Hoffman and D. Lee, in a double show, Connections. An opening reception takes place at the gallery on Friday, July 2, 5-8:00 pm. The show’s concept is to compare the landscapes of, I presume, Hoffman, to the animal subject works of Lee.
The artists are looking to connect the two experiences; one might assume there is no connection. Hoffman and Lee will beg to differ, I wager. Hoffman’s landscapes are created over a long period of time, while Lee works “alla prima” – paintings are completed in a single session. The show explores the artists’ respective relationships to nature and the artistic process of rendering landscape and wildlife.
Connections remains on display through July 18. www.gallerieswestjacksonhole.com.
Ashley Collins, painter of very large canvases depicting horses, returns to the Diehl Gallery this summer. In fact, she is already there. June 24, an artist’s reception will be held from 5-8:00 p.m. The show remains up through July 14.
A special preview benefiting Teton Science Schools took place on June 23rd; Diehl Gallery and Ashley Collins are proud to give back to the Jackson community and support Teton Science School’s educational initiatives, repeating their initiative of Summer 2009.
Noted for her abstract figurative images of horses, as well as her Colorfield works, she’s collected everywhere.
And where’s everywhere? Diehl says private and public collections in Sydney, Dubai, Munich and New York display her work. Super famous collectors include: Robert Redford, 20th Century Fox, Deborah Winger, Danny Sullivan III (race car driver) , Ringo Starr, the Sultan of Brunei,…maybe even the Sultan of Swing. It’s a pretty impressive list, and I note several outdoor enthsuiasts are included. Collins has exhibited worldwide for years, including exhibitions with Rauschenberg, Dill, Motherwell, and (Jim) Dine.
