Mark your calendars for two upcoming Jackson Hole Art Association events.
Warming your soul and belly, 2010’s Art for the Soul, Soup for the Bowl takes place Friday, November 19, in the Center for the Arts Theater Lobby. Soup sipping begins at 5:30 pm, and $25 buys you a hand thrown ceramic bowl–chosen by you, so first come is first served–a buffet of delicious soups by local restaurants and…BEER. And open mic!
Participating artists include: Shannon & Rudy Borrego, Ginger Burley, Sue Colligan, Jenny Dowd, Sam Dowd, Peggy Mathiesen, Linda MacGregor, Dawn McKibbon, Janet Monahan, Sue Morriss, Dean Stayner, Cynthia Guild Stoetzer and Matt Tosi.
On Saturday, December 4th, check out the Art Association’s 46th Annual Christmas Bazaar at Snow King Ice Arena. Just $2 gets you in the door–and once in it’s easy to spend hours, spending money on gifts created by artists and crafts people from around the region. Hours are 9:30 am – 5:00 pm. (Unless you are an artist, and then God only knows what time you have to be there! More power to you, artists!)

September Vhay’s recent participation in arts shows around the country, previously mentioned in the Jackson Hole Art Blog, may not have included a mention of the artist’s Southwest Art’s “21 over 31” winning entry, “Mercury Dance.” The competition features juried works from around the country—this year at least 3,000 artists submitted work. Subjects included figures, landscapes and still lifes.
Horses are figures. And the way Vhay paints them, horses-as-subject become sculptural still lifes.
Southwest Magazine’s Bonnie Gangelhoff interviewed Vhay. In the interview, Vhay talks about her love of horses as subject matter, and as powerful and intuitive creatures. Vhay’s great grandfather, Gutzon Borglum, created Mt. Rushmore! That is a legacy to live up to, and Vhay tells Gangelhoff that she aspires to be an artist whose work is included in New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Locally, Vhay is represented by Trio Fine Art.
