Busy and productive as she is, Wilson artist Miga Rossetti keeps kind of a low profile. I was recently reminded of the charm and vibrancy of her artwork–searching around for holiday cards with art created by locals, I found Miga’s site. Have you checked out her incredible inventory? It’s huge! She’s created more designs than Hallmark! She also practices “green art,” using recycled paper and veggie-based inks. Miga’s cards and other products are packed with great color and reflect incredible joy–and respect–for the world. She’s a painter–you might remember her great 2005 Art Fair Jackson Hole poster. One of the best Art Fair posters, I think. I have a little black frame around mine, and it’s displayed prominently in my home.
There’s a whimsical folk-art quality to Miga’s work, as well as a lot of play with collage. Her artwork has been featured on the cover of Oregon Public Broadcasting’s magazine (Steve Bass is currently the head of Oregon Public Broadcasting; local ex-WGBHers like myself and John Kerr know Steve from his days at that Boston public station) and the Wyoming Cultural Guide. Her artwork is featured on the 2010/2011 Winter issue of Teton Family Magazine. Pretty impressive stuff.
So while the holiday season is just about past, it’s still a nice time to check out Miga’s work. Her paintings and designs appear on all manner of greeting and paper gifts. Her cards and journals are available in various local retail outlets, and you can find them at www.rossettidesigns.com
Montana artist David Wharton-an extraordinary watercolorist who should have representation in Jackson-will have a trunk show of origininal works at the Teton Village home of Natalie Clark and Henry Armour–it’s happening right now, but you need to call for an appointment to see the work. Wharton’s work is good enough to have made the cut in Peter Hassrick’s noted arts book “Artists in Yellowstone.”
You are in for a treat.
