“We’ll be using the best light of the day, sunrises and sunsets, and visit some great, and lesser known locations,” notes Diener. “I’ve been exploring and shooting in GTNP for the past 15 yrs. We’ll help participants get comfortable adjusting to changing conditions and sites and create dramatic high-end images. Location scouting, assessing locations and weather, helping participants get to know their cameras, practice with functions and new techniques will be covered. We’ll also spend time each day discussing post-processing computer workflow.” Cost is $875 per person.
The Jackson Hole Historical Society offers free children’s art classes for kids in grades 1-4, Tuesday mornings, 9:30-11:00 a.m., during August. Classes will include storytelling, museum exploring, craft making, and the all important snack. Class sizes are limited to 15 children. Here’s the calendar:
August 2: “Pots, Paper, and Pouches” has fun with stories of Indians, explorers, and settlers. Build a fort and make pemmican to carry in your own handmade pouch.
August 9: “Rod, Reel, and Rifle” explores the important roles that hunting and fishing activities have had in the valley. Includes storytelling, the creation of a “story” hide and a hanging three-dimensional fish.
August 16: “Awe Inspiring Art” discovers the role of artists and photographers in preserving the beauty of Jackson Hole. Includes storytelling, plein air painting, cookie decorating activities and more.
August 23: “Laughs and Lariats” explores the questions “Does the cowboy wear his tools?” and “Does a rodeo have clowns?” Kids make their own chaps and ride into history with a real cowboy to discover the answers.

Berkenfield says he has been fly fishing for eighteen years and guiding in the Greater Yellowstone area for the past twelve. “I have continuously photographed my fishing exploits,” he says. “I have recently begun to focus on new perspectives of trout…fish in hand, and during the moments of release.”
Currier’s work is published in fly fishing magazines, catalogs, brochures, and books. He is the author of Currier’s Quick and Easy Guide to Saltwater Fly Fishing and Currier’s Quick and Easy Guide to Warmwater Fly Fishing guide books.
DeYoung’s work has “veered off from the traditional fish illustration style.” His contemporary paintings focus on style and color rather than rendering realistic images of fish.
The store and gallery are noted fortheir fly fishing equipment, guiding and expertise. A.D. Maddox also calls Wyoming Gallery home. www.jdwyominggallery.com 307.733.7548.
What is this? That’s what my Facebook friend Steve Mooney (SVP, Jack Morton Global Brand Experience!) would ask.
Answer is, it’s a detail (I think!) of one of two walls, each displaying 40 fused glass bricks. The wall is part of the new Home Ranch project, and will be designed and created by Jackson glass artist (and Facebook friend!) John Frechette. The shuffled, stacked stained glass resembles bison and grizzly DNA.
What do you say to that, Facebook friend “Grizzly 399?”
