More phenomenal, important works are coming in to the Jackson Hole Art Auction, taking place on Saturday, September 14th, 2013 at Jackson Hole’s Center for the Arts. The auction, produced jointly by Trailside Galleries of Jackson, WY and Scottsdale, AZ, and the Gerald Peters Gallery of Santa Fe, NM, will be presenting the seventh annual Jackson Hole Art Auction this year. The auction is a “grand finale” to Jackson’s annual Fall Arts Festival.
Highlights for the 2013 auction include significant works by Roy Andersen, William de la Montagne Cary, John Clymer, Maynard Dixon, Henry Farny, E. Martin Hennings, Thomas Hill, W.H.D. Koerner, Bob Kuhn, Wilhelm Kuhnert, Frank McCarthy, Kenneth Riley, Carl Rungius, Richard Schmid, Charles Schreyvogel, Olaf Wieghorst, Henriette Wyeth, Eustace Paul Ziegler, and more. The images in this post are just a few of recently consigned works up for sale.
And, rumor has it that there will be some exciting new dynamics in motion at this year’s event, so be sure to check in with auction headquarters! In Jackson, auction headquarters are upstairs at Trailside Galleries, 130 East Broadway, just a block off Town Square. Enter the gallery (look around, it’s beautiful!) then head up the stairs and to the rear of the second floor to view many works that will be up for sale. You can also speak with auction representatives about auction details.
The Jackson Hole Art Auction is currently accepting quality consignments for 2013. Whether you have an extensive collection or a few rarities, call their office at 866-549-9278, or visit their website at www.jacksonholeartauction.com.
There’s a new art space in town: Intencións. Billed as an “intentional art gallery and studio,” the gallery will host a free grand opening cocktail reception at 5:30p.m., on Thursday, June 13th. Intencións is located at 160A West Broadway, at the corner of Millward.
The gallery’s first show features the art of Susan Hall; she will be in attendance that evening and joins the staff in inviting the public to “experience this new high vibrational studio, where art and crystal sound bowls resonate with inner beauty.”
The artist spent 27 years as a medical illustrator documenting more than 6,500 surgeries, notes Julie Kling, a partner in this new venture. Hall chronicled children suffering from congenital heart defects and her drawings helped and supported families by allowing them to understand clinical procedures. This exhibit features her Chakra series of Lotus flowers, AND work by local artist Lyndsey McCandless. McCandless is creating a fabric space that will “allow families to walk through the colors of the chakras in their bodies.”
Throughout the weekend there will be art and fun projects for the whole family, including free Crystal Sound Bowl Meditations, Music, the exhibits and Interactive Art Projects. The schedule of activities and events is in flux, so check in with Daniela Botur, at 646-853-3056 for full details. Namasté!
JUNE 10th is the deadline for artists to submit work to be considered for the Art Association’s “Best of Wyoming,” a juried, all-media-welcome, exhibition opening June 28th at the Art Association. The show’s jury is selecting works created in any medium, and the expectation is that this show will spotlight wonderful artists from across Wyoming; artists we may not be familiar with here in Jackson, but should be. It’s thrilling to see new talent, witness new impressions, hear voices otherwise hidden.
