The Arts and Environment are inseparable, and will remain so.
Welcome to the NEW Jackson Hole Art Blog! A world of difference, yes? With our new format you can see several posts at a time, search more efficiently, follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, check out image credits, learn more about the person writing this thing, and even become a sponsor! We are working on updating our subscription feed, and as soon as that’s set, you’ll be able to subscribe. We’ll tweak a little here, a little there, as we go along.
Our NEW URL is: www.jacksonholeartblog.com and you can email me at [email protected] OR [email protected]. Sponsorships are available; four large images at the top of the page, currently replicating the latest blog posts, will become top tier sponsorship space. Additionally, revoloving spaces are available on the right column.
From time to time, I’ll welcome guest writers. If you have something on your mind and are interested in writing a piece for the Blog, please let me know. If the content is good and we agree on edits, you’ll be posted!
I want to thank Mike DeLange of Crystal Creek Consulting for all his hard work creating the new Jackson Hole Art Blog. He thinks of everything, and you can find a link to his website at the bottom of our home page. Thank you, Mike. You are a pro!
Special thanks to all the wonderful people in the arts community who have provided testimonials over the years. Your words express so well what I feel in my heart, and your sentiments will be added to our top-of-the-page menu soon.
“The Jackson Hole Art Blog is an incredible resource. Tammy’s understanding of the art scene wrapped in beautiful prose, makes for a pleasurable, informed destination for artists and collectors alike.” ~ Borbay
