FALL ARTS FESTIVAL
JACKSONHOLECHAMBER.COM
In September, as summer ends and the cooler nights of fall arrive, the town of Jackson celebrates its love of the arts with the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival. After the challenging year of 2020, living virtually and online, Jackson is excited to host its 37th Fall Arts Festival and take its place once again as a world-class destination for the arts. From September 8 to September 19, the town will be alive with artists and designers from all over the country who share a love for the American West and are here to display their work. Throughout the year, the Jackson Hole community shows its commitment and support of the arts with over 15 fine art galleries in town; the Center for the Arts, a nonprofit organization with a dedicated campus that is the hub for artistic, cultural and creative activity; and the National Museum of Wildlife Art. It is the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival that unites everyone interested in the creative arts, interiors, fashion, architecture, music, local cuisine and locally created beverages.

The Western Design Conference Preview Night + Fashion Show is a must for locals and tourists alike. Showstopper Montana Dreamwear returns this year.

Paintings are auctioned immediately following the 90-minute QuickDraw session.

FEATURED ARTIST

This year’s Fall Arts Festival featured artist is Gary Lynn Roberts, a third-generation artist living in the Bitterroot Valley of western Montana. He trained with many of America’s finest artists, developing a style of painting that is a combination of realism and impressionism. His spiritual connection to the West and his experience with rodeos and training horses are evident in his paintings of life in the historic West—cattle drives, Indian encampments, cowboys and Western wildlife. Roberts’ large-scale oil painting created for the Fall Arts Festival is of Jackson’s Wort Hotel in the 1940s. Posters and Jackson Hole Winery wine with artwork labels are available for sale and signing by the artist.

2021’s featured artist, Gary Lynn Roberts, is a longtime participant in Jackson Hole’s Fall Arts Festival. Roberts is pictured here, painting in a previous Jackson Hole QuickDraw.

JACKSON HOLE SHOWCASE OF HOMES

On Friday, September 17, Jackson Hole Showcase of Homes
is a one-day, self-guided tour of some of Jackson Hole’s most spectacular new homes, inspired by the natural beauty of this valley. Attendees personally engage with the talented professionals who designed, built and furnished the residences, getting an intimate view of their creative genius. In addition
to providing a firsthand look at the work of the accomplished professionals, this unique tour is a fundraiser for the community, with all proceeds going to local charities.

WESTERN DESIGN CONFERENCE EXHIBIT + SALE

The Western Design Conference Exhibit + Sale kicks off the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival with its Preview Party on Thursday, September 9, from 6 to 10 p.m. Snow King Event Center is magically transformed to host a party like no other—cocktails and wine, hors d’oeuvres, artists’ and designers’ booths to shop, museum-quality art displayed on pedestals competing for $20,000 in cash awards, an art auction, a live runway fashion show and a six-room designer show house. Over 100 artists and designers from all over the country who love the West come together to showcase their work in furniture, fashion, jewelry, leather, interior design and more. The Exhibit + Sale continues Friday through Sunday.

QUICKDRAW

Jackson Hole is famous for its QuickDraw, the premier live, fine art event of the Fall Arts Festival. On the town green the public can watch internationally recognized artists create masterpieces in 90 minutes, which immediately go to live auction. Midway through the auction, Gary Lynn Roberts’ oil painting of the Wort Hotel is up for bid. The QuickDraw can be viewed and bid on either in person or online.
