Jackson Hole, Wyo., (PRWEB) March 10, 2015
Now in its 31st year, and continually growing in popularity and attendance, the 2015 Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival has announced the dates for its 2015 events, Sept.10 - 20. The 10-day fall festival is one of the best times to visit Jackson, Wyo., with long days, comfortable temperatures, fall colors in the surrounding mountains, and the excitement around town from the bountiful art scene with its variety of family-friendly events. Ranked a top 10 small city for art lovers, Jackson knows how to embrace and celebrate all that is the arts.
The Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival will provide its usual stellar lineup of arts-inspired events for 2015, from gallery walks and the popular Jackson Town Square QuickDraw to architecture tours and Taste of the Tetons culinary arts. As The New York Times has described it, the Jackson Hole Falls Arts Festival is a special place where the rugged and the refined meet. The festival offers visitors more than 50 events, many of them free, surrounded by the Teton Mountain Range in its autumn glory. And collectors – or just those that want a memento of the experience – will enjoy the opportunity to purchase one-of-a-kind artworks from cowboy to cutting-edge contemporary.
Other major scheduled events during the festival include the National Museum of Wildlife Art’s Western Visions® Wild West 100 Party on Sept. 17, and Wild 100 Show & Sale happening September 18, where more than 200 paintings, sculptures and sketches by the Wild 100 Artists will be on display and available for purchase. A month-long fundraiser for the Jackson Hole-based museum that takes place throughout the month of September, Western Visions also includes opportunities to attend lectures or workshops by the event’s featured artists, a jewelry and artisan show and sale, and much more.
Across town at the Snow King Sports & Events Center, museum-quality contemporary Western decorative arts will be on display and for sale at the annual Western Design Conference (WDC), Sept. 10 - 13. A popular Western couture runway fashion show is part of the WDC’s Opening Preview Party on Sept. 10. A Designer Show House set up inside the Snow King Center will inspire visitors with how to design with Western furnishings and accessories at home.
Additional much-anticipated fall arts festival events include strolling Jackson’s distinctive wood-plank sidewalks to sip wine and view current artworks at Jackson’s many art galleries as part of the annual Palates and Palettes Gallery Walk on Sept. 11. There is no charge for the event where galleries open their doors, offering tasty snacks and wine as crowds view the latest art on display. On Sept. 12, the annual Historic Ranch Tour provides a firsthand experience of cowboy arts from music to poetry while visiting some lovely historic ranching properties. The Taste of the Tetons, held on Jackson’s Town Square on Sept. 13, presents samples of the best of the valley chefs’ culinary arts.
