Susan Orlean is coming to Jackson next month, and you can already snag your free tickets for the event.
Visions of mountain trails
Some shows are so good that galleries keep bringing them back every year.
That’s the case with Mark Gibson, a Montana painter best known for his paintings of tipis. According to Mountain Trails Gallery owner Adam Warner, Gibson is such a fan favorite that his show has become an annual affair.
When journalist Rod Hicks started digging into why people don’t trust information from reputable news outlets, he turned to Wyoming.
On your mark
Get set. Go.
The annual Teton Mountaineering Cache Creek to Game Creek Trail Run returns Saturday for its 39th year.
The race will kick off at 8 a.m. in Snow King Mountain Resort’s upper parking lot. From there runners will make their way over Cache Creek, across the Game Creek Divide and then down and out along the Game Creek trail until finishing at the Game Creek trailhead.
Shop for mudpots
Pottery, prints and paintings, oh my!
The Art Association of Jackson Hole is back with its popular two-day Teton Mudpots sale.
The sidewalk sale will offer crafts from artists who create in Art Association studios. The event is also a fundraiser — 30% of sales support Art Association studios.
People who frequent contemporary art galleries generally know what to expect when they visit one: paintings, sculpture, works on and of paper, and perhaps some installation art or a video piece.
When drag queen Aurora found out that an LGBTQ+ pride group would be walking in the 38th annual Old West Days parade, she knew it was the perfect opportunity to introduce her drag persona to the public.
Wander into the Teton County Fairgrounds at any point this week or weekend and you’ll find an unfamiliar scene: A reenactment of a trappers rendezvous, now-outdated annual gatherings from the 19th century that attracted mountain men looking to trade and refurbish supplies.
Sip mountain brews
Old West Days will include a parade and live music, but hops heaven will be in the Old West Brew Fest tent from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday on Town Square.
More than 20 breweries are slated to have offerings. The brewers will be competing for the Golden Boot award, so as you pick up tasting tokens on the way in make sure to grab a ballot so sure your voice is heard. The tent will be bordered by beer garden areas on the east and west, so dress for the weather.
A trope exists in writing — almost a stereotype — that characters and stories appear to the author, inexplicable in their origin. The vision of the muse visiting an unsuspecting authorial vessel dates back to the Greeks, to the roots of Western storytelling, if not further.
Flex your muscles
Ready to get down and dirty?
Jackson’s annual Ultimate Towner Obstacle Course — an event that bears a striking resemblance to the ever-popular Tough Mudder races, albeit sans electrocution — is returning Sunday. Mud is sure to fly and injuries will hopefully be minimal as Teton County’s hardos crawl through mud, climb over walls, swing from ropes and clamber over other obstacles as they compete in the fast class or the fun class.
If you frequent Pearl Street Bagels in Wilson for morning coffees and shmears, you will have noticed that one of the friendliest smiles behind the counter — that of Kat Clauson — has been missing the past few months.
