2019 FAF - NMWA

William Alther’s “Mythic Horizon,” a 40-by 40-inch oil, is in the Western Visions Art Show and Sale.

What many of you have been waiting for — the Western Visions Show and Sale — kicks off tonight with an artist party from 6 to 9 p.m. at the National Museum of Wildlife Art. Those who attend can meet and mingle with the artists, take a look at what's for sale and place bids.

A special presentation by three artists participating in the Art Show and Sale — George Bumann, Rob Glen, and T. Allen Lawson — will present from 10 to 11:30 a.m. today at National Museum of Wildlife Art. The talk is free to attend.

The 32nd annual Western Visions Show and Sale starts at 5 p.m. Friday.

The Jackson Hole Fine Art Fair — a new addition to the Fall Arts Festival — also opens today with a "sneak peak" (organizers are spelling it "peak," like the mountain, but it's a "peek," like behind the scenes) at 3 p.m. today at Snow King Events Center.

Rights to first glance at the festival costs $75 and gains a ticket holder access to contemporary, Western, wildlife and Native American art, as well as a special event reception where the 2019 Lifetime Achievement award will be given to the late John Nieto.

Last but not least, don't miss Astoria Fine Art's free gallery reception from 2 to 5 p.m. featuring new works and 20-plus artists.

Did you nab a copy of the News&Guide's Fall Arts Festival section? If you're looking for a hard copy, swing by Teton Media Works Headquarters (really, it's just a building but we like to think of it as "headquarters") to grab a copy, or swing by the QuickDraw Art Sale and Auction at 9 a.m. Saturday on Town Square, where we'll be handing out copies.

Or read it all here.
