“Takin’ it to the Streets” Art Fair. Jackson, WY

The day after I painted with the Teton Plein Air Painters my husband and I went to the Art Fair in the Jackson Hole Town Square. This is a busy two weeks and there are lots of events as part of the annual Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival. Tents fill Town Square and happy shoppers and tourists fill the streets.

What a great turn out to see the many local artists! Tents were full of pottery, jewelry, paintings, painted tiles, pillows, leather crafts, and much more that I’ve already forgotten. A number of local restaurants also had stations set up on the grass in the park area with tiny samplings of their fare. For $3 or $4 you could get a delicious slider or shrimp skewer. We managed to spend our $20 worth of tickets quickly and everything was delicious.

A large white tent housed a wine tasting and auction sponsored by the Rotary Club. This is a photo of wine you can “win” in a raffle. I love the idea of wrapping each bottle so what you get is a surprise!

My husband and I went to church before this event and the service was great, then on to the Art Fair which was so much fun. And the day got even better when I ran into a couple that I had met the day before when I was out painting with the Teton Plein Air Painters. Read more about the outing. They asked me about the painting they saw me creating in the park and inquired about purchasing it!  We made a plan for them to come by our house the next day . . . .
