Art Heist; DIY Art Bazaar & Open Studio!

Friday, November 16th, Jackson’s Art Association will NOT hold its popular “Out of the Woods” silent auction. It WILL host the Jackson Hole Art Heist, a silent auction with a bit of a burglary twist.  Over 250 pieces of artwork by some of Jackson’s best-loved artists, as well as juried artists from around the country, will be up for sale. Ceramics, jewelry, furniture, and fashion–even multimedia works will be available. Security cameras are on, in case you’re thinking “cat burglar.”

I’m just kidding!

So what’s the twist?  Twenty-five “Heist” tickets will be sold at a price of $250 each. Purchase yours early when you arrive between 5-6:00 pm, and “steal away” with an auction item of your choice. That leaves 225 works of art available to folks with more modest budgets and big hearts. You can chip in, you can bring home some art! Noted artists from many of Jackson’s best galleries are contributing work; expect to find everything from landscapes to moccasins to science-inspired art.

Want to win something good? Raffle items include Jackson Hole Mountain Resort lift tickets, an overnight stay at Triangle X, Cowboy Up Hang Gliding certificates, dinner for two at the Snake River Grill and more. A very easy $5 admission gets you in the door to this altered and bunches-of-fun art event!  For more information, contact Amy Fradley at; or phone 307-733-8792.
