The Art Association of Jackson Hole is dedicated to encouraging a vital, creative community by providing everyone with exposure to, education in and enjoyment of a wide variety of art experiences.
The Art Association has made visual art a vital part of creative life in Jackson Hole for over 51 years. The staff, board, instructors, and volunteers provided visual art experiences to over 25,000 people in 2014 alone, including 154 low income or at-risk youth and outreach for 17 different service organizations in the valley
Comprised of five studios and a gallery, our facility provides over 10,000 square-feet of space to learn, practice, and exhibit art. Beginner to master level instruction is offered in the mediums of painting, drawing, ceramics, sculpture, photography, silversmithing, glass, printmaking, blacksmithing, mixed media and more.
Our contemporary art gallery features hundreds of local, regional, national and international artists, in 8-10 shows throughout the year, and welcomes 1,200 visitors annually
We produce many art events including Art Fair Jackson Hole, Teton Mudpot Ceramics sales, Whodunnit? and the Art Heist where locals and visitors alike exhibit and sell their work.
Operating with the belief that everyone is creative, the Art Association’s highest priority is to make visual arts education accessible and affordable to people of all ages and abilities. As research has proven the positive outcomes associated with integrating visual art education across all disciplines through the STEM to STEAM movement (science, technology, engineering, ART, and math), the Art Association continues to emphasize the ability of visual arts training to strengthen and enhance the learning experience for children.
As a non profit, we offer individual memberships, and business sponsorships which provide many benefits including class discounts, open studio eligibility and tickets to our art events.
As the leading visual arts education resource in Northwest Wyoming, we are able to provide this kind of programming thanks to the ongoing support of our community of volunteers, donors, sponsors, foundations, and corporations.
