Mission

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.

About

The Art Association has made visual art a vital part of creative life in Jackson Hole for over 53 years. The staff, board, instructors, and volunteers provided visual art experiences to over 21,000 people in 2016 alone, including 228 low income or at-risk youth and outreach sessions for 23 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 160 of local, regional, national and international artists, in 7 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 Holiday Bazaar where locals and visitors alike exhibit and sell their work.

As a nonprofit, 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.
