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 56 years. The staff, board, instructors, and volunteers provided visual art experiences to the local community, including low income or at-risk youth and outreach sessions for more than 30 different service organizations in the valley.
Comprised of five studios, an art supply store, 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 local, regional, national and international artists, in shows throughout the year, and welcomes at least 1,200 visitors annually.
We produce many art events including Art Fair Jackson Hole, Takin’ It To the Streets fair, Teton Mudpots Studio sales, Whodunnit? Anonymous Art Sale & Show, 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.
The Art Association is pleased to thank the Wyoming Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts for our awarded CARES Act Funding received in 2020.
