As the Aspens turn to gold, the town of Jackson on the Snake River, nestled between the Tetons and the Gros Ventre Mountains, hosts its 38 Fall Arts Festival from September 7–18th. This premier art festival of the Rocky Mountain West features nationally and internationally known artists, architects and designers who share a love of the American West. All year long the Jackson community’s committed support for the arts is shown through the activities of the non-profit Center for the Arts, the National Museum of Wildlife Art and over 15 fine art galleries in town. In September it is the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival that brings artists and art lovers to this world class destination for all the arts—fine art, interiors, fashion, architecture, music, local cuisine, and locally crafted beverages.

Palates and Palettes is a free Fall Arts Festival signature event from 5–7 pm on Friday, September 9th.

FALL ARTS FESTIVAL FEATURED ARTIST — TROY COLLINS

This year, Troy Collins of Mountain Trails Gallery is the Fall Arts Festival’s featured artist. A nationally renowned western landscape impressionist and one of the top sellers in previous QuickDraw auctions, Troy is inspired by the regional landscape of Montana and Wyoming with Aspen trees one of his favorite subjects. The artist creates a unique visual experience for the viewer with his use of warm, vibrant colors and direct application of oil paint with a palette knife to the canvas. The dynamic nature of his paintings moves the viewer to experience a flood of emotions and conveys the artist’s love of nature.
