Art Association unveils 50th Anniversary Art Fair Poster

(Jackson, Wyo.) - The Art Association announced that Brenda Swinney’s artwork “Pacific Creek Moose” has been chosen as the iconic image for our 50th Anniversary Art Fair. Each year, the Art Association chooses from a gallery of submissions for the image that will represent the Art Fair throughout all of the promotional efforts. During the Art Fair, posters and tote bags will be sold featuring this wonderful artwork. Swinney describes “Pacific Creek Moose" as a composite of views seen while floating the Pacific Creek to Deadman's Bar stretch of the Snake River through Grand Teton National Park. Stunning perspectives of the Tetons are framed by pines along the river's edge.” Along with being an artist, Brenda Swinney is a licensed, professional fly-fishing guide with nineteen years of experience on the South Fork of the Snake River. In the off-season, she spends her time in her Kansas City, MO studio painting landscapes from the Yellowstone / Teton areas. “I have fallen in love with the landscape here in the Yellowstone Teton territory. Many hours, days and years spent guiding on these rivers provide the inspiration for my paintings. I am awed by the beauty of these places, and through the process of painting deepen my connection to these landscapes and rivers,” she said. Celebrating the 50th Art Fair this year, the Art Association brings fine art to life each summer in downtown Jackson. More than 150 artists, local and from across the country, feature fine art pieces in mediums such as jewelry, ceramics, painting, photography, sculpture, and metalwork. Each artist is hand-selected by a professional jury of local artists, curators, and gallery owners. The Art Association’s Art Fairs are being held July 8 through 10 and August 12 through 14 in Miller Park in downtown Jackson. *Feature Photo: 50th Anniversary Art Fair Poster. h/t Art Association of Jackson Hole / Pitchengine Communities* #buckrail #news
