The Annual Western Visions®, presented by the National Museum of Wildlife Art, is the signature event of the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival. Top contemporary wildlife artists and collectors from around the world will be congregating at the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The museum has carefully curated an exhibit of artists whose work is in the permanent collection. The money raised from this fundraiser supports the Museum. The week’s events, offered at the Museum’s award-winning facility across from the National Elk Refuge, draw an international crowd to this critically acclaimed gathering. During Fall Arts Festival (and year-round), the Museum is a hub for art lovers, wildlife and outdoor enthusiasts, and more.
Gerald Peters Gallery is delighted to present works by John Banovich at this year’s Seattle Art Fair. Taking animals as subjects, Banovich creates paintings that faithfully depict animals in their natural environments, and the myriad narratives that play out in their daily lives, and life cycles. An ardent conservationist, Banovich has worked tirelessly throughout his artistic career to advocate for the world’s most threatened creatures – particularly in Africa. At the fair, the gallery will show a selection of Banovich’s recent works, including Enthronement of a King, a monumental work Banovich has created in homage to the African lion, which dovetails with his upcoming exhibition, King of Beasts, at the Nevada Museum of Art, opening November 9, 2019.
