This coming Monday, August 25th The Deck will be serving up cocktails, food and views, but also will play host to View22, an art project with a purpose created by local artists benefiting the Jackson Hole Land Trust. From the top of the Bridger Gondola, in the valley below you can see over 20 Land Trust protected properties, so for a special Deck happy hour View 22 will feature a plein air demonstration by artists Travis Walker and Kay Northup.
Launched in the summer of 2013 and born from an idea proposed by the artists of Trio Fine Art, the View22 project captured the attention of local, regional, and national media outlets as Trio artists Jennifer Hoffman, Kathryn Turner, and Bill Sawczuk shared their experiences of painting Land Trust protected properties.
The 2014 project welcomes three additional artists, selected by jury – Kay Northup, represented at Trailside Galleries; Lee Riddell, represented at WRJ Home; and Travis Walker, represented at Altamira Fine Art.
The project will culminate with an exhibit in December that will benefit the Land Trust and future land protection projects in Jackson Hole. Last year’s show raised nearly $8,000 for the Jackson Hole Land Trust. This year’s show will be held at the National Museum of Wildlife Art and celebrated at a Mix’d Media event on Thursday, December 11th.
