The National Museum of Wildlife Art presented it 25th annual Western Visions event (August 18-September 26, 2012), and more than 150 painters and sculptors participated, along with 2,000-plus enthusiastic supporters. PleinAir staff member Charlie Bogusz reports on the big event.
The annual Western Visions is one of the signature events of the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival in Jackson, Wyoming. The wide variety of events in the festival raised money to support educational programming at the National Museum of Wildlife Art. Located across from the National Elk Refuge, the museum drew an international crowd to this critically acclaimed gathering, showcasing several of the nation’s leading wildlife artists, who contributed paintings or sculptures to support the fundraiser.
On the morning of September 13, Richard Loffler’s heroic sculpture “Buffalo Trails” was unveiled on the museum’s new sculpture trail. For more information, visit www.westernvisions.org.
