Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival Featured Artwork Revealed

Jackson Hole, Wyo. – April 13, 2015 – A classic cowboy on horseback against the jagged Tetons is the subject of "13 Minutes from Eternity," the painting by artist Bill Schenck selected by the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival as its featured artwork for this year’s event, Sept. 9 – 20, 2015. The iconic 50-by-50-inch oil on canvas image, presented in Schenck’s trademark style that incorporates photo-realism and pop art techniques, will be on display throughout the festival and auctioned on Sept. 19, as well as appearing on the official 2015 Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival poster. The festival is no stranger to Schenck, whose painting "Waco" was selected as the featured artwork for the very first Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival in 1985. 

 “We’re so excited to have Billy Schenck as our featured artist for 2015,” says Maureen Murphy, director of special events for the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce, organizer of the festival. “Billy has only continued to grow in popularity and critical respect since we tapped him 30 years ago, even as the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival has grown in size and scope. Having his artwork representing the festival this year should create a formidable pairing – and I expect poster sales to be through the roof!”

 “It’s like getting reinvited to be the host of the Oscars after a 30-year hiatus,” said Schenck of his return to the featured slot at the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival in a recent article in the Jackson Hole News & Guide. 

Schenck’s work has long been nationally admired. Early in his career, he became known for presenting Western cinematic imagery with a distinctive reductivist approach that uses color side by side in a flat style without blending. The artist, who works out of Santa Fe, grew up in Arizona and Wyoming before joining the New York art scene in the early ‘70s, where he was part of the original New York school of photo realism, with his first New York gallery show selling out when he was just 24. His work can be found in numerous major collections throughout the world, including the Smithsonian Institution, Denver Art Museum and The Autry Museum of Western Heritage, and has been the subject of seven museum retrospectives and two books. 

Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival posters featuring the Schenck painting will be available for sale throughout the event, and festivalgoers will have an opportunity to meet the artist on Sept. 16 for a poster signing at Altamira Fine Art. The original oil painting for the 2015 poster image will be up for auction on Sept. 19 as part of the 20th annual QuickDraw Art Sale and Auction in Jackson Town Square. Beginning Memorial Day weekend, the original "13 Minutes to Eternity" will be on display in the lobby of The Wort Hotel in Jackson for all to see up until the Quick Draw event.

The 2015 Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival includes a varied combination of visual, contemporary, culinary, Western, landscape, wildlife and Native American arts on display in venues from galleries and the museum to the Jackson Town Square. The 31st annual festival will offer visitors more than 50 family-friendly events, many of them free, surrounded by the Teton Mountain Range in its autumn colors – with the opportunity to purchase original artworks from cowboy to cutting-edge contemporary. The dates for the Fall Arts Festival have recently changed to include opening a day earlier than originally scheduled with the "Western Visons: Wild. Wearable. Art." luncheon, show and sale organized by the National Museum of Wildlife Art on Sept. 9.

Conveniently located just 20 minutes from the Jackson Hole Airport, Jackson, Wyo., is served by major airlines including Delta, United, American and SkyWest. Reservation information for Jackson’s numerous hotels, as well as a complete schedule of Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival events may be found below.

Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival Signature Wine

The Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce is pleased to work with Jackson Hole Winery to present the 2015 Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival signature wine. Chamber special events staff and volunteer committee members Andi Caruso, Maureen Murphy, Megan Jenkins, and Renee Leone helped to bottle the wine in early July.

Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival Announces New Collaboration with Local Winery

Jackson Hole, Wyo. – August 19, 2015 – The Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival has partnered with local winemakers Jackson Hole Winery to present the signature wine for this year’s festival, September 9 – 20, 2015. In the past, the festival has had its commemorative wine for the event bottled in California, but “This collaboration with Jackson Hole Winery to have the wine bottled locally allows us to bring an additional only-in-Jackson aspect to the festival,” says Maureen Murphy, director of special events for the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce, organizer of the festival.

Jackson Hole Winery has selected a Chardonnay and a Syrah as the white and red signature wine offerings for this year’s event. Custom labels on the bottles display the 2015 fall arts festival featured artist Billy Schenck’s oil painting, “13 Minutes From Eternity,” also depicted on the festival’s 2015 official poster. The poster will be available at auction in Jackson’s Town Square on Sept. 19, following the festival’s popular QuickDraw event. 

The Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival Chardonnay comes from Russian River Valley in Sonoma County, Calif., a region known for producing some of the finest Chardonnays in the world. The wine is produced in natural French oak barrels allowing it to age without introducing a lot of oak flavor. The winery describes the Chardonnay as clean, crisp, and fruit-forward. It offers green apple and citrus notes on the nose and is medium-bodied, filled with pear and green apple on the palate, with juicy acidity on the finish.

The Syrah comes from Dry Creek Valley, also in Sonoma County, Calif., and is rich in color with a nose like a bowl of dark berry fruit including black cherry, raspberry and plum. Jackson Hole Winery suggests the Syrah pairs perfectly with game meats, such as elk, venison, buffalo and moose – perfect for the fall season. 

“Our Syrah has always been a star. In the past, we have discussed coming out with the single varietal, so when the Fall Arts Festival approached us to make a wine for them it was the perfect time to do so,” says Jackson Hole Winery Vintner Anthony Schroth. “It is a beautiful wine that will benefit from some bottle aging but is also tasting fantastic right now. We are very excited to be working with the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival,” Schroth adds. “We are grateful to have the opportunity to make wines for the festival and give back to the community. They are a great organization and do so much for the town of Jackson.”

The Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival signature wines can be purchased at The Liquor Store, Dornan’s, and Westside Wine & Spirits. Out-of-towners can order bottles online at bottledwyoming.com/collections/jackson-hole-winery. The Chardonnay will retail at $24, the Syrah at $26. The commemorative is a favorite festival souvenir for attendees, with part of the proceeds from the sale of the wines designated to support the festival. 

Located next to Spring Creek in Jackson in what was originally the Spring Creek Dairy of Jackson Hole in the 1940s, Jackson Hole Winery grew out of the Schroth family’s longtime Jackson Hole roots blended with vintner Anthony’s Napa Valley winemaking experience. The family produces and cellars its wines at an altitude of 6,229 feet at the base of the Grand Tetons where the cool mountain air preserves the wine’s aromatics through a slow fermenting and aging process, allowing the wine to develop its distinctive personality.
