Showcasing masterworks of the American West, the Jackson Hole Art Auction (JHAA) is a signature event of the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival held each September in Jackson, Wyoming. The 13th annual Jackson Hole Art Auction includes important work by highly sought-after contemporary Western artists from Martin Grelle and Logan Maxwell Hagege to Z.S. Liang and Glenn Dean. In addition to the high caliber of Western art, the JHAA is also world-renowned for its unbeatable selection of wildlife offerings.
The 2019 sale is no exception, with fresh-to-market pieces by Bob Kuhn, Carl Rungius, Wilhelm Friedrich Kuhnert, Tucker Smith and many more. Session I of the 2019 sale will take place on Friday, September 13, and will feature high-quality pieces at an accessible price point. Perfect for the emerging collector, the Session I sale will be offered entirely at no reserve. Session II is scheduled for Saturday, September 14, and will include museum-quality pieces, with work by Oscar Berninghaus, Joseph Henry Sharp, Clark Hulings and Olaf Wieghorst, among others. Both sessions will be held at the Center for the Arts in Jackson, Wyoming.
“The art market in Jackson continues to grow as tourism swells throughout the region, and the town sees unprecedented growth in every sector. Each summer and fall bring a wave of new collectors, eager to acquire a piece of the Old West. While wildlife and Western art remain strong and steady, we have seen increased interest in early American illustrators and folk art—setting new world auction records for numerous artists in those genres.” – Madison Webb, auction coordinator, Jackson Hole Art Auction
