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
