27th Annual Western Visions Show a Success
More than 400 people from around the world attended the National Museum of Wildlife Art 27th Annual Western Visions® fundraiser, including top contemporary and traditional wildlife artists and collectors. The museum showcased a combination of well-established, top-selling artists, and emerging talents who are the next generation of leading wildlife artists. Western Visions is a cornerstone of the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival.
This year’s event was a huge success with total gross art sales estimated to be more than $720,000. Top sellers include “Living on the Edge,” an oil on canvas painting of a gyrfalcon by Swedish artist Lars Jonsson, and a gorgeous bronze sculpture “Three Old Bull Elephants” by Rob Glen. Glen traveled from Tanzania to show his work at the National Museum of Wildlife Art.
“I’d like to thank all of our generous sponsors and gifted artists for helping make this year’s event a huge success,” says James C. McNutt, President and CEO, National Museum of Wildlife Art. “I heard from many of our trustees, collectors and guests that the quality of this year’s show was the highest yet. I know we have many happy owners of amazing wildlife art to start or add to their collections. We thank all of them for their support of the National Museum of Wildlife Art. We simply couldn’t do what we do without Western Visions.”
