Jackson Hole Fine Art Fair Announces 2019 Exhibitors List

Jackson Hole Fine Art Fair (JHFAF) is pleased to announce the exhibitors for its inaugural edition, hosted on September 12-15, 2019 at the Snow King Sports and Events Center (100 E Snow King Ave). Surrounded by the Teton mountain ranges, the city of Jackson Hole is an unparalleled, non-coastal art destination. The four-day fair will include works from 50 national and renowned exhibitors, carefully chosen for their curated booths which best reflect Jackson Hole’s distinctive American tastes. The galleries will be bringing in works by established, American artists from both Contemporary and Modern, as well as Western, Native American and Wildlife genres.

Fair Director Rick Friedman says, “We are so excited to provide the local arts community with such a wide range of significant Modern and Contemporary artworks, many of which have not yet been seen in Jackson Hole. With 50 exhibitors, we have a completely sold out show that demonstrates the respect and enthusiasm the international art world has for the Jackson Hole arts scene. The fair presents a fresh selection of over a thousand important pieces and I can’t wait for fairgoers to experience this unforgettable event” 

Spanning from every region of the United States, the exhibitors hail from 29 different cities, including two local galleries, Tayloe Piggott Gallery and Diehl Gallery. The JHFAF exhibitors represent nationally acclaimed artists like Thomas Hart Benton, Emil Bisttram, Deborah Butterfield, Alexander Calder, Raymond Jonson, Jeremy Kidd, Elaine de Kooning, John Nieto and Ed Ruscha.

Recognized for its wildlife scene and natural beauty, Jackson Hole offers an unprecedented art experience for all. The town’s rocky landscape, Western charm, dedicated community and world class museums create a uniquely American art scene.

PRIDE MONTH PROMOTIONS: CALIFORNIA HISTORICAL SOCIETY, CONTEMPORARY JEWISH MUSEUM, OAKLAND MUSEUM OF CALIFORNIA

Three Bay Area cultural organizations – California Historical Society (CHS), The Contemporary Jewish Museum (CJM), and Oakland Museum of California (OMCA)– are joining together to celebrate PRIDE month with a wide range of programs at each institution, including exhibitions, a lecture series, special programming, and events to help tell the unique stories of the LGBTQA community and shine a light on its historical importance to the region, state, and nation.

This is the first time these three organizations have worked together to promote special programming, also complementing two ongoing exhibitions focused on LGBTQA communities: at The CJM, Show Me as I Want to Be Seen, through July 7, and at OMCA, Queer California: Untold Stories, through August 11. Over the weekend of June 22–23, members of each organization will receive reciprocal access to all three institutions. The California Historical Society programming includes a lecture series held every Tuesday evening during PRIDE month beginning at 6 pm at the CHS galleries at 678 Mission Street featuring authors, archivists, photographers, filmmakers, and historians. The lecture topics include a panel discussion (June 7) Understanding LGBTQA Histories Through Collections and Archives; a talk about Transgender History: The Roots of Today’s Revolution (June 11) with award-winning scholar and filmmaker Susan Stryker; a film screening and discussion of Major! The life and campaigns of Miss Major Griffin-Gracy (June 18); and a presentation on California’s “Gay Revolution” in the Stonewall Era (June 25).

The Contemporary Jewish Museum’s current exhibition (on view through July 7), Show Me as I Want to Be Seen, asks how do we depict “the self” if it is unknowable, inherently constructed, and ever-changing? Positioning the work of French Jewish artist and writer Claude Cahun (1894–1954) and her lifelong lover and collaborator Marcel Moore (1892–1972) alongside ten contemporary artists—many of whom identify as LGBTQA and gender non-binary—Show Me as I Want to Be Seen examines the empowered representation of fluid and complex identity. The CJM will also host a one-day-only Zine Fest on June 9, featuring zines and comic art celebrating self-expression in all its forms. On June 20, The CJM will participate in Call and Responses: Curator Swap, a new progressive gallery talk in collaboration with CHS and the Museum of the African Diaspora, which will bring together educators and curators to examine work on view at the three museums in connection with PRIDE.

In addition to its exhibition, Queer California: Untold Stories (on view through August 11), which explores many of the untold narratives of California’s LGBTQA communities through contemporary art and history, the Oakland Museum of California will also host special events and film screenings during PRIDE month. This includes, among another programming, Friday Nights at OMCA on June 7 that features Queer California Drag Family Storytime (6-7 pm) and Queer California Film Series (7:30 pm);  In Conversation: Queer Cinema on June 14, a powerful conversation about the history of queer movie-making and the absence of queer stories from mainstream cinema; and In Conversation: Black Trans Women on Resilience and Strength on June 15, a multigenerational discussion on transgender rights and policies to help us imagine a safe and equitable queer future.

During the San Francisco PRIDE parade on June 30, staff members from each of the three institutions, in partnership with several other Bay Area cultural institutions, will march in the parade together as part of Museums with Pride.

To learn more about these and other PRIDE events being organized during the month of June, please visit each organization’s website www.californiahistoricalsociety.org,www.thecjm.org, and www.museumca.org.

Artist Pension Trust Announces Art Display

Carefully curated works are featured throughout the New York City building, including in Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group’s newest spaces, Manhatta and Bay Room

Artist Pension Trust (APT) is pleased to announce its new project at 28 Liberty Street, a 60-story skyscraper, located in Manhattan’s Financial District. APT artist works will be featured throughout Fosun International’s 28 Liberty building, including at Manhatta, the Danny Meyer-run Union Square Hospitality Group’s (USHG) newly-opened restaurant and bar, as well as Bay Room, USHG’s first-ever event space, both of which occupy the 60th floor of the building.

“Art has always been essential part of our restaurant designs,” says Meyer. “We are thrilled to include over 100 pieces of artwork from Artist Pension Trust in Manhatta and Bay Room, both by top local talent and established international artists. We love APT’s mission of helping artists and fostering a community between them, and we feel privileged to benefit from their meaningful work, and to share it with our guests.”

Featured artists in the space include Logan Grider, an Oregon-based artist and Theresa Hackett, a Los Angeles-based artist, who will both have their works featured inside Manhatta and Bay Room. Hackett’s work incorporates non-conventional materials to create hybrid landscapes while Grider’s pieces showcase an abstract theme.

“This partnership between APT, Fosun, and USHG is an exciting opportunity for our artist community,” says Zohar Elhanani, CEO of Artist Pension Trust. “We constantly seek new and exciting avenues to highlight the works of APT’s artists and the opportunity to showcase selected art throughout 28 Liberty and in both Manhatta and Bay Room, art that has been personally selected by Danny Meyer, will serve as fantastic exposure for our artists.”

Founded in 2004, APT (Artist Pension Trust) is a unique social initiative, designed to bring financial security and international exposure to a select group of emerging and established artists around the world. APT acts as a mutual assurance program, allowing participating artists to benefit from the sale of each other’s work — in essence, ensuring that the big-name artists behind blockbuster shows can support the work of talented peers still gaining art world recognition.

Since its foundation, APT has worked with some of the world’s leading contemporary artists, from Turner Prize winners to recipients of prestigious awards including the Prix de Rome and Deutsche Bank’s Artist of the Year. Works by APT artists have been loaned for exhibitions at the world’s leading institutions and have been prominent features of events including Art Basel and the Venice Biennale.

About Artist Pension Trust

Artist Pension Trust (APT) was established in 2004 to provide artists with added financial security at every stage of their career, through a unique, patented model that allows participants to benefit from one another’s success. The APT model ensures that 72% of the net proceeds from the sale of an artwork goes back to its artist and their peers: 40% to the artist who created the work, and 32% shared among artists in their regional group.
