Each year, the folx in Jackson Hole WY host a week-long art festival + the Western Design Conference (from the Mountain Living magazine publisher). The WDC juries an exhibition of contemporary functional western fine art. It’s a crazy high-end art event complete with fashion show… indoor exhibition of ~`100 artists and then retail booths. Furniture… wearables… jewelry… sculpture… etc. Sent in my application along with three “representative” samples. Good news for this one is that you can produce a one-off new piece of work if you get in – doesn’t have to be the piece(s) submitted with the application. I sent in examples: 6-Petal, Sunrise Desert Rose, and Turtle.
UPDATE April 5: ACCEPTED. Wow, this was a real shocker. Good news… I’m in… Bad news… I’m in so now have to figure out what to exhibit. Considering a retail booth. In talking to the event manager, 5-6000 people last year with ~$1M in sales.
