“Each year, the selected artists bring their finest collections to picturesque Jackson Hole to show and sell their pieces, each accompanied by a unique story, to the more than 4,500 visitors who enter the showroom over the course of the event to experience the festive, one-of-a-kind shopping opportunity,” according to the producer.

“Guests of the Western Design Exhibit & Sale sip wine while they mingle with artists and art lovers and peruse the 28,000 square feet filled with furnishings, fashion and accessories that reflect the best of the Old and New West.”

The event is part of the two-week Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival, which attracts an estimated 30,000 visitors.

The exhibit features 70 wood objects from the Center’s collection in Philadelphia.

“These works stem from a love of wood and display a rich variety of wood types. Processes are varied, too, including wood-turned vessels as well as more sculptural forms. Many celebrate the natural beauty of wood, evident in rich warm-brown tones and assorted grain patterns, typical of materials gathered around the globe,” the museum said in a statement.
