25 Fable's: Aesop's Animals Illustrated
Fri, October 14, 9:00AM - Sun, April 23, 5:00PM

“Aesop’s Fables” includes 25 local and national artists, each illustrating one of Aesop’s best known tales. Aesop is said to have lived about 620–560 BC and to have been a slave on the Greek Island of Samos, later freed by his master Iadmon. Aesop compiled fables originally have been passed down through oral tradition. They were among the first illustrated books to be produced, the earliest of which were produced in Bamberg, Germany, in 1461. “Aesop’s Fables” is a collaborative project curated by Associate Curator of Art and Research, Bronwyn Minton. This exhibit will be in keeping with the projects that Minton has been creating in Jackson over the past 13 years. These exhibits have been highly successful in creating a sense of community, both among the artists who participate and among those who appreciate their art.

Sandy Scott Retrospective
Sat, October 22, 9:00AM - Sat, April 16, 5:00PM

Sandy Scott received her formal art training at the Kansas City Art Institute and later worked as an animation background artist in the motion picture industry. She turned her attention to etchings and printmaking in the 1970’s and to sculpture in the 1980’s. Born in Dubuque, Iowa in 1943 and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma, she works today in Lander, Wyoming in a studio near the foundry that casts her bronzes. She also maintains studios on Lake of the Woods, Ontario, Canada, and in the mountains of northern Colorado. Sandy is an avid outdoorswoman who loves to hunt and fish. She has made 16 trips to Alaska as well as Europe, Russia, China and South America. Sandy believes that to be a good artist, she must conduct field work to know their subjects and accurately present their subjects to the viewer. Having experienced and lived what she depicts, her work is unquestionably authentic. More about this exhibit
