The last event of the art festival in Jackson Hole is the quick draw. It takes place on the town square on Saturday morning. There are numerous artists that participate, mostly painters, only 2 sculptors. They are given 90 mins to create the artwork, then it is auctioned off. 90 minutes is not very long to paint something, especially paint something good.
Personally, painting on a time schedule, and having hundreds of people watching, would send me over the edge.
The quick draw and the auction are a great fund raiser for the art festival. Part of the money from the sold work goes to the festival and part goes to the artist.
The two sculptors said they would take their pieces and give them the finishing touches.
It was fun to watch all this exceptional art being created, right there. That’s the allure of a quick draw event.
A number of art shows have a quick draw, if you ever get the chance to watch one, don’t miss it.
Today we are on the road driving to Cody, WY. I am excited to be going there. My favorite museum is in Cody, The Plains Indian museum that is part of the Buffalo Bill museum. Hopefully they still allow photography so I can get some pictures of all the cool stuff they have there.
