The 29th Annual Western Visions®, presented by the National Museum of Wildlife Art, is one of the signature events of the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival. Top contemporary wildlife artists – and collectors – from around the world will be congregating at the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Hole, Wyo. The museum has carefully curated a field of living artists working with animal forms in a variety of media.  The money raised from this fundraiser supports the Museum. The week’s events, offered at the Museum’s award-winning facility across from the National Elk Refuge, draw an international crowd to this critically acclaimed gathering. During Fall Arts Festival (and year-round), the Museum is a hub for art lovers, wildlife and outdoor enthusiasts, and more. John Banovich will present his new original oil painting "The Vanishing", oil on belgian linen, 8 x 10 in, $2,700.
