Press Release

Since 2007, the Jackson Hole Art Auction has been recognized as one of the premier art events in the country, defined by the high standard of works offered in a variety of genres including wildlife, sporting, figurative, landscape and Western art by both renowned past masters and contemporary artists. The JHAA is a signature event of Jackson Hole’s annual Fall Arts Festival and attracts collectors from across the country as well as abroad. With locations in Scottsdale, AZ, Jackson Hole, WY, Santa Fe, NM and New York, the auction principals, Trailside Galleries and Gerald Peters Gallery, bring over 100 years of combined experience and expertise to the event.

John Banovich will present his new original oil painting,"Cat and Mouse" - 32" x 48" Oil on Belgian Linen | Valued $30,000 - $50,000 “Amba,” as he is known to the Udege people of far eastern Russia; strong, silent and deadly, the Siberian Tiger or Amur tiger is perfectly adapted to the land where the jungles of Asia meet the boreal forests of the north. Although larger prey like Sika and Wild Boar make up the main source of this big cats diet, like all cats it seems to have a magnetic draw to anything that moves, making a good old fashion game of “Cat and Mouse,” irresistible. – John Banovich Artist/Conservationist
