PUMPKINS ON FIRE AND #WISHYOUWEREHERE EXHIBIT OPENING PARTY
DATE: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2018
Bring the whole family to the Art Association of Jackson Hole for an art-inspired evening of fall activities with Pumpkins on Fire and an Opening Party for the Exhibit #wishyouwerehere.
PUMPKINS ON FIRE
4:30 PM TO TWILIGHT
Start Friday evening outside with the Art Association’s Ceramics Studio Manager Sam Dowd. Sam will be on hand to assist people with glazing pottery pumpkins or using a traditional horse hair technique to create a unique pattern, before firing the pumpkins in a Raku kiln. Acrylic paints will be on hand for those who prefer to color their ceramic pumpkins, which are also guaranteed not to rot. If you’re not inclined to paint or glaze, additional artist-made pumpkins will be available for purchase. Ceramic pumpkins will be priced by size ranging from $10 to $40. Your pumpkin will also come with a raffle ticket to win a finished, artist-designed jack-o-lantern. Proceeds support the Art Association’s Ceramics Studio.
#WISHYOUWEREHERE EXHIBIT OPENING PARTY
Next dust off your selfie stick and explore five backdrop environments at the #wishyouwerehere Exhibit. Partygoers can dress up, use props, and position themselves in front of the artful installations for selfies. Polaroid cameras will be available for instant photos at $1 per shot. The Art Association’s Gallery will be filled with music spun by Mr. Whipple, and fun snacks will be on hand.
