2022 Featured Painting
The Fall Arts Festival and the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce are proud to announce this year's Fall Arts Festival featured piece: "The Grandest Journey" by Troy Collins. It is a 60x60 oil on canvas piece in Troy's signature style - bright colors and rich textures of impressionistic Western landscape - with a special nod to Jackson through his depiction of the trees & the Tetons. The artist skillfully showcases the effects of light and shadow as well as a rich color palette to masterfully depict a crisp autumn Teton day.
“The Grandest Journey” will grace the 2022 Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival commemorative posters and the original painting is on display at Jackson’s historical Wort Hotel until it is offered for sale at the Jackson Hole QuickDraw auction on Saturday, Saturday, September 17, 2022.

Why Stay with the Wort
If you attend the Fall Arts Festival, The Wort is the best lodging option around. Aside from hosting the kick off event to Fall Arts Festival, Wine Down Wednesday & WIne Up for Fall Arts, The Wort is steps away from the finest art galleries, restaurants, and shopping. Also, what better place to stay than at the historic hotel featured as the 2022 Festival painting? Forbes Travel Guide recommends The Wort Hotel during September because of its proximity to all of the festival activities and local art galleries.
