Thousands of art-lovers attend the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival each year, scheduled this fall for Sept. 10-20.

Other events include an exhibition of Western furniture and home accessories, studio tours, a gallery walk, ranch tours, concerts, and a real estate auction.

One of the signature events of the festival is the National Museum of Wildlife Art's Western Visions fundraiser, Sept. 16-18, which includes a series of shows and sales of work by more than 150 artists, from photography to jewelry to miniatures. Demonstrations of painting and sculpting techniques are also on the program, along with a Wild West Artist Party, Sept. 17, 6:30 -10:30 p.m., $200.

Another element of the fundraiser is a morning photo safari to capture the landscapes and wildlife of Grand Teton National Park, Sept. 17, 6:30 a.m.-11 a.m., in the company of Western Visions artists Lindsay Scott and Leo E. Osborne. The adventure will be led by Wildlife Expeditions, a division of non-profit Teton Science Schools. The cost is $125 for members; $150 nonmembers. Call 307-732-5412 to register.
