What’s to come for Trio Fine Art

Dear Trio Fine Art Friends & Family,

Well, it’s been one heck of a ride! 
2017 marks thirteen summers together as Trio Fine Art. What started as three artists joining forces has morphed into a gallery experience we could have never predicted. Over the years, the Trio has included six artists who hosted over fifty exhibitions. In our simple space, thousands of paintings and drawings were shared with Jackson Hole and her visitors. We hosted the work of one of our heroes, Russell Chatham, and many of our other talented friends: Molly Hirschfield, September Vhay, Lee Riddell, Greg McHuron, Kay Stratman, Shannon Troxler Thal, Matt Montagne, Eliot Goss, and others. A fun community has grown up around this space that has been used for receptions, parties, dancing-with-the-stars practice, raptor bird demonstrations, filming, lectures, art lessons, cups of tea, and lots of smiles. For us, Trio Fine Art has been much more than a business. It had become a closely-knitted partnership where we celebrated and supported each other’s creativity. It has been a place to express our shared love for beauty, art, and a deep connection with the landscape. 
As everything changes over time, things at Trio Fine Art are too. Instead of remaining as a trio, we are all excited to be taking this opportunity to each explore new creative pursuits. Rest assured, there’s no drama to report – We are still dear friends and we are all still painting. You will continue to see much of all of us and our imagery. 
Under the new brand of Turner Fine Art, the gallery will continue Trio’s commitment to excellence and the reputation that has made our gallery one of the friendliest in Jackson Hole. 
To all of you: THANK YOU For supporting us, coming out to shows, sharing a glass of wine, buying paintings, reading our blog, and most of all, for being a part of our gallery community. The best part about making art is sharing art, and it has been an absolute honor to share it with you all. It’s hard to express how much each and every one of you has meant to us, and we never could have made it this far without your energy, friendship and love.

What’s next ?

Jennifer Hoffman After so many years enjoying the wonderful collectors and supporters of Trio, Jennifer is delighted that she will continue to have her work represented at Turner Fine Art and plans to have an exhibition at the gallery in 2018. She is working to expand her representation around the country, with some new locations in the works. Her artwork will also be included in an upcoming book from North Light Books titled Pure Color 2: the Best of Pastel.  Publication is scheduled for early 2019. You can keep up to date with Jennifer on social media (Facebook: JLHoffmanFineArt; Instagram: @JHoffmanWY) and at her website JLHoffmanFineArt.com.

Bill Sawczuk Bill will remain a presence in the Jackson art community, although his work can now be found at Trailside Galleries. We hope to continue to see his warm and knowing smile as he logs the miles on his walk, as we work with him and Jen to continue the blog Behind the Brushes, and during the wonderful art events around town.

Kathryn Turner has been asked to be the featured artist at the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition and is focused on building a body of work to present. She will continue to share her work, with the help of Barbara Strehler, in the same gallery space but with a new shingle, Turner Fine Art. Keep up to date with Kathryn via her social media as we go through the re-branding process! Facebook @KathrynMapesTurner; Instagram @KathrynMapesTurner.

We hope you will continue to come visit the gallery and stay in touch with each of us. We love seeing you and hearing from you! At the gallery, we have an exciting line up of exhibitions and events for 2018, with guest artists from around the world.
