Diehl Gallery

presents 

The 16th Annual Fête

07.03.20 - 07.21.20

 

Since its founding in 2001, Diehl Gallery has been a focal point in Jackson Hole’s art community—a place to celebrate and engage with locals, visitors, avid collectors and casual art viewers. We have forged a space for contemporary art in our small mountain town and we are honored to share this place. We proudly represent masters found in renowned museum collections worldwide along with emerging and mid-career artists whose names we have helped to make familiar.Each year for 15 years, we have celebrated the opening of the summer season in Jackson with several hundred friends, clients, locals and visitors at the Fête, a provocative exhibition featuring new works by gallery artists who are actively shaping the meaning of “contemporary art” in the 21st Century. For the first time, however, we will not host an opening celebration.  This feels sad and tragic on so many levels. However, all of our safety and health is paramount, and we won't put that at risk. We are confident we will all meet, share smiles and stories and discuss art and life under better, safer circumstances in the future.

For the 16th Annual Fête at Diehl Gallery, along with our other exciting exhibitions this summer, please call us and make a private appointment to visit and reconnect. We will continue to host our exhibitions on our website and on Artsy, and as always, our exhibitions will benefit nonprofit organizations.

This year, the Fête will support First in Family, a scholarship fund managed by the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole.  First in Family scholarships are two-year awards for high school students in Teton County, Wyoming who do not have a family history of higher education. Recipients are chosen by the end of junior year of high school, and scholarships are awarded upon enrollment in College. These scholarships help students realize their ambitions for college education.  To learn more, click here.

We are currently only open by appointment. Please call us to schedule a visit. 

In an effort to keep our staff, artists and guests safe and healthy, we will require everyone to wear masks while in the gallery. Masks will be provided for guests who do not have their own. We will also provide hand sanitizer upon entry, and we will sanitize surfaces in the gallery between visitors. We greatly appreciate your understanding and thank you in advance for complying with our requirements.

Thank you for supporting artists, galleries and small businesses in this challenging time!
