The 2017 Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival

Featured Artist

Mark Keathley is the featured artist of this year’s Fall Arts Festival. Mark has been enamored with mood, light, drama, and color for as long as he can remember. Adding those elements to artistic expression, it’s easy to see why his work is widely sought after across the country. Mark has won many awards for his art, however, his strongest desire is to tell a story that will cause the viewer to ponder the important things in life.
