Gretatrailer2Gretacars"A Silly history of Art"
free i
mage presentation and talk by Greta Gretzinger
Monday August 3, 6-7
at the Teton Arts Center, 110 Rodeo Road by the Driggs airport and Warbird's restaurant


Greta Gretzinger’s hilarious artworks are familiar sights around the Teton region. Almost everyone has seen one of her painted cars on the road and she is currently working on the outside wall of the Victor Emporium. Join us as she gives us a “silly history of art” lesson, (referring to the fact that she references many famous works of art in her subjects) and talks about her popular public works as well as other projects she does as an illustrator employing local characters, jokes and situations. "I particularly like to add something that is a twist on traditional themes or subjects."she says.

Greta's murals can be seen in Jackson at the New York City Sub Shop, The Merry Piglets, The Rocky Mountain Oyster, Pearl Street Bagels and the biggest one, in the alley beside the Sundance Inn. Other clients include Dr. Menolocino and ,the CAT scan and MRI rooms in St. John's Hospital. She has worked with the Jackson High School Drama department designing sets and painting with students. With the Jackson Middle School, she designed and worked with students on several history mural projects.

She has illustrated two children's books "How the Elephants Saved Christmas" and“ The Ugly Mooseling”, both written by Linda L. Olson.

New Art Center

The Teton Arts Council is developing a plan for land improvement around the existing Arts Center on Rodeo Drive, Driggs. The land is currently unimproved area but could be so much more. The view of the Grand Teton is tremendous! Our goal for the land improvement will include an outdoor art park with space to hold gatherings, outdoor workshops, and small events. We would love to hear from our Members! Look for invitations to come out this summer and tell us what you think.

Our Sponsors

Many of the programs offered by The Teton Arts Council would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors.  We greatly appreciate your support and participation.

We are equally grateful for the countless members of our community that have stepped up to the plate to volunteer time, talent, and sometimes a little money of their own.

 

 

Our Mission

The mission of the Teton Arts Council is to develop, nurture, and celebrate our cultural life through education, performances, exhibitions, and community opportunities.

In 2007, we started the volunteer Resident Artists Program to plan, organize and execute the art programming. These volunteers are well-respected artists who give back to the Artist Community by ensuring that the arts classes and workshops continue to offer compelling and relevant education opportunities. If you are interested in volunteering as a Resident Artist, please contact the Board Chair by sending email to info@tetonartscouncil.com
