Letter from Homestead

THE REGION’S PREMIER Landscape Contractor & Garden Center Servicing Jackson & Eastern Idaho

Change Agents Jackson’s Western tradition is one of grit and bootstraps, with a dash of bracing mountain air and a dollop of style as finely finessed as a handlebar moustache. But there’s a revolution afoot, taking place in private studios, backyard workshops and downtown office buildings. Western style is enjoying a renaissance of sorts, the old being made new again by the creators, drafters and craftspeople of the Tetons. The Hole’s heritage is expanding and evolving as never before. Homestead is pleased to bring you a sampling of the newest in architectural and design innovation. Our local writers—Richard Anderson, Tammy Christel, Meg Daly, Dina Mishev and David Porter—have penned stories about remarkable community members and their works, detailing their efforts to step beyond the bounds of what it has meant to live in the Intermountain West. That creative spark is surely the impetus behind our four featured dream homes. An eye for detail is certainly the critical element at work in the new commercial building found on page 38. And without a doubt, it’s a passion for interpretation that compels the artists we profiled, and the designers whose brains we picked, to bring you the latest and greatest in cutting-edge design products. We at Homestead invite you to settle in and enjoy learning the ins and outs of the design process. May the new developments revealed in these pages help guide you to look at your own spaces and explore possibilities you might never have considered. Enjoy this new Western evolution.

Great Outdoors Outdoor living spaces are just as important as the inside area, especially since our summer season here in Wyoming is so short. A warm coat, a little something to drink and fresh snowfall—what’s not to like?

Place Settings My favorite dinnerware is from Arte Italica. The porcelain and pewter dishes are sophisticated and timeless. I wanted a monochromatic style, so I started with a Pendleton blanket as my tablecloth, tea towels from Rincon Road designs coupled with small antlers for place settings, and added a kick of hot pink in the flowers and napkins to give a pop of color.

What Was Served On a cold fall day with one of our first Teton snows, I was craving something warm and nutritious, so I went with braised lamb shanks, creamy polenta, wilted mustard greens and some crusty bread. All these dishes are quite colorful on their own, but together, it’s striking! (Find menu and recipes on pages 26 and 27.)

that her home would reflect much the same aesthetic. She and her fiance, Mac Munro, percussionist for Mandatory Air, live in Bar Y Estates, in a log home that unleashed their creative DIY impulses. “We painted every single surface that wasn’t log. I repainted the kitchen cabinets, then revamped the bathroom to make it more comfortable for guests. Our style is very much mixing old with new.” In the past, she has extended that inclusive perspective to even staging an old beachbound favorite, the low-country boil. “This is a meal that should be cooked at the beach and served in the sand. But, being in Wyoming, we improvised, mixed things up a little. After a day of floating and fishing the Snake River, we rushed home to our deck, pulled out a few tables and covered them with newspaper. After the boil, we dumped all the food in the center of the tables and dug in. That particular evening, like this dinner, was a special night for delicious food, great stories and amazing friends under the stars.” hs | 25

Game Plan Lots of parties seem to end up in the kitchen. Ours always end up in the basement. We’ve made it our playroom, and with this foosball table, there’s always someone who’s up for a little good-natured competition.

Braised Lamb Shanks

Apple-Wrapped Pancetta with Manchego Cheese & Rosemary Sprigs | | | |

1 Pink Lady apple Small brick of Manchego cheese 15 thin slices of pancetta Fresh rosemary sprigs

Slice a Pink Lady apple into 15 small wedges, cut cheese into 1/4-inch sticks, wrap pancetta over the apple and cheese, and pierce with rosemary sprig. Heat a skillet on the stove. Put a dash of olive oil in the pan and cook, rotating often until cheese has melted. Serve warm, and wow your guests with this tasty and easy appetizer!

| 6 pounds lamb shanks | 2 tsp. minced fresh rosemary | 1 tsp. coarsely ground fennel seeds | 7 garlic cloves - 1 grated, 6 minced | 2 large onions, minced | 2 tbsp. unbleached all-purpose flour | 2 tsp. paprika | 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes | 2 cups canned diced tomatoes, drained | 1/2 cup dry white wine | 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth

On a rimmed baking sheet, rub the shanks with a mixture of salt and pepper, rosemary, fennel seeds and grated garlic. Cover and let stand at room temperature for 1 hour or chill overnight. In a large, heavy pot, saute onions with salt and pepper until golden, 8–10 minutes. Add minced garlic, flour, paprika and red pepper flakes. Stir vigorously to distribute flour. Cook, stirring often, until mixture becomes dry, about 1 minute.

Add tomatoes and wine. Simmer briskly while stirring, until juices thicken and tomatoes begin to break down, about 10 minutes. Gradually stir in 4 cups of broth. Simmer for 3–4 minutes. Add lamb shanks to the pot in a single layer, pushing them down into sauce (add additional broth if needed so that shanks are about 3/4 submerged). Roast at 350°, uncovered, until tops of shanks have browned, about 30 minutes. Using tongs, turn shanks over and roast 30 minutes longer. Cover and cook, turning shanks occasionally, until meat is forktender and almost falling off the bone, 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hours (time will depend on size of shanks). Remove from oven, and skim off fat from surface of sauce. Let shanks rest in liquid for at least 30 minutes. Drizzle each shank with remaining sauce and use excess as a gravy.

Wilted Mustard Greens with Butternut Squash & Hazelnuts | | |

1 bunch of mustard greens, ripped and sauteed in a dash of olive oil for 2-3 minutes 1 butternut squash, cubed and roasted with olive oil at 350° for 20-25 minutes 1 cup skinned hazelnuts, toasted for 8-10 minutes until golden brown, then chopped

For dressing: In a medium bowl, add chopped hazelnuts, 1/2 cup hazelnut oil, 1/2 cup sherry vinegar, 2 tsp. sugar and whisk together. Place mustard greens and squash in bowl, and toss with dressing and salt and pepper.

Jam Session Mac is an accomplished percussionist and plays with local band Mandatory Air. He has a number of instruments and rhythm shakers, so jam sessions are a frequent occurrence.

It’s the Little Things My favorite piece in our guest bathroom is a framed quote that was given to my parents as a wedding gift. It reads: “Somehow I can forget some of the people most of the time, most of the people some of the time, but I can’t forget people like you any of the time.”

Great-Grandma’s Homemade Donut Holes

Pom Pom Cocktail | 2 oz. bourbon whiskey | 1/2 oz. lemon juice | 1/2 tsp. maple syrup | Splash of POM juice | Pomegranate seeds for color | Dash or two of bitters | Garnish with lemon and candied ginger | Ice Serve in Ball jars for a rustic touch and to showcase the beautiful red color!

| 1 3/4 cups warm water | 1/4 cup sugar | 2 packets yeast | 5 cups flour | 1/3 cup melted butter | 2/3 cup warm milk | 2 tsp. salt | 2 eggs | Oil for deep-frying

Add melted butter, warm milk, salt and eggs—combine well. Add remaining flour and beat well. Cover with a towel and let rise until doubled. Punch dough and roll out and then cut into donut holes.

Dissolve warm water, sugar and yeast in a medium bowl.

Deep-fry in oil at 350° and put on draining board (plate with a paper towel can be substituted to absorb excess grease).

Add 2 cups of flour to yeast mixture and beat until combined.

Let cool, stick onto skewers and serve with dipping sauces. | 27

With clients as diverse as the Rockefellers, the Carter-Cashes and Nancy Reagan, WRJ has established a deserved reputation for verve, elegance and thoughtful attention to detail. Their extensive background in fine antiques and interior design can be accessed at their flagship store, WRJ Home, located on the Town Square in Jackson, where they carry some of the finest lines of home furnishings available exclusively. Some of their favorite things include the unusual items shown here.

1. Luxe Fabric Swatches

2. Antler Candleholder

3. Wood Stool

4. Alpaca Throws

Loro Piana sources the finest cashmere, wools and linens, all of them having a luxurious feel, not to mention an exquisitely gorgeous appearance. The Italian company’s full line of interior fabrics is carried exclusively at WRJ Home.

Baer and Jenkins go for one-of-a-kind pieces, often artisan in legacy and graced with history. This elk antler candleholder is delicately rustic, speaks simply of its woodsy heritage and sits atop a sleek silver base.

Who knew that a carpenter’s stool could be so refined? This one echoes the past with its simple, country, Belgian feel, but is made more contemporary by its crisp lines and leather seat studded with nailheads. Exclusively at WRJ Home.

Baer and Jenkins often travel the globe to locate the best artisans currently at work. These South American throws are rich with color and well priced, produced on the same wood looms that have been used for centuries.

5. Yardstick Table

6. Ralph Lauren Barware

7. Teak End Table

This singular “Clove Hoof ” side table was designed and built in 1986 by the artist John Marcoux, its prototype displayed at the Workbench Furniture Exhibition in New York City and appearing in New York Magazine. The table is constructed of yardsticks, pipe strapping, poplar, steel and glass.

Inspired by his private collections, Ralph Lauren’s signature barware includes glasses, decanters and leather-bound trays. Each piece is an example of fine detail and outstanding workmanship. Access to the entire Ralph Lauren line can be found exclusively at WRJ Home.

Each of these teak root tables is intriguingly unique, a cultural piece of art from craftsmen in Indonesia. Their rustic form works quiet magic even in contemporary settings.

El emen ts: Desig n er picks Stephen dynia Stephen Dynia Architects Our goal is to design houses that exceed the needs and desires of families living in Wyoming in the 21st century—unique architecture that is timeless, yet of its time and place.

1. Inspiration

2. Context

3. Architecture

The purest form of inspiration in making buildings and spaces is phenomena found in nature. The fluid characteristic of light, form and texture in the landscape at all scales, coupled with dramatic seasonal transitions, leads to the design of living environments that possess ethereal qualities.

So, too, do the simple utility and patina of native structures in this landscape serve as inspiration. These purposeful constructions—barns, snow fences, primitive shelter and the like—were created from available materials to serve real needs of human settlement in this harsh environment. They are evidence of the interaction of buildings and nature.

Within the poetry of nature, and the inherent honesty of these indigenous structures, are lessons that serve as inspiration for the design of houses and the spaces within and around them. These universal architectural principles—along with the occasional glance at great sculpture, such as the Richard Serra work above—are ingredients for the creative process of design. | 31

El e me nt s : D e s i g n e r p i c k s kristin frappart,


Trauner Designs, Inc. A Jackson Hole native, Kristin Frappart joined Trauner Designs, Inc., after finishing design school. “The relationships we have been able to build with our clients is my favorite part of the job,” Frappart says. “Doesn’t matter how large or how small the project, I love using my clients’ ideas and inspirations to create both personal and working environments tailored to their unique lifestyles.” Frappart’s selections are a testament to her varied tastes and influences, and she counts the time she spent post graduation, working as an interior designer in Phoenix, as invaluable to her successful return to Jackson.

1. Cowhide Chair

2. Paris

3. Lighting

This chair is a great example of mixing modern style with rustic, natural materials. The hair-on-hide upholstery provides rich texture, while the simple, clean lines of the chair frame lend a contemporary air.

My travel experiences really help inform my sense of design. A recent trip to Paris to attend the Maison & Objet Show, the world’s largest home show, was a designer’s dream, offering new interpretations of how old fits with new. We were impressed with some of the furniture lines and the lovely European fabrics.

Done properly, lighting provides utility, ambiance and, if desired, functional art. I look for lighting that provides mood within fixtures that complement the space we are creating. But lighting is also an element that begs for creativity. This fixture by Hilliard Lamps is a handcrafted luxury artisan piece.

4. The Private House

5. Fabrics

6. Artwork/Judith Dragonette

Rose Tarlow is influential for any designer, style or project. Tarlow’s simple principles and creative design are appropriate to any home, and her solutions are elegant and personal. Whether I’m working on lighting, fabric textures or with architectural elements, this book provides insight for any room.

Any design project entails selecting fabrics from a myriad of options, choosing textural components and finding colors that fit within the design scheme. This requires a good eye, knowledge of a client’s taste and the proper use of various textiles. Properly done, the right fabrics make a room or home come alive.

Whenever possible, I try to showcase local talent. Judith Dragonette’s seemingly simple paintings immediately catch your eye, and she manages to create art that enhances a room without overpowering other elements. Currently, Dragonette shows her art in the Amangani Gallery at Amangani Resort, Cafe Genevieve in Jackson and at The Jackson Hole Flower Co. in Wilson.

El emen ts: Desig n er picks Nona Yehia E/Ye Design When Jackson architect Nona Yehia of E/Ye Design looks at the world, she sees color, shape, light and opportunity. “All of my picks for this Homestead piece,” she says, “are part of the same conversation: I love things that have to do with the manipulation of structure, form and flow.” Yehia’s a strong supporter of local design, and her selections here reveal an eagerness to challenge our notions of what a table is, what a dress is and what an exterior finish should be. “Our things, whatever they are, have ramifications in terms of how we live,” she says.

1. Transforming Dynamics Yehia’s firm, E/Ye Design, worked with Windsor Fiberglass to custom-design and produce these 6-foot-by-2.5-foot exterior fiberglass tiles whose effect changes according to light and shadow. Durable and maintenance-free, they are available for both residential and commercial applications. Like the tiles, the undulating screen of plywood is laser-cut, bendable and conducts both light and air flow. The stairway in Yehia’s home represents her commitment to manipulating space.

2. Pushing Properties

3. Configurations

4. Modern Interpretation

The clean simplicity of this table lamp hides its 100% recycled PET felt beginnings. The repetition of pleated folds becomes magical when illuminated from within. Stola table lamp by Actual, $150.

Concealed snaps provide endless reconfigurations of this industrial felt bowl, perfect for fruit, yarn, toys or ? Shumai by Actual, $125.

Kyrgyz artist Aidai comes from a long line of yurt makers. Her handfashioned, hand-dyed, felt-and-silk scarves echo a heritage of traditional design pushed to new—and often stunning—potential, blurring the line between what was and what will be. Carried by Vista 360, prices vary.

5. Fashion Front

6. Nature Stalk

7. Resinate/Resonate

Manipulating structure and design to beautiful effect, artist Abbie Miller redefines the meaning of the word “dress.” Yehia points out that architecture and fashion often work with and against each other to create new interpretations of old forms.

The modular plastic “Vitra Algue” recalls the multidimensional configurations of plants. Used as a focal point, wall hanging or room divider, the web-like textural pieces snap together to infuse a space with a little bit of nature. By Ronan and Bouroullec.

Relaxed Elegance Antlers are emblematic of Jackson Hole, but this museumpiece stag head once graced the walls of Kaiser Wilhelm II. Coupled with the Curtis portrait, Ralph Lauren chair and Louis XVI-era reproduction pine cabinet, the setting is at once refined and comfortable.

VISIONARIE S OF DESIGN + Story by Alisan Peters + Photography by Latham Jenkins A certain man named Porsche once said that if you have to explain it, it isn’t working. Rush Jenkins and Klaus Baer of WRJ Design Associates and WRJ Home would wholeheartedly agree. From their offices in New York and their flagship showroom and design headquarters in Jackson, located on the Town Square, they have expanded and enhanced their catalogue of global experience in exterior, interior and landscape design. “Our showroom in Jackson,” says Jenkins, “is a design laboratory that enables us to constantly refine an aesthetic—mix up various textures, colors and forms—to find solutions that speak both to our clients and to our community, whether that’s contemporary or traditional, refined or rustic.” Jenkins and Baer have a strong belief in authenticity—of the piece, of the style, of the lines they carry and of the designs they devise. “We are especially effective for our clients,” says Baer, “if we can be in on the planning stages. Whether that means working with the architect or redesigning a single room, being able to ensure that we provide the proper lighting options, room proportion, or color and texture palettes makes a better final result. If we’re there from the beginning, we can design a home environment that surpasses our clients’ expectations.” 34 | homestead

Restful Nest Western is spoken here, though with a lighter accent. Howard Post’s painting, “End of the Road,” is from Altamira Fine Art. The bed and suede-and-nailhead chair are both from Ralph Lauren, as are the leather-wrapped lamps. A local artist crafted the redwood end table, and the cubbyhole secretary is a Belgian reproduction in pine. The stunning faux-fur throw lined in satin comes from Paris. The blue patterned pillows are from John Robshaw, and the wood swan is from the collection of Geoffrey Beene.

Private Time To be shared, shaken or stirred. The burnished leather bar tray is a quiet complement to the brass-and-wood lamp and assorted barware from Ralph Lauren. Paulette Tavormina’s pear photograph is based on 17th-century Dutch paintings; it hangs on a wall of barnwood panels from Pennsylvania. A striped linen chair provides the perfect personal niche, especially with the Bodmer throw.

A lot of the lines carried at WRJ are exclusive. They consider their job to be one of scouting the world to identify, and continue to be educated about, the cultures, objects, art and fine art that inform their work. Jenkins and Baer also work with treasured mentors and clients, like Sotheby’s in New York, to bring unusual, even museum-quality pieces to the Tetons. “Our broad experience,” Jenkins emphasizes, “provides a depth and richness to our creativity that you won’t find elsewhere.” hs

de sign ins p ir at i o n arc h itect E/Ye Design, Nona Yehia

Evo lu t io n + Story by Alisan Peters + Photography by David Agnello Sometimes, inspiration flows from what you don’t want to do. In the case of this space-bending guesthouse in the Wilderness Subdivision, the owner wanted to explore a guest option that conveyed a more organic orientation than her traditionally styled home. As an art collector, her eye for structure, color and style found perfect symmetry with architect Nona Yehia of E/Ye Design. “We set out to design this new living space by aiming to play off elements of the main home,” says Yehia. “It was all about trying to get the greatest spatial variation in that smallish footprint.” Yehia settled on materials and visual links to some of the main home’s stronger elements. For instance, the traditional home’s exterior is board-and-batten gray cedar; Yehia opted for tongue-and-groove gray cedar. Punches of yellow, both inside 36 | homestead

Exterior: Silhouetted against a twilight sky, the outline of this guesthouse has a cloudlike quality. The punch-out window seemingly opens to the natural world. Yellow Stairs: This circular staircase provides quick access to a groundlevel pond just off the patio. Its startling color gives life to the more neutral exterior and draws the eye to the seductive curve of the roof. Interior: A neutral palette is punched up with yellow pillows and patterned draperies. Furnishings are comfortable, sleek and modern. Bedroom: The sloped ceiling invites the eye to take in surrounding mountain views, as does the window seat in the punch-out wall.

Room to Move: Attention to detail was key to maximizing the opportunities of the main floor. Color, materials and careful selection of elements created a space that is warm and inviting, yet not shut off from the outdoors. Clean Lines: Directing the eye to follow the clean lines of the space adds to a sense of movement. The arrow window between the end of the kitchen counter and the dining area acts as a caught breath, allowing views of exterior curves and natural surroundings.

and out, harken back to the homeowner’s painted front door, and strategic windows give a smallish space breathing room. “On this project, I actually got to do what I love best, which is push traditional elements into new configurations,” Yehia continues. “Using elements like sloped ceilings on the top floor, broad sliding doors to the outside and a circular staircase to the pond opened up the interior and gave it a more organic, connected-to-nature feel.”

Staircase: A steel staircase is carpeted and accompanied by steel railings that lead first to the view window, then turn a corner into the sleeping area.

Carrying the outside in, Yehia provided a sheltered outdoor shower. And interior designer Emily Summers added finishing touches whose composition or presentation echoed the mountain views outside.

Outdoor Shower: Freedom and privacy are combined in this quiet alcove with its rain-shower water fixture.

“It was a great project,” Yehia concludes. “There’s a very real sense of light and air moving with you through the space.” hs | 37

Indeed, both Berlin and Bontecou emphasize their work as architect and builder, respectively, as collaborative, either between themselves or with their clients. The building came into being when Steve Bontecou approached Larry Berlin to suggest that the two work together to design and construct a building and offices that would reflect their professions and positions in the valley. 38 | homestead

Exterior Design & Shared Spaces Although only three stories, the Pacific Building’s vertical lines tease out greater height. Cedar siding and oxidized metal mimic the natural colors of the surrounding buttes, while a west-facing patio offers room for lunch or a conference en plein air.

Stairwell: Larry Berlin’s artistry of modernist lines and shapes lends beautiful form to practical function. Mixed Media: Metal, wood and concrete finish the exterior, what Steve Bontecou calls “straightforward and architecturally interesting.” Exterior Lines: Glass and light ease the weight of other structural materials and provide a necessary connection to the natural world beyond walls.

The Pacific Building is located in a busy commercial district, but is offstreet on a quiet site. The building rises directly above the parking area, an intentional configuration to maximize square footage while working within a county design regulation that limits an area to parking space ratio. The structure is one of modernist design: clean lines and right angles, use of steel and stone, and abundant light. When designing the Pacific Building, Berlin wanted interior spaces washed in natural light and a structure that would “look like an architect’s office. It had to be modern, something updated for Jackson Hole, yet fitting within the character of the town.”

Berlin Architects is located on the second and third floors of the building. One enters the office not into a reception area, but into the conference room, underscoring the collaborative approach the firm takes with its clients. Two-story windows span the room, facing east to collect morning light. Materials contrast: Bare concrete walls complete one side of the room, cedar siding another, and a burnt umber rug provides a pop of color. Berlin’s personal office is humbly tucked behind the conference room. A punch-out window faces north. His desk, broad and covered with current projects, includes a space cut out to afford passage of an I-beam. Wood, brilliant white walls and steel finish the space. | 39

Berlin Architects Entering directly into the conference room was an intentional decision, one marking the starting point of collaboration. From another perspective (above right), the conference room reveals an intriguing contrast of materials and colors. Contractor Steve Bontecou, left, and architect Larry Berlin ultimately proved that collaboration was their strong point.

Contractor Bontecou—whose business, Bontecou Construction, is on the third floor— states that he and Berlin intended to design a building that would be “straightforward and architecturally interesting.” After 30 years of working in a construction trailer, Bontecou looked forward to nonrestrictive spaces. His offices are certainly open. His staff, like the staff at Berlin Architects, works at open desk spaces with no walls or partitions between them, an intentional design feature that fosters collaboration. The Bontecou offices include wood surfaces throughout and warm finishes that are relaxing. Heating and ventilation ducts are exposed, as is the underside of the roof. The lack of conventional ceiling creates an 40 | homestead

Bontecou Construction Second Floor An open reception area and unstructured offices throughout the building encourage dialogue and teamwork. The modern mix of materials conveys traditional Western values in a decidedly upscale manner.

industrial, nonstandard look. Both companies’ workspaces face west and give way to a large, covered patio, a great place to step outside most seasons in the Tetons. The Pacific Building is the product of 70-plus years combined experience in design and construction in Jackson Hole. It is also the product of a builder approaching an architect to say, “Let’s design and build for ourselves.” The beauty and functionality of the space speak of many years of cooperation and the success of two highly regarded professionals in their respective fields. hs | 41

Cap t ivat in g Spa nish C ol o n i a l + Story by Tammy Christel + Photography by Paul Mullins When Terry Trauner and Kristin Frappart agreed to redesign a California home’s master bedroom, the pair had no inkling they’d wind up fully transforming a sleek, contemporary residence into a warm, Spanish Colonial-style home. “These are prior clients,” says business owner Trauner. “They revealed the project was far more than originally imagined. With only a few photographs and a general direction to go on, our mission was to envision what this house would be, to define every architectural detail. Their trust was remarkable. We thought we’d be designing soft goods, and now we’ve designed the entire home, right down to the sheetrock.” 42 | homestead

Entry: The home’s double front door features substantial stylistically accurate iron details by Rocky Mountain Hardware. Living Room: Finishes, furnishings and fabrics were meticulously researched to create a sense of comfort, history and warmth. “The house spreads out before you,” says Trauner. Kitchen Nook: The flame-red upholstery mimics nature’s display on these distressed Ponti side chairs. Circling a Napa Stone tabletop, it’s an inspiring pairing. Reading Nook: Past the iron gate, a reading nook leads to the master bedroom. Reclaimed barnwood ceilings and grommeted grasscloth wallpaper provide a sumptuous atmosphere. | 43

Master Bath: This master bath oasis light, provided by a Bella Figura Venetian crystal chandelier and Reborn Antique accent lighting, highlights the double shower and rustic black floor tile. Detail: A pair of bright red pitchers and a rustic side table, complemented by a Chinese Chippendale wing chair finished with a crackle lacquer, raised chinoiserie-gold gilt, help cozy a bedroom corner. The drapes are drawn back by a monkey fistinspired knot custom-created by Samuel and Sons. That trust was well placed. Trauner and associate ASID, IIDA designer Frappart researched furniture, fabrics, trim, fireplaces, hardware, exterior features and lighting. Frappart emphasizes the project is a superb example of Trauner Designs’ range of services. “We can add architectural details to an existing home and create something fantastically special,” says Frappart. “Four months after first seeing the house, we put a complete package together for the owners. They made no changes whatsoever; that’s incredibly affirming!” Frappart and Trauner chose rustic elements such as beamed ceilings, scrolled iron, red barnwood and leather wall tiles to echo a pair of magnificent iron gates identifying the neighborhood. To enter the house is to experience a time period’s fresh revival, as well as a livable, functioning home. 44 | homestead

Guest Bedroom: “Kristin is fabulous at layering patterns, textures and fabrics,” says Trauner. An exotic, hand-carved bed frame by Artifact is the centerpiece in an aesthetically perfect bedroom retreat. Media Room: Rustic wooden beams, a 14-footlong cabinet, a wool-and-silk rug—and cozy upholstered pieces designed by Frappart— make you want to curl up and relax.

“We work to establish trust and become intimately familiar with the way a client lives, how they go through their days,” Trauner says. “We can design a stunning, beautiful house, but being able to live there is what makes it a home. Our clients have asked us to dinner when the home is complete—a rare honor. We’re proud of our friendship, partnership and deep understanding of our clients’ dream.” hs | 45

a si te to behold + Story by Meg Daly + Photography by David Agnello & David Swift The secluded lot on North Gros Ventre Butte invited a new perspective on design—and living. Nestled near a copse of aspen, the home site does not face classic Teton views. Instead, the property offers sweeping vistas of the Snake River Range, Cache Creek Range and the Sleeping Indian. Rather than dominating its surroundings, the house “sits quietly on the land,” says architect Stephen Dynia. The homeowners chose Dynia based on his portfolio of innovative design. A prototypical Western log lodge was not what they were after. They embraced Dynia’s philosophy of finding new ways of living in Wyoming beyond what he calls “pioneer nostalgia.” “Jackson is a frontier for new ideas,” Dynia says. | 47

Hallway: This textural rug mirrors the spring green of new aspen trees framed in the far window. In winter, the rug brings color and warmth when hillsides are white. Chair: The elegant lines of this simple, cozy armchair harken to fields in the distance.

The 6,000-plus-square-foot home takes an L-shape. With its clean lines, nothing gets in the way of the views and surrounding natural flora. “The home is simultaneously open and intimate,” Dynia says. “We took our inspiration from nature.” Interior designer Jacque Jenkins-Stireman used natural colors and textures that speak to the outdoors. Her custom-designed case goods were created specifically for this home. Jenkins-Stireman says she looks at the entirety of how clients live in their homes and how sunlight, even moonlight, moves through rooms to enrich the living experience. The concept of bringing the outside in was both “fun and challenging,” builder John Walker of Mill Iron Timberworks says. 48 | homestead

A Canvas for Living “The formula for an ideal residence starts with listening to the client,” Jenkins-Stireman says. “The architect and builder realize their vision within the landscape; the design finishes and furnishings should then be intuitive.” | 49

Dining Room: Thoughtful details run throughout the home, where motifs of gentle curves play against angularity, creating a lively yet uncluttered environment. Detail: The house was designed to be simultaneously open and intimate. Chair and Chest: A bright burst of color creates an enticing lounge spot, like happening upon an outcrop of flowers on a mountain hike.

Innovative Angles The roof extends 8 feet out from the building’s walls and cantilevers the other direction over another wing of the house.

Clean Lines Layers, levels and angles within the courtyard create a multidimensional space, a kind of outdoor living room.

“My role is to take what the architect and interior designer want and make it come together,” Walker says. “What is different about this house is that both the view and sunlight are to the south,” says architect Dynia. “We created an intimate uphill courtyard on the north side, with open access to the valley on the south side.” Rooms and spaces within the home feel warm and welcoming, not daunting or arid. Lighting rails, steel stair railings and window frames— all in black—delineate space. Triple-paned windows from a German company provide excellent insulation as well as passive solar heat. Acid-stained concrete floors add an element of earthiness. Sapele wood cupboards in the kitchen reveal a dramatic grain that will become deeper and richer over time. Jenkins-Stireman has worked with these clients for more than a decade. “I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know the entire family and gain a true understanding of how they live. This is their secluded retreat,” she says. “We wanted to maximize that feeling.” hs | 51

BUILDING CHARACT E R + Story by Richard Anderson + Photography by David Agnello & Tuck Fauntleroy Driving through Owl Creek, west of Jackson Hole Airport, little suggests a human presence besides occasional driveways meandering into the trees. Deer, elk, moose, even the occasional bear, are more common visitors. One driveway leads to a well-maintained farmhouse with attached barn. The Ellis Nunn design dates to 2010, but looks like generations have added to it over the decades—exactly what the homeowners wanted. “In the old days,” Nunn says, “your wranglers would do additions to the home.” Some knew how to build with wood, others with rock. The result over time was a mixture of styles and elements. Nunn has a similar mix of talents. Known throughout the West for his custom log homes, he and project architect John Kjos worked closely with the clients to develop a hybrid style that combines logs with conventional framework, a feature of the main living space in Owl Creek. Those logs, says Jed Mixter, co-owner of Two Ocean Builders, had to be split, hollowed and reassembled with the frame wall in between “so it looked like they’d never been touched.” 52 | homestead | 53

Rustic Living Rooms are spacious with a mix of antiques, new pieces and custom works by local craftsmen. Warm colors offset the predominantly wood and earth tones of building materials and natural surroundings. 54 | homestead

Entertaining and Social Spaces Rustic touches add warmth, such as the custom lighting fixtures in the kitchen and dining area or the Indian blanket patterns on upholstery and drapes. Ample windows offer views to the wooded north and the mountains beyond.

On the east end, the master suite “addition” uses hand-hewn logs, squared and coped for a simulated dovetail look. The “barn”—a three-car garage with overhead bunkroom—is covered in grayed, recycled wood. “Working with those old materials and making them look elegant ... there’s negligible margin for error,” Mixter says. “It has to be done right the first time.” That effortless-looking elegance extends to the grounds, where Sean Macauley of MountainScapes, Inc., was charged with making his landscaping disappear. “They wanted the house to look like it was dropped straight into that site in the woods where it was built,” says Macauley. Mature forest was preserved and, where possible, enhanced to look like it had grown up around the homestead for a century. Much of the job focused on reclaiming disturbed areas. Two natural gaps in the canopy perfectly framed the Grand Teton and Teewinot, giving Nunn a starting place for the site design. “The goal was to make it look understated, simple and clean,” Macauley says. Understated also describes the interiors by Colleen Walls and Rosanna Mitchell of Willow Creek Interior Design. At about 7,000 square feet, the house could have felt massive, but rooms are “all really very intimate and warm,” Mitchell says.

Warm Hues and Tailored Lines With its plaster walls, weathered wood and classic textile patterns, the master suite offers a step back in time. Outside the family dining room, a recessed porch with its own fireplace offers ski chalet ambiance.

Even the great room—with stone hearth, two-story ceilings and a wall of windows facing the mountains—feels cozy. The volume impresses, but the dimensions, from the sitting area to the fireplace, for example, encourage close conversation. Furnishings mix antiques with new pieces. An ancient-looking cobbler’s table is functional and appealingly curious, and some items were commissioned from local craftsmen. “We try to use bright colors wherever we can,” adds Walls. In a home full of wood tones, ochres, greens and reds warm the rooms and add interest when winter whitens views. An expansive kitchen—with hearth-like stonework around the stove, flowing granite countertops and plenty of mingling room—divides the great room from an intimate family dining area that, in a pinch, can serve larger groups. Three upstairs bedrooms are similarly scaled. In the master bedroom, down a short hall from the social area, plaster walls and reclaimed wood-frame windows “feel like they could be 100 years old,” Nunn says. Doors from the master suite, great room and dining area lead to a stone patio with fire pit. Macauley said the owners originally envisioned a fire pit in a forest meadow, but flexibility and ease of maintenance won out. 56 | homestead

Contrasting Materials A flagstone patio with fire pit extends the living space into the outdoors. Three architectural styles, coupled with newer construction methods and materials (like solar panels), imply a home evolving over generations. The western wing was even built at a slight angle to the main lodge, enhancing the sense that it was an addition.

“They knew what they wanted,” Mitchell says of the clients, as did the other principals. “They were very articulate and could describe exactly what they were after.” Likewise, the team enjoyed working together. “One of the wonderful things about Ellis’ firm is it really brings a collaborative approach,” Mixter says. “Their responsiveness and ability to react to the inevitable challenges ... to working through those as a group, that makes the process very smooth.” hs | 57

mo u ntain mo d e r n + Story by Dina Mishev + Photography by David Swift “Stark contemporary works well in California where it’s green year-round, but in Jackson Hole, where it’s winter half the year, you have to be careful,” says interior designer Kate Binger of Designed Interiors, LLC. “No amount of radiant heating can warm up cold design; no one wants to feel as if they’re freezing in their own home.” Award-winning Jackson-based architecture firm Carney Logan Burke worked with Binger, Two Ocean Builders and MountainScapes, Inc., on a contemporary five-acre property at the southern end of 3 Creek Ranch that, yes, has heated floors throughout, but is warm even without them. “The client asked for a really clean modern aesthetic, but was concerned it not be too cold,” says architect Kevin Burke, the principal on the project. Carney Logan Burke calls it “mountain modern.”

Fireplace: A site-cast concrete hearth with blackened steel anchors the main living pavilion while the space is defined by vertical grain fir paneling. Floor-to-ceiling glass showcases the unspoiled views of southern Jackson Hole. The iron-and-reclaimed-wood coffee table adds an earthy note with its wood grains reflected in the area rug. It’s balanced by the sleek nailhead detail on the sofa. Stairway: The placement of Theodore Waddell’s “Sheridan Angus” is deliberate, the blues of both sky and painting acting counterpoint to the rolled steel form of the stairwell wall. “This style still has a close tie to our Western heritage—it uses today’s technologies and materials to reinterpret it,” Burke says. And here, Western heritage is given its full due before you even enter the home. “The landscape architect’s goal was to get the landscaping and house to match what was there before construction began,” says Sean Macauley, owner of MountainScapes, Inc. “And what was there before construction was sage, rabbitbrush and a bunch of native grass. You can’t get more Western than that.”

60 | homestead

Dining: This organic, gracefully edged dining table plays well against the clean lines of the sleek dining chairs. Woven linen on the chair seats and a bamboo rug add warmth to elements of wood and concrete. Guest Bedroom: Kate Binger designed the custom headboards and side table, made locally, as juxtaposed elements to the concrete floors. Bright colors warm the space with a fun combination of pieces from her downtown store, dwelling.

While this order sounds simple, it was anything but. “It is always hard to duplicate Mother Nature,” Macauley says. “Sometimes 400 trees and a ton of flowers are easier.” MountainScapes succeeded in executing a design that allows the structure itself to grab your attention. The exterior does not have a broad array of materials— primarily wood, glass and architectural concrete with some metal accents—but it is the first home in 3 Creek to use architectural concrete on its exterior. “The concrete was a challenge for 3 Creek to approve, but through an extensive sampling process, they’ve come to appreciate it,” Burke says. “It’s opened up a nice addition to the materials palette that others can now use.” | 61

Kitchen: A sleek bank of sapele wood cabinets is punched up with sea-colored mosaic glass tile and modern, cantilevered, rolled-steel shelves. Room to Move: The 1,000-square-foot living area feels even larger with the dramatic views framed in floor-to-ceiling windows. Architect Kevin Burke refers to the style as “mountain modern,” where traditional rustic materials are used in a brilliantly contemporary style.

While the architectural concrete—stained a mottled grey/brown—is the most unique material of the home’s exterior palette, it’s the glass that’s most noticeable, from both inside and out. The areas facing away from the driveway are almost entirely glass. “When you’re looking in the obvious directions, you don’t really see any other homes or intrusions on the land,” Burke says. “Of course we had to capitalize on those views.”

62 | homestead

Masterful Bedroom: The master suite commands views in four directions. A subtle mix of elements—warm, dark wood walls, woven fabrics and exciting colors—adds both architectural and textural interest. Sleek Countertops: The fluid look of this poured concrete countertop plays against its intrinsic nature. The exquisitely shaped concrete fold adds an artisanal touch in connecting the patterned rug to striated tiles.

The home was designed with two main living spaces: a 1,000-square-foot combined kitchen, living and dining area on the ground level and an 800-square-foot upstairs master suite. Both are open and have at least one wall that is floorto-ceiling windows. On the ground floor, the entire southwest corner is glass. Munger Mountain and the southernmost edge of the Tetons dominate. Upstairs, the western wall of windows frame Glory Bowl and the range as it runs north. “With all this glass, there’s a great connection between the inside and outside,” Burke says. Which, of course, made Binger’s job of creating a warm space challenging. “Understandably, the client wanted to pull in from the views, not distract from them.” So Binger did what she recommends to all clients looking to warm up spaces: “I used deliciously textured fabrics, selected sizable wool rugs, chose tiles with soothing colors and created a family of wood tones that complemented the concrete floors,” Binger says. A sofa and armchairs are upholstered in woven patterns. “Printed patterns can be flat, but the reveal in woven patterns assists in warming a space,” she says. As do the fabrics themselves: The sofa is chenille and invites you to curl up on it. | 63

Landscaping: Wanting the newly built structure to look seated in the landscape was a challenge solved by using native grasses, plants and onsite hardscape. Outdoor Living: The south-facing patio trellis provides summer shading and lends an artistic nuance to the exterior.

While the floors are concrete, the walls are paneled in fir, and the ceiling is hemlock with a clear finish. Kitchen cabinetry is sapele (an African mahogany). Bathroom cabinetry is quartersawn white oak. “It’s all very clean,” Burke says. Jed Mixter, a principal at Two Ocean Builders, the valley firm that built the home, adds, “More modern projects are always challenging because the lines are crisper and the geometry more exact. There’s really nothing to hide behind.” That said, Mixter’s favorite part of the home is the paneling in the main living space. “It’s simple, but has as much character and depth as reclaimed timber,” he says. Albeit very different character and depth than rustic materials like reclaimed timbers and logs. “It’s not that rustic is out, but we’re seeing more and more clients asking for this ‘mountain modern’ aesthetic, which is a fun departure,” Burke says. hs

Exterior Spaces Board-formed concrete, patinated steel, weathered wood, deep overhangs and articulated eaves anchor the house in the context of its neighborhood. The overall effect is a vernacular building from a distance which, when experienced, reveals its roots in modernism. | 65

p u l se + Story by Tammy Christel Jackson’s Western art scene vibrates with quixotic enterprise. Contemporary artists are injecting fresh form and interpretation into Jackson’s traditional themes, and risk-taking abounds. Artists eschew targeting collectors via established galleries, and while contemporary art will never replace traditional Western art, the latter will not stifle the former. Western subject matter is valuable, but it has come to share the stage with prescient, experimental work. Jackson’s good fortune is that traditional and contemporary movements enrich each other, and barriers are bending, even collapsing. “There’s a definite buzz going around now,” says sculptor Natalie Clark. Her color-saturated, multisurfaced towers electrify Jackson’s downtown buckboard streetscape. Heavily influenced by the Tetons’ magnetic power, her sculptures freely explore global elements, such as Africa’s indigenous symbols and Bhutan’s multihued, symbolic prayer flags. “Jackson’s art foundation rests on representational work; our history is built on that,” says Clark. “But a new, sophisticated clientele exercises confidence about mixing contemporary art into their Western homes. Collectors buy work they know artists want to make, not because they’re looking for product, but for true value.” Sometimes, traditional work subtly shifts, embracing world culture. Equine and wildlife artist September Vhay creates large-scale, expansive works that bring out the nature of her medium. Experimenting with what she calls “looseness,” Vhay feels freer to follow her own voice. “Maximum expression with minimal gesture,” says Vhay. “My red horses and bokeh paintings are similar in composition; there’s a duality between Western icons and the tradition of ancient Japanese brush painting. My proportions are correct, but the work is abstract. The intellectual exercise is new.” Quantitative mass and individualism are mixing it up, changing Jackson’s creative philosophy, says Art Association Director of Painting, Drawing and Printmaking Tom Woodhouse. “What I see is more out-in-the-open, contemporary, nontraditional subject matter; it’s not hidden away,” Woodhouse remarks. “Even plein air and wildlife artists are approaching their work more dynamically, not feeling the need to adhere to safe, outmoded standards. The confidence comes from sheer numbers. More people are in town. Kids who grew up here went away to influential, stimulating schools, and their work is infused by what they were exposed to during their time away. 66 | homestead

How do you educate people in traditional ways and still create opportunities to make exciting, new art? I want to bring those concepts together.” At glass artist John Frechette’s store, MADE, local artists gain unprecedented worldwide market reach. Frechette’s business deftly utilizes social media to showcase hip, handmade Western art. The Internet’s potential dawned on Frechette as he roamed a concourse in Detroit’s airport. A mesmerizing installation of glass, music and light stopped him in his tracks. Frechette checked Foursquare, an application allowing users to share their happened-upon inspirations, and instantly discovered rave reviews of the tunnel connecting terminals A and C.

“There’s nothing better than having someone say, ‘I LOVE your glass belt buckles!’ It’s awesome,” exclaims Frechette. “It gets even cooler when they take them back to Australia and someone else there calls to buy one. I look at our Web sales and think, ‘How did this guy making glass belt buckles on his dining room table two years ago get to selling them to someone in Australia today?’ ” In 2011, clothing designer and sculptor Abbie Miller produced Jackson’s first full-on runway fashion show, CLAD, turning an immobile arts scene on its head. Miller’s sculptures were always clothing-based, but gradually, her work became a personal narrative relating to women’s issues. Wearing and exhibiting architectural,

story. Thoroughly connected to the natural world, Minton’s art is at once highly contemporary, thematically universal and “readable.”

“There’s an obvious connection between my sculpture and my clothing. They both go from 2-D to 3-D, and they deal with frames: either hand-constructed or the human body’s frame. My zipper sculptures are statements about exerting control over chaos; the zipper harnessing tension,” Miller says. “Clothing is the same, in that we have personal identities and histories. Clothing controls our physical environment by protecting us, but it also creates a sense of control over our identities and how we present ourselves.”

“I came out here when I was 10; my dad is an environmental educator and my mom an environmental health educator and organic gardener,” Minton recalls. “My work reflects what I see and feel when I’m outdoors, collecting plants to draw and cataloging them. My burnt trees document forest fires as well as individual trees. They’re fragile, and the charcoal easily comes off. This is a moment in time in that tree’s life.”

In her work, museum curator Bronwyn Minton mixes observations about the effects of climate change in the West and her affinity for curating group storytelling exhibitions. Sixty-five artists contributed to the National Museum of Wildlife Art’s wildly popular “Silver Spot,” an exhibition based on a vintage comic book

Jackson’s art success stories no longer require knowing somebody’s influential mother, a board member or philanthropist. Social issues, global warming, e-commerce platforms, brave new collecting preferences and reinterpretations of Western art have arrived. Artists are displaying potent capabilities, leading nonprofits and establishing their own spirited legacies. Quite often, they owe a debt to the valley’s earliest artists, because Jackson’s true spirit is making your own way. hs | 67

Interdependence: Valerie Seaberg Northwest of the Wilson boat launch, an 8-foot woven orb floats atop a pond. The sculpture was commissioned by Jackson Hole Public Art and the Rendezvous Lands Conservancy to celebrate the beginning phases of a public park. “We have a new place we get to ‘be’ as a community,” Jackson artist Valerie Seaberg says. “We are for it; it is for us.” Seaberg often uses willow for her sculptures. “We are always looking up in this valley,” she says. “But we may miss diverse, vibrant riparian zones that offer such stunning colors.”

Ar t o f d is c o ver y + Story by Meg Daly A new species has taken root in Jackson Hole. Neither plant nor animal, it has sprouted up in diverse habitats along the county pathways system. This newcomer is public art. Bumping into a piece of art on a bike ride or a stroll around town feels serendipitous. But the artwork on the pathways system arose from careful planning by Carrie Geraci, the director of Jackson Hole Public Art, in conjunction with JH Community Pathways, 1% for the Tetons and other organizations. Designed to expand our understanding of the unique ecosystem in which we live, public art adds new dimensions of discovery and exploration to the valley. 68 | homestead

Fallen: Ben Roth At the entrance to Teton Village stands a line of denuded tree branches forming a subtle wave pattern. Jackson artist Ben Roth harvested limbs from a single beetle-killed whitebark pine. The wave can be seen as the toppling of majestic pine forests, as mountain pine beetles overpopulate due to global warming. Roth’s wave of branches also expresses a stark beauty as it frames and slices the sky. An ode to the whitebark by Terry Tempest Williams is etched on a nearby viewing bench. Roth says, “Trees are incredible. They have a huge impact on us visually and experientially.”

Evolution: Meghan, Kathleen and Nora Hanson Take a step back in geologic time on the pathway from the Stilson Ranch parking area to the Wilson School. A six-part installation by Driggs, Idaho-based sister/designer team Meghan, Kathleen and Nora Hanson maps major mass extinction events in the Earth’s history. This willow sculpture represents the Late Devonian event, which nearly wiped out reef-building animals like coral.

Evolution: Meghan, Kathleen and Nora Hanson During the Triassic-Jurassic extinction event, represented here in willow weaving, the dominant group of non-dinosaur “ruling lizards” disappeared, along with amphibians. Only one ruling lizard species survived—the ancestors of crocodilians. The Hanson sisters hope their dramatic outdoor exhibit encourages people to ponder our impact on the Earth.

Seven giant, colorful minnows hover at the entrance to the Indian Springs neighborhood. The acid-dyed, industrial-strength windsocks represent various endangered Wyoming fish species. One side exhibits a minnow’s external structure and appearance, while the other side shows an X-ray of a minnow. The windsocks flutter in the breeze much like real minnows ride stream currents. “These fish live in a small, fragile habitat in Yellowstone,” Massachusetts-based artist and scientist Sarah Jariko says. “We are like them. We have this finite planet that has to be healthy in order for us to survive.” | 69

Home Ranch: John Frechette and Carney Logan Burke Architects ArtSpot: Rogan: Reven Marie Swanson One of two stops not on the pathways system, the ArtSpot is a program of the Center of Wonder. The current display is by Denver artist Reven Marie Swanson: “Rogan” lifts his colorful wings as if to soar over Snow King Mountain. The piece reminds viewers how horses lift our spirits and animate our Western dreams, whether traditional or contemporary.

In the lobby of Jackson’s new public restroom and information center, visitors bask in the glow of colorful glass bricks. Closer examination reveals the science embedded in the artful bricks: One wall contains the DNA pattern of a bison, the other shows the DNA pattern of a bear. “When I go to the [Grand Teton National] park, I end up taking kind of microscopic photos,” Frechette says. “I’m drawn to little closeups of a rock in a riverbed or other little details, as opposed to the big landscape.”

Sky Play: Don Rambadt If you’ve ever wanted to soar with ravens, here is your chance. On the downhill return from the National Museum of Wildlife Art’s sculpture trail, you can fly with the corvids along the north retaining wall of the underpass. Savvy viewers will notice the stick in the lead raven’s beak, a nod from the artist to the bird’s intelligence and use of tools. Geraci notes that much of the art found on the pathways gives voice to overlooked species; it asks viewers to consider their role in nature. “By presenting a species and its current situations to us in a new way,” Geraci says, “artists invite viewers to make a connection. Whether that connection is fleeting or lasting is up to the viewer.”

Aspen Gateway: Don Rambadt A dramatic example of how art can enhance otherwise-overlooked public spaces, three installations by Wisconsin artist Don Rambadt transform the pathways’ underpass to the National Museum of Wildlife Art from a dark tunnel into a place of learning and wonder. The stainless steel, mirrorpolish aspen trunks reflect the National Elk Refuge in what Geraci calls “a never-ending natural experience.” hs

Chr ist ian b u r c h + Written by Alisan Peters + Photography by David Agnello Longtime resident and artist Christian Burch is a self-taught painter, awardwinning author and a hardworking teacher who encourages children to develop their creative impulse. When he turns his eye to his own environment, the resulting collection of unusual furnishings—fine art, classic photography, vintage objects, well-worn antiques—is arranged with a wry wink and a nod toward homey comfort. “My style is less modern, maybe more masculine, like an old bar or men’s club, and has been collected over the last 15 years,” Burch says.

1. Moose Antlers

2. Piggott

3. Doctor’s Table

These came from a cabin in Kansas that my grandparents had bought in the ’40s. My grandma, Nonnie, was selling the cabin after my granddad died, and she asked if I wanted anything. I opted for these antlers and added an old beaver-fur hat, also from the family.

This Mike Piggott painting moved in with my partner, John. Originally, I had picked it up from a gallery in town, and it lived with me for about a week. Then John bought it and hung it at his house. When he moved in, it came with him. The title is “After Andy’s Party.” I like it, especially because of our coffee table [next page].

A doctor from Caney, Kansas, used this as his examining table before my dad salvaged it. He kept it in the barn for years, stored dog food on it. I’m glad it came my way.

4. Art & Photography Wall

5. Chair

6. Coffee Table

I like to collect local artists like Ryan Hayworth, Mike Piggott, Carrie Geraci and Henry Dombey. But Georgia-based photographer Chip Simons produces photographs that have a dark, fairy-tale quality to them. The fellow in this shot is riding a BMW across an open field. He’s decked out in a tuxedo jacket, a top hat and a bunny mask.

This guy in Salt Lake City was rehabbing old warehouse buildings. I met up with him and went to see this chair, sat in it and went right to the floor. He made me a screaming deal, so here it sits. I like that it has a history that I don’t know. Maybe it sat on someone’s porch; maybe they smoked cigarettes in it. But it’s very comfortable and at least 50 years old.

Local artist Ben Roth made this metal-topped table early in his career. It’s been in every one of my houses in Jackson. Part of his plan with it was that he didn’t treat the metal, so it has a patina that becomes more and more interesting over time, what with the many rings left from drinking glasses. It’s a reminder of parties and late nights. | 73

7. Bar Chest

8. Michael Eastman Photograph

9. Unknown Painting

I love being able to mix old pieces with new ones. This metal chest was maybe a kitchen piece from India. The slots at the bottom were for holding dishes. There are locks on the cabinet doors to protect food staples and a rack on the side that probably held knives. I love the rusty quality of it, and it has more personality because of the life it had before I came into contact with it.

Focused on the face of a Rodin sculpture, this Michael Eastman photograph has a shimmery, silvered quality. It fascinates me that someone took a photo of someone else’s work and reinterpreted it through their own style.

Sometimes you just find stuff. This is from a used furniture store in Salt Lake City. I picked it up for $35 because the shop owner didn’t think it was worth anything. I think it’s really beautiful, and part of that beauty is that it’s a man standing in his kitchen, a kitchen that has the same layout as mine. But it’s a mess, a stark contrast to how I live. I have no idea who the artist is, but the medium is acrylic on board.

10. Sculpture “Finger Through Her Belt Loop” is by Nicole Dunlap, of Phoenix. She held a show of these delicate sculptures, all focused on the egg as a symbol of the fragility of relationships. The eggshell is not secured by the twine, and if you bump it, the shell will fall and shatter. So the sculpture came with a carton of a dozen blown-out eggshells. Come to find out that inside each one is a little note. The first one that got broken, the note said, “We convinced her to stay.” It gives us something to look forward to.

11. Army Medicine Cabinet This glass-and-metal chest came from a military hospital in Idaho. The bottom part has markers for storing basins and other supplies. We use it for towels, guest soaps and keepsakes. I really like the contrast of the softness of the towels with the metal.

12. Whodunnit? Whodunnit? is a great fundraiser where local artists are each given the same-size canvas on which to create their own piece of art. Aaron Bowles came up with this black canvas and working zipper. When you open the zipper, it says, “What were you expecting to find?” hs | 75

Rick Armstrong RARE Gallery

Rick Armstrong – “Experience” 36” x 50” “EXPERIENCE” is a dichotomy of a man-made structure and the power of nature together in one setting. The piece reminds the viewer of the power of place and brings that power into where it hangs. Armstrong, a multimedia artist, calls this his signature piece because it defines what he is trying to deliver to the viewer. “I want the images to explode off of the wall and I believe I have achieved that.”

Rick Armstrong – “Journey to the Hills”: 36” x 50” “Art should transport you,” says Armstrong. “My work is photographic-based and authentic, not Photoshopped.” This piece leads the viewer to a new experience of the Tetons and an opportunity to contemplate life and directions.

Rick Armstrong – “The World’s Not Always Black and White”: 30” x 50” Armstrong’s mixed media process begins with a photographic base. In final form, this baby zebra and its mother bring the viewer into a new relationship with nature.

Pat Flynn – Bracelet: Hand-forged nail, diamond and 22-karat gold

Kevin Box – “White Bison”: Cast bronze

New York artist Pat Flynn is in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian, Museum of Art & Design, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, to name a few. Pairing blackened steel with precious stones and metals, his eye-catching jewelry breaks new ground.

The history of art and the value of public art have long inspired Santa Fe artist Kevin Box, resulting in his being elected as the youngest member of the National Sculptors’ Guild and his subsequent recognition by SouthwestArt Magazine as one of the top 21 artists under 31 in the Southwest.

Matt Flint – “Wolf”: 48” x 48” A Wyoming artist and art professor, Flint’s work is in the permanent collections of the State of Wyoming and the Nicolaysen Art Museum. His work occurs directly on the canvas, his thought process revealed in an archive of various textures, worked surfaces and the qualities of light he explores. | 307-733-8726 | On the Town Square - 60 East Broadway, 2nd floor | 77

Sheridan Angus #3: Oil Encaustic on Canvas - 72” x 72” “Sheridan Angus #3” depicts one of Theodore Waddell’s favorite regions of Montana, where he has returned many times to paint. His Angus series was recently featured in a seven-month retrospective at the Denver Art Museum, “Abstract Angus.” Twenty-three works—paintings, drawings and sketches—challenged the perception that all Western American art is created in realistic style. Early influences like de Kooning, Hoffman, Pollock and Kline “ ... wanted you to know that the canvas had a presence,” Waddell says. “The paint had its own identity as well, with thick swatches, drips and blurbs.”

Thunderstorm Paints: Oil Encaustic on Canvas - 44” x 94”

theodore waddell Altamira Fine Art

Waddell’s art draws a deliberate parallel between his subject and abstract art elements. Animals are motifs arranged formally on a flattened and enveloping painted “ground,” characteristic of modernism. His diverse approaches, styles and techniques are brushed, knifed, dripped, jotted down, often thickly textured. Waddell’s early works were noted for their heavily textured surfaces, but newer works are more atmospheric, with translucent wax-medium layers suggesting the drift of grazing animals, transitions of days, movements of seasons. | 307-739-4700 | 172 Center Street 78 | homestead

September vhay Altamira Fine Art

Ebony and Ivory: Charcoal on Paper - 30” x 71” Realistic in form and detail, September Vhay’s paintings are impressionistic as well. Largely self-taught, her formal training as an architect greatly informs her work, and influences like Craig Sheppard, Scott Christensen and Deborah Butterfield have helped Vhay reach national audiences, as at the Coors Western Art Exhibit and Sale and the Cowgirl Up! show at the Desert Caballeros Western Museum in Wickenburg, Arizona.

Red Horse 20: Oil on Canvas - 48” x 48” Improvised from pure imagination, this collection of Japanese sumi-e brush paintings evokes the very essence of the animal. Because of her skill with watercolor, Vhay seamlessly achieves the freshness of watercolor with a saturation of color only possible in oils.

Grey Cloud Receding: Acrylic on Canvas - 48” x 76”

Horizon and Arroyos: Acrylic - 72” x 72”

With his complex Hopi-American heritage as inspiration, Dan Namingha has been hailed by Thomas Hoving, former curator and director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, as “ ... the most gifted, original and important Native American painter currently at work.”

Spiritual beliefs and symbolism imbue Namingha’s paintings and sculpture with dramatic impact. Constantly challenging himself with new styles, representations, abstractions and minimalism leads to fresh interpretations of beloved motifs and vistas.
