Fine jewelry in a quaint location. We started our gallery adventure here, right next to the Bunnery.
The entry to Gaslight Alley where many intriguing stores can be found including:
|Dan Shelley Jewelry
Dan Shelley had many pieces I loved, and was inspired by, including turquoise inlaid moose necklaces, elk horn jewelry and Teton inspired bracelets.
|Made (Handmade Repurposed Found)
125 North Cache
This store included many handmade items from leatherbound journals to hand crocheted stuffed animals. Lots of wonderful things made by local artists.
|Crazy Horse Jewelry
125 N Cache St
So many gorgeous pieces of native american jewelry. I did buy myself a really nice pair of turquoise and silver earrings. I’ve been looking for a pair for almost 5 years. I needed to love them and they had to be something I could afford. Happy early birthday to me.
|Mursells Pottery & Chocolates
125 N Cache St
Mmmm, chocolates. But I was strong and abandoned the shop quickly. Great pottery too.
|Jackson Hole Hat Company

An astounding number of a variety of hats including cowboy, bowler and awesome steampunk top hats.

This tiny gallery was almost overlooked but it is packed with art and jewelry

The prints David Brookover creates are magic, luminescent, uplifting the sometimes mundane to new heights. This gallery is part of Gaslight Alley.
Wild by Nature Gallery

Great nature and wildlife photographer’s gallery. I ended up buying a few notecards. His Great Gray Owl photos are amazing.
And then we found a whole new set of galleries
IMAGE: “Ponds Romance”by Katherine McNeill Oil 36″x36” at the West Lives On Gallery
IMAGE: “Once in a Blue Moose”by Karl Lansing Bronze edition of 15 at the West Lives On Gallery, one of Shanna’s favorites. In this picture it is hard to see the starry skies detailed on this moose.
IMAGE: “Champayne in the Snow” by Connie Frasca & Karen Halliday Mixed 84″ x 48″ at the West Lives on Gallery, another of Shanna’s favorites and again this photo doesn’t do it justice the mane is made of a single piece of wood polished and carved.
West Lives on Gallery 1 & 2

Astoria Fine Art
35 East Deloney
IMAGE: “Long-Tailed Ducks” by Ewoud De Groot Oil 55″ x 55″ at Astoria Fine Art Gallery
One of the things that is true of art galleries in Jackson is the predominance of the western and natural world theme. And yes, there are many, many traditional pieces. Yet the traditional is leavened with those that bring something new such as this Long-Tailed Ducks with the sparkling of the water effected in such beauty.
Here’s another example of a traditional theme, birds in the fall imagined in a whole new modern way.
IMAGE: “Fall Colors” by Don Rambadt Welded Bronze, Stainless Steel & Goldleaf 33″ x 32″ x 12″ at the Astoria Fine Art Gallery

Back at the car my feet were very unhappy, but the visual feast we had was fulfilling in so many ways. We did drive out to the cloud covered Tetons and then back home stopping frequently for pictures (see previous blog post).
Next time, we need to find a decent, but cheap hotel so we can spend check out the other galleries
