W. Tucker's intuitive painting graces found items at Tayloe Piggott

May 13, 2020 - Gabe Allen, Jackson Hole News & Guide

If you came across W. Tucker’s work “open / fragile” on the side of the street you might wonder if a child with a marker had defaced an old cardboard gift container.

In Tucker’s exhibition, “Heads in the Mountains,” recurring motifs — heads, blobby figures, boats and animals — populate the pages of old ledger books, used watch boxes, worn antique book covers and recycled plywood. The sparse poetry of each title instills weight and mystery into the highly intuitive works.

Everything You Need to Know to Plan a Trip to Jackson Hole

March 2, 2019 - Goop

Tayloe Piggott set out to open her gallery with one intention: to connect the creative pursuits and interests of Jackson residents with the outside world. Her bright, light-filled gallery features a thoughtful curation of fine jewelry (Monique Pean, Gabriella Kiss) and contemporary artwork (Alex Katz, Sebastian Blanck) from around the world. Don’t miss the Project Space, a constantly evolving platform for local and 
lesser-known artists to share their work. Last summer, local Jackson photographer Tuck Fauntleroy’s Waterline series captured rivers in the American West from an aerial perspective just as the ice started to melt—a project the artist had been working on for more than a decade.

Chosen By: Jenn Rice is a freelance culinary arts and travel writer for digital outlets such as Vogue, Domino, Sunset, Food & Wine, Extra Crispy and more. She spends the majority of her time galavanting around the globe in search of interesting bites and chefs, lesser-known wine regions and up-and-coming cities and destinations.

If vino is your jam, the team at Enoteca showcases interesting finds from around the world. During the 2018-19 ski season, the husband-wife duo behind nearby hot spots Streetfood at the Stagecoach and Butter Cafe will open a pop-up coffee shop in the AspensJackson Hole Food & Wine’s slopeside winter fest (February 28 to March 2) returns with guest chef Richard Blais, local Teton Village chefs and celebrated mixologists, winemakers and tastemakers from near and far. If you're in town, grab a spicy Mexican hot chocolate from Coco Love, helmed by master chocolatier Oscar Ortega, and peruse local photographer Tuck Fauntleroy’s Waterline series, capturing remote Yellowstone rivers during a precise window of time during spring, at Tayloe Piggott Gallery. Also keep an eye out for pop-ups from Hide Altitude: Their cowhide bags should be on everyone’s must-get list. It will be hard to leave without a stop by Mursell’s Sweet Shop for confectionaries from around the world, MADEfor handmade curiosities and Persephone Bakery for a kouign amann. Save room for a meat-filled sandwich from Sweet Cheeks Meats and a few cold ones at the Roadhouse Pub & Eatery — a new gastropub-meets-test kitchen where beer fanatics get the chance to test new brews before anyone else. Where to stay? Featuring artwork by local artist Amy Ringholz, Four Seasons Resort Jackson Hole is a solid bet if you're seeking a snowglobe-like stay and shredding in a pair of the resort’s exclusive Sego skis. Or check out the Anvil Hotel, a hip boutique hotel in the heart of town with a mercantile selling warm-weather goods, spiked hot chocolate libations from New York City’s Death & Co., whiskey tastings, cookie classes with Lady in the Wild West and Glorietta, an Italian trattoria that’s arguably the best eatery in town.
