Four Seasons Resort and Residences Jackson Hole to Host Summer Artist-in-Residence Borbay


May 3, 2017,
Jackson Hole, U.S.A.

Beginning Saturday, May 27, 2017, guests of Four Seasons Resort and Residences Jackson Hole will find Time Out Magazine’s Most Creative New Yorker and Teton Springs resident Borbay painting in the Ascent Lounge. He will create a new work capturing the beauty of Jackson Hole each week, and will exhibit the pieces along the way in an ongoing, pop-up art gallery experience.

“In late 2015, I contacted Nina Braga, Director of Public Relations and Communications for the Resort, to ask if I could paint paint the gorgeous Four Seasons view and she loved the idea! We reconnected when I returned in March. Both pieces have now been sold but beyond the success, and splendour of painting in one of the world’s finest resorts, I realised as a work-at-home father of three just how important it is to spend some time outside my studio,” says Borbay.

The public is invited to stop by, grab a cocktail, jump into the time lapse video of his process and join Borbay as he creates. Dan Myers, Food and Beverage Director, had this to say of the collaboration: “During Borbay’s first two mini-residencies, we noticed a certain electricity flowing through Four Seasons. Both our guests and staff were excited to see the creativity and interact with the artist, so we decided to expand the engagement, and bring Borbay in for the entire summer.”

This will be Borbay’s second long term residency. In 2015, he helped create Art Exuma in the Bahamas, and was the first artist-in-residence. Since relocating to Teton Valley, Borbay has shown in a large-scale, solo exhibition at The Art Association of Jackson Hole, and, most recently, shared his work at the Art Barre Soirée, a one-night-only pop-up exhibition hosted by The Certior Group, at Ski Barre in The Aspens.
