A reception with artist John Simms celebrates his sculpture, "Angled Ellipse" with a champagne toast on the northeast corner of The Center on Cache Street during the Palates & Palettes Gallery Walk. The metal, kinetic sculpture revolves as the wind blows and was recently installed outside the music wing entrance to The Center for the Arts on Cache Street. Simms was recently named the featured sculptor of the 2019 Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival, which celebrates its 35th anniversary next month. 

Simms' sculptures play on his background in geometry. He moved to Jackson Hole in the early 1960s and began creating tools for avalanche forecasting that he sold all over the world. He later developed fly-fishing gear and started Simms Fishing Products, according to a press release from The Center.
