 Message from Corey Milligan, Founder, New West KnifeWorks & New West Fine Art:

The New West Fine Art Gallery showcases the work of local Jackson Hole Artist, Connor Liljestrom, next to New West KnifeWorks in our newly renovated space on the Jackson, WY Town Square.
Connor and I first met playing rugby when he was in high school. Four or five years ago while Connor was away studying his craft, he told me he wanted to come back to Jackson and make a living as a painter. I immediately knew I would do everything I could to help him. You see, I grew my business selling knives at fine art and craft shows around the country, and while exhibiting on the road, I always took in the work of the artists exhibiting their work. Over the course of 20 years, I developed my eye quite a bit. This is how I know that Connor is special and we are lucky to have this homegrown talent in Jackson Hole.
It is my belief that Connor will be the leading Western Contemporary artist of his generation. I hope you will visit the New West Fine Art Gallery soon. Please contact the gallery manager, Allison, if you would like a personal tour.
Stay Sharp,
Corey Milligan

New West Fine Art Gallery specializes in the curation and sale of contemporary art referencing the American West. With a primary focus on painting, but also including sculpture and wearable pieces, the gallery shows progressive contemporary artists examining the West in an exciting and thought-provoking manner. Owner Corey Milligan, also founder of New West KnifeWorks, founded the gallery in 2019 with this vision in collaboration with artist and friend, Connor Liljestrom.

The gallery is excited to be working with the emergent standout and will open with a dynamic one year solo exhibition of Liljestrom’s work.

New West Fine Art works with private collectors, design groups, and corporations to contribute to collections both domestically and internationally. The gallery will also be seeking to participate in international art fairs.

New West Fine Art Gallery is dedicated to providing an exceptional experience from introduction and viewership, to acquisition and delivery of pieces. The gallery offers private showing by appointment.
