One of the nation’s premier art shows and sale is only one week away. There’s sure to be BBQ, brews, cocktails, music, and the finest Western art by more than 175 of America’s top artists, of course. Yee-haw!
Join Southwest Gallery on October 22-24 for the Traveling the West Art Show & Sale in Dallas, Texas, one of the nation’s most outstanding fine art events. Over 175 artists will be featured, and collectors, connoisseurs, and the casual art lover can expect innumerable works of art showcasing the American West, complete with trains, planes, horses, scenes of Native American life, wagons, cattle, and more. Events begin on Thursday, October 22, at Southwest Gallery and continue through the weekend. Via the event website, organizers note, “‘Traveling the West’ touches on all areas of western life. From the earliest days of the Mountain Men, to the great push west after the Civil War. All moments in western history are included; wagon trains, cattle drives, ranch life, wildlife, hunting, fishing, the great railroads, and the first pilots that brought the airplane to the west are remembered.”
