For 19 years and counting, the Autry Museum of the American West has hosted a remarkable fine art exhibition and sale, which showcases some of the best examples of American Western painting and sculpture. This year’s event is sure to continue the tradition and opens in just a few weeks.
Organizers at the Autry Museum of the American West can barely sit still as they anticipate the opening of their “19th Annual Masters of the American West Fine Art Exhibition and Sale.” This year’s events will feature more than 75 of the most skilled and accomplished Western artists in the United States. Among many others, the acclaimed names include Bill Anton, George Carlson, Tammy Garcia, Robert Griffing, Z.S. Liang, Kyle Polzin, Mian Situ, Tucker Smith, Howard Terpning, and Morgan Weistling.
In addition to supporting fine artists, those who purchase artworks will have warm hearts knowing that proceeds support the Autry’s notable educational programs, ongoing collections, conservation, and more.
The exhibition and sale will honor the late John J. Geraghty — a longtime Autry trustee and special adviser to “Masters” — who passed away in March 2015 after a battle with cancer. The exhibition and sale will open on February 6, with opening-day programs including a luncheon and awards presentation. The festivities will continue into the evening with a cocktail reception and sale. The sale features approximately 275 works that will be sold through a drawing. The exhibition of works will remain on view through March 20.
