We’re just weeks away from the greatly anticipated exhibition and sale from the C.M. Russell Museum in Great Falls, Montana. Collectors and connoisseurs should take note, as some of the best Western fine art on the market today could be your next acquisition.
The annual exhibition and sale to benefit the C.M. Russell Museum in Great Falls, Montana, is without a doubt one of the most highly anticipated fine art events in the country, and we’re just weeks away from the main event. In fact, a few events have already kicked off during the month of February, including “The Russell Exhibition” – on view now through March 17 at the C.M. Russell Museum — a temporary show that offers potential collectors and art lovers the chance at an up-class encounter with just a few of the available works.
The main exhibition and sale for 2016 will take place in Great Falls from March 17-19 and features several tantalizing events. Among the attractions are an “Art Preview Party” on March 17 from 6-8 p.m. “Art in Action” will take place on March 18 and will “give nationally known artists several hours to finish a piece of art while interacting with guests,” as the museum writes. A “First Strike Auction” will be hosted on the 18th at 6 p.m., focusing solely on works by contemporary artists. Finally, the major “Russell Auction” will take place at 4:30 p.m. on March 19 and feature contemporary art plus historical works in a competitive bidding atmosphere.
