As the market for great Western American art continues to expand, so too do the opportunities to purchase it — coupled with cocktails, exhibitions, and more, of course.
From 2010 through 2014, the annual Western Art Week in Great Falls, Montana, established a tradition of fun and sales success — so much so that a new show and sale was established at the Coeur d’Alene Resort in Idaho: The Heart of the West Show. Taking place over three days this fall (September 1-4), the Heart of the West Show will feature over 60 juried artists and galleries, many of whom are regular attendees of previous Western Masters events.
Via the venue’s website: “The Heart of the West Show gives Western art lovers a unique opportunity to meet and talk to their favorite artists while enjoying food, drinks, demonstrations and educational presentations. Attendees inevitably connect and bond over a shared love of fine art while supporting local, regional, and national artists.”
The notable names featured in this year’s event include Colin Alexander, Nancy Dunlop Cawdrey, Scott Hayes, Joe Kronenberg, Cheryl King, and many more. “The Heart of the West Show” opens on September 1 and will continue through September 4. The auction will take place on Saturday, September 3.
