There’s still ample time for you and your family to plan a trip to Los Angeles this February for an incredible Western art exhibition and Sale. Some extra incentive is just one click away. Details here!
Seventy-six premier Western artists will highlight 2017’s edition of the Masters of the American West Art Exhibition and Sale, slated to open at Los Angeles’ Autry Museum on February 11. Now in its 20th year, the event has a reputation for being a top destination for art collectors.
With the event running through March 26, the Autry will also host several concurrent events alongside the exhibition and sale. Among the nationally and internationally known artists in this year’s show are Bill Anton, George Carlson, Tammy Garcia, Robert Griffing, Z.S. Liang, Kyle Polzin, Mian Situ, Tucker Smith, Curt Walters, and Morgan Weistling. Proceeds will help benefit the museum’s dynamic educational programs, collections conservation, and much more.
Opening day is slated to be quite a celebration. From 8:30 to 10 A.M., an early preview of the show will be offered to sponsors and Masters ticket holders who also have an Autry membership at the Copper level or higher. Award-winning painters John Fawcett and Tammy Garcia will also be on hand for a “State of the Art” luncheon with an awards presentation. Festivities continue well into the evening with a cocktail reception and fine art sale, “where patrons and artists join in festivities and approximately 275 fixed-priced works are sold through a drawing,” organizers write.
Autry Chief Curator Amy Scott said, “The ‘State of the Art’ conversations represent our effort to understand the experience of Masters from the artists’ point of view. It is important for us to know what artists are thinking when creating work for museum exhibitions, and we want to ensure that Masters is a success for artists, the Autry, and our audience.”
