VIP opportunities to meet artists start October 4 in Oklahoma City at the annual Cowboy Crossings art sale and exhibition. The event is hosted by the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, and 2017’s looks like one to remember.

Opening to the public on October 15, Cowboy Crossings has become one of the nation’s foremost annual Western art sales and exhibitions. The exhibition offers a unique combination of more than 150 pieces, featuring the Cowboy Artists of America (CAA) 52nd Annual Sale & Exhibition as well as the Traditional Cowboy Arts Association (TCAA) 19th Annual Exhibition and Sale.

“The quality and diversity of perspectives exhibited in Cowboy Crossings is indicative of how vast and relevant the West is to everyone today,” said museum President and CEO Steven Karr. “Western art is at the foundation of the National Cowboy Museum’s mission, and the combination of working art, such as saddles and spurs, with fine art, like paintings and sculptures, enables everyone to find a part of their West.”

The CAA exhibition will be on display through November 26, while works by TCAA artists will be on exhibit through January 7. To learn more, visit the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum.
