Announcing the 2018 Buffalo Bill Art Show & Sale on September 21 and 22, 2018. From the art auction and event organizers:
Our 2018 artists are sending new pieces for this auction that benefits the Buffalo Bill Center of the West and has for 37 years been a highlight of Rendezvous Royale week in Cody, WY. Cody is preparing the proverbial red carpet for guests and patrons of the arts to come to Cody for a week filled with fun, excitement, art, music, fellowship, and great food.
Guests come to:
• Take classes and/or watch demonstrations by the current artists in the show.
• Enjoy a fast-paced auction on Friday night and a Quick Draw on Saturday morning.
• Participate in a reunion with friends and artists from across the nation.
• Purchase art and get to know artists they admire.
This year the show has 12 new artists who will come to meet their buyers, knowing their pieces will be going to great homes. Volunteers come to help produce the show and share in the excitement of this week of artful events.
Mr. Tim Newton of the oldest art club in America, the Salmagundi Club of New York City, will be our featured speaker about the connection between club members and the visual beauty of the west. (Listen to Tim Newton on the Plein Air Art Podcast with Eric Rhoads below.) Jim Bortz, a freshman in the show, will be teaching a plein air class on the Shoshone River at one of Cody’s historic landmarks, the Wapiti Lodge. He will teach the plein air by day and in the evening invite guests to fish with him of the famous Shoshone River.
As Kathy Thompson, director of the show, likes to say, “Rendezvous Royale and especially the Buffalo Bill Art Show & Sale is the most fun you can have in a great western town and still be legal!”
