The Autry presents its 22nd Annual “Masters of the American West” Art Exhibition and Sale.
This exhibition and fundraiser celebrates premier Western art and artists. Proceeds from “Masters” support the Autry’s dynamic educational programs, ongoing collections conservation, and much more.
Featuring 64 nationally recognized Western artists, including George Carlson, Dennis Doheny, Tammy Garcia, Z. S. Liang, Jeremy Lipking, Tim Solliday, Kevin Red Star, Mian Situ, Curt Walters, and Morgan Weistling.
Artists new to “Masters” in 2019 include Eric Bowman, G. Russell Case, and Howard Post. They will join fellow established artists in this annual exhibition and sale.
“‘Masters’ in 2019 continues to expand its footprint in the world of contemporary art of the American West, a place as diverse as the artistic traditions represented throughout its long history,” said Amy Scott, the Autry’s executive vice president for research and interpretation and Marilyn B. and Calvin B. Gross curator of visual arts. “‘Masters’ celebrates these histories through images and narratives that speak to the exceptional environment, cultural past, and dynamic present of the American West.”
A ticketed opening-day program includes presentations by artists and a luncheon with an awards presentation. The lively event continues into the evening with a cocktail reception and art sale, where patrons and artists alike join in the festivities and approximately 250 fixed-price works are sold through a drawing.
“Masters of the American West” takes place February 9 through March 24, 2019, at the Autry Museum of the American West (Los Angeles, CA). For additional details, visit TheAutry.org/Masters.
