The Buffalo Bill Art Show & Sale offers works relating to the land, people, and wildlife of the American West. Artists offer a broad range of stylistic interpretations of the West, in oil painting, watercolor, pastel, sculpture, ceramic, and mixed media. All works are original art.
The Buffalo Bill Art Show & Sale benefits the prestigious Buffalo Bill Center of the West as well as the Cody Country Chamber of Commerce. The Buffalo Bill Art Show & Sale is held in conjunction with the Center’s Patrons Ball black tie gala, and By Western Hands’ Functional Design Exhibition, all of which are part of the annual Rendezvous Royale Week in Cody, Wyoming.
The art exhibition, housed in the Buffalo Bill Center of the West’s John Bunker Sands Photography Gallery, is free for public viewing each September. Main events include the Friday evening auction, where guests view the exhibition a final time, then stroll next door to the beautiful party tent adjacent to the museum for food, drinks, live music, and a spirited live auction; and the Saturday morning Quick Draw, where guests enjoy breakfast then observe nearly thirty painters and sculptors at work in the Robbie Powwow Garden, often using live models, to complete a piece in one hour.
