Desert Caballeros Western Museum is hosting the 16th annual “Cowgirl Up! Art from the Other Half of the West” Invitational Exhibition and Sale.

For 16 years, “Cowgirl Up!” has attracted emerging and established women artists from all over the country who depict the Western lifestyle in painting, drawing and sculpture. Each year, more than 300 applicants are reviewed; this year, over 60 were selected as representative of the top women Western fine artists today for the largest exhibition yet.

From the organizers:

“Cowgirl Up!” is much more than a show. It’s a crossroads where artists, collectors and art enthusiasts come together to explore what it means to be a Western artist. These artists ride the range of techniques, styles, and mediums, from traditional to contemporary. All of the art is available for purchase, meaning that each sale supports the endeavors of women artists working today and of the Desert Caballeros Western Museum. The art can be bought throughout the run of the exhibition at the Museum or online at westernmuseum.org

The exhibition opens March 28, 2021 and the main gallery paintings and sculptures will remain on exhibition throughout the run of the show. The last day will be September 5, 2021.
