The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum is set to launch its 50th annual Prix de West Invitational Art Exhibition & Sale, always one of the field’s highest-quality events. On display are more than 300 paintings and sculpture created by nearly 100 invited talents, including special guest artists Grant Redden and D. LaRue Mahlke. Their works depict landscapes, wildlife, figures, portraits, and momentous moments in Western history and lore.

Prix de West is the museum’s largest annual fundraiser, with last year’s revenues totaling more than $2.8 million. This year the accompanying catalogue has been expanded to include an in-depth history of the project’s first half-century.

The action really gets underway on the weekend of June 17–18, when collectors in person and online will enjoy a range of seminars, workshops, receptions, dinners, award presentation, and of course the live auction. About to participate in his 40th Prix de West, artist Gerald Balciar was invited to design this year’s commemorative bolo (tie), which dedicated attendees wear throughout the opening weekend.
