The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum is set to launch its 51st annual Prix de West Invitational Art Exhibition & Sale, always one of the field’s highest-quality events. Opening on June 2 will be a display of nearly 300 paintings and sculptures created by 88 invited talents. Their works depict landscapes, wildlife, figures, portraits, and significant moments in Western history and lore. Among those participating for the first time are Daniel Keys, Don Oelze, Peregrine O’Gormley, and Gladys Roldan-de-Moras. Prix de West is the museum’s largest annual fundraiser, with last year’s revenues totaling more than $4 million.

The action really gets underway on the weekend of June 9–10, when collectors in-person and online will enjoy a range of seminars, workshops, receptions, dinners, awards presentations, fixed-price sales, and of course the live auction. About to participate in his 30th Prix de West, artist Steve Kestrel was invited to design this year’s commemorative bolo (tie), which dedicated attendees will wear throughout the opening weekend.
To make reservations, see the full schedule, or arrange to bid by proxy, please visit the museum’s website.
