The Brinton Museum
Through August 26, 2023

The Brinton Museum is set to host the eighth edition of its popular Bighorn Rendezvous exhibition. On view will be oils, monotypes, pastels, and bronzes created by invited artists Roger Broer, Tammy Callens, Sonja Caywood, Jim Jackson, T. D. Kelsey, Tom Lockhart, David Mensing, Anton Nowels, Julie Oriet, Gregory Packard, Gerald Shippen, Kathy Wipfler, and Scott Yeager.

This show will conclude with a bang on August 26. That morning, these 13 artists (plus their colleague Jerry Salinas) will be found working all over the museum’s scenic property as they create new Quick Draw works to be auctioned at the gala later that day.

Also on view at the museum this summer are two other exhibitions.

Running through September 4 is a celebration of the multigenerational creativity within one Apsáalooke family; it showcases the work of artist Ben Pease V (b. 1989) alongside the artistic journey of eight generations of his ancestors, relatives, and children.

The Brinton Museum owns nearly 200 works by Ed Borein (1872–1945), most of them ink drawings and etchings. Born in California, Borein worked full-time as a cowboy before turning to art, ultimately channeling his deep experience to create hundreds of works depicting cowboys from every possible angle.

This show runs through October 2, and on July 21, scholar B. Byron Price will speak about Borein, whom he has researched in depth.
