The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum played host to more than 100 artists at the fourth annual “Small Works, Great Wonders” Winter Art Sale on Nov. 19. The event included 245 Western paintings and sculptures by some of the finest contemporary Western artists in the nation. With a festive holiday atmosphere and high-caliber Western art, the one-night art sale generated more than $400,000, according to a news release.
The event attracts beginning and veteran art collectors at a relaxed, yet exciting, show. “Small Works, Great Wonders” kicked off in 2006, when the museum organized the inaugural sale designed to send art buyers home with purchases in hand and give new collectors an opportunity to start a Western collection with works that are smaller in size and price.
The small works of art created by nationally acclaimed artists went on display Nov. 5. Artists selected for the sale included many from the ranks of the museum’s annual Prix de West Invitational Art Exhibition and Sale, along with other invited painters and sculptors.
Buyers selected the works of art they wanted to purchase and awaited the fixed-price sale to come to a conclusion. A percentage of the sales from the yearly event benefits the nonprofit museum.
