The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum will hold Cowboy Crossings, a major lineup of fine art exhibitions and sales, on Oct. 12-13.
The museum will present the Cowboy Artists of America 47th annual sale and exhibition alongside the Traditional Cowboy Arts Association exhibition and sale, now in its 14th year.
The combination offers collectors of Western art an unparalleled opportunity in one location.
“Many people look to the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum as a leader in offering the very best in Western-based artistic expression in a variety of media. We take that responsibility seriously,” said Chuck Schroeder, president of the museum.
“Cowboy Crossings is perhaps the most unique combination of exquisite works in painting and sculpture, as well as leather, rawhide, silver and steel anywhere in the world.”
Art enthusiasts can attend the preview party Oct. 12 and on Oct. 13 can attend an autograph party at 10 a.m. with free admission into the museum until noon. A luncheon and panel discussion will be at 11:30 a.m. in the Sam Noble Special Events Center, followed by a fixed-price sale that evening.
The CAA exhibition and sale will continue through Nov. 25 and the association exhibit will be available for purchase through Jan. 6. Last year the show and sale hosted 42 artists and more than 400 guests totaling art sales of more than $2.2 million with a portion going to museum programs and operations.
