Experience one of the most anticipated events in the world of Western art at the 46th Prix de West Invitational Art Exhibition and Sale. Housed at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum from June 8 to Aug. 5, the show displays more than 300 paintings and sculptures by Western artists. Works range from historical scenes to contemporary, impressionistic pieces.

The event “is both a visual and social showcase of how the museum celebrates the American West through incredible art,” says Natalie Shirley, museum president and CEO.

The opening weekend offers seminars, demonstrations, auctions, classes, a trunk show and a juried art show. Among the myriad offerings, art remains the focal point.

“The artwork is truly second to none, and unless you’ve seen it in person, you can’t imagine the intricacy and skill involved,” marketing manager Tara Carr says. “I love taking time to examine each piece up close to really gain an appreciation for the masterful works.”
