The Autry’s “Masters of the American West Art Exhibition and Sale” is considered one of the country’s premier Western art shows. In 2018, the exhibition returns with great excitement and anticipation. When does it begin?
Each year, 70 nationally recognized contemporary Western artists challenge themselves to create and exhibit their very best work during the Autry Museum of the American West’s “Masters of the American West” show and sale. Stylistically and thematically diverse, their works represent the extraordinary range of subject matter that contemporary, historic, and mythic Western experiences inspire.
New artists for the 2018 show and sale include Tony Abeyta, Thomas Blackshear, Scott Burdick, Glenn Dean, Sue Lyon, Mark Maggiori, Eric Merrell, Dan Ostermiller, Kevin Red Star, and Mateo Romero. The opening-day program includes presentations by artists Jeremy Lipking and Daniel W. Pinkham, and a luncheon with an awards presentation. The lively event continues into the evening with a cocktail reception and fine art sale, where patrons and artists alike join in the festivities and approximately 275 fixed-price works are sold through a drawing. The exhibition and sale opens on February 10 and will continue through March 25.
