The Cheyenne Frontier Days™ Western Art Show is an invitational show which features the nation’s top Western artists presenting original art that celebrates the heritage and the future of the American West. Over the last 39 years, this high-caliber Art Show has become the Cheyenne Frontier Days Old West Museum’s largest fundraiser supporting Arts Education, Exhibits, Collections, and Operations.
The Opening Reception kicks off with a sneak peek of the Carriage Hall filled with exclusive, never-before-shown art. Shortly after, you are transported to the Governor’s residence where the Governor and the First Lady host a cocktail party on the lawn, giving you a chance to mingle with the artists and enjoy the beautiful Wyoming outdoors. After the cocktail hour, you return to the Museum where the real fun begins, with a sales drawing, and opportunity to “Jump the Gun” on the sales, and a live art auction.
This year, the Art Show is featuring six new artists: Barbara Summer Edwards, Howard Halbert, Peggy Judy, David Riley, Georgia Roswell, and David Santillanes. The Museum’s Young Professional group, The Mavericks, selected a piece from the Western Spirit Art Show and Sale, “Wicked” by Robin Cook, to be featured and available for sale in the CFD Western Art Show as the third ever Mavericks’ Choice piece.
