The 41st Annual Western Spirit Art Show & Sale


The 41st Annual Western Spirit Juried Art Show & Sale will take place from Saturday, March 5th to April 17th, 2022. Artwork for the Western Spirit was selected by a two-person independent jury. Jurors Stephanie Hartshorn, a signature member of the American Impressionist Society and artist from the Cheyenne Frontier Days™ Western Art Show, and Mark Vinich, co-founder of Clay Paper Scissors Gallery & Studios, selected 232 unique pieces of art from a pool of 640. Western Spirit also features the Vandewark Miniature Show in the East Gallery of the Museum.

Western Spirit started in 1982 as a sibling show featuring Western contemporary art to the Cheyenne Frontier Days™ Western Art Show and Sale. Over the last forty years, Western Spirit has grown to become the premier Western Juried Art Show in the Rocky Mountain region for new and emerging artists.

On March 5th, we will kick off our 41st Western Spirit Juried Art Show and Sale with a Seminar beginning at 8:00am including 3 hour-long seminar presentations, and two Workshops starting at 1:00 and 2:30PM. Breakfast and lunch will be provided by the Museum. At 4:00PM we will wrap up the Workshop and prepare for the Opening Reception that begins at 5:00PM, March 5th.
