Starting on Friday, Oct. 11, the artwork of the Cowboy Artists of America and the Traditional Cowboy Arts Association will be showcased at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, OK.
The activities are branded as Cowboy Crossings, in reference to two distinct styles of art coming together in one opening event. This year’s opening weekend has taken a particular emphasis on the buyer experience and attracting new audiences.
The weekend’s activities will culminate with a sale of art on Saturday, which is set to attract art enthusiasts from across North America.
This will be the 49th Annual Sale and Exhibition for the Cowboy Artists of America, and the 16th Annual Sale and Exhibition for the Traditional Cowboy Arts Association.
There will be over 150 works of exceptional fine art from the CAA, and and functional fine art (such as saddlemaking, silversmithing, bit and spur making and rawhide braiding), from the TCAA, included in the fixed-price art sales.
Silversmithing has been producing beautiful buckles and horse jewelry for generations. Silver has long been synonymous with the American West, as a tradition forged in the early days of prospecting and the silver claims that created fortunes.
Following the exhibition opening and art sales, there will be a Cowboy Crossings Celebration Dinner and Concert, which will extend under the stars on the museum’s outdoor plaza, one of Oklahoma City’s most special venues.
The art sale is the principal event of the night. Total value of the art exceeds $2.3 million. A portion of the proceeds benefits the nonprofit National Cowboy Museum. Both exhibitions remain on display through Jan. 4, 2015.
There is also a special weekend package offered to experience the sights and sounds of Oklahoma City, as part of the Cowboy Crossings festivities. This will include a motor coach tour of the city, and fine dining on the 34th floor of the Chase Tower.
