How Illustrators and Cowboy Artists Saved Realism

Vern G. Swanson, Ph.D.
Emeritus Director
Springville Museum of Art, Springville, Utah

The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum hosts its prestigious invitational art exhibit of over 300 Western paintings and sculpture by the finest contemporary Western artists in the nation with art seminars, receptions and awards banquet. The exhibiting artists bring a diversity of styles to this prestigious art exhibition. Works range from historical pieces that reflect the early days of the West, to more contemporary and impressionist works of art. Landscapes, wildlife and illustrative scenes are always highlighted in the exhibition.

Reservations are required for opening activities. This annual exhibition kicks off with two days of seminars on art-related topics and art demonstrations. The weekend culminates with a fixed-price sale of all the exhibition pieces.

Exhibition and Sale continue through August 4, 2013
