Out West Art Show and Sale

Out West Art Show and Sale

I had the great pleasure of attending the 2019 Out West Art Show this year. The amount of artwork in the various locations throughout Great Falls is overwhelming.  However, meeting the artists and viewing their work up close and personal was the highlight of my trip.

If you are are a collector who is thinking about attending, I definitely recommend it!

What Events To Attend

There are many activities to choose from. I especially enjoyed browsing the artist’s display of art in their rooms at the Heritage Inn.  Although the Mansfield Convention Center where the Skull Society artists display their artwork was a smaller venue, the artwork sure did pack a punch.

Watching “Art in Action” at the Meadowlark Country Club where 28 established artists paint among collectors and then auction off their paintings was very exciting. And the best part is that all proceeds from the sale benefit the CM Russell Museum.
