For the 24th year in a row, the Autry Museum of the American West is hosting Masters of the American West, an art sale of paintings and sculptures by contemporary Western artists. The event launches this Saturday, February 27 with a special sale of charming miniature paintings, the smallest of which measures just six by six inches.
The miniature paintings, which have been a popular tradition of the sale since 2005, are at a slightly more affordable price, ranging between $800 and $8,000. For those aiming to go bigger, the Major Works Art Sale launches Saturday, March 13, with works selling for anywhere between $5,000 and $100,000.
Amy Scott, a curator at the Autry and the executive vice president for Research and Interpretation, says the works featured in Masters depict “classic frontier stories” and “contemporary Native visions,” all in service of celebrating “the history and contemporary beauty of the West.” Expect paintings of trout streams and sun-drenched deserts, portraits of majestic horses and Native American Chiefs, and lovely sculptures of crawfish and prickly pear trees.
When: Saturday, February 27–Sunday, April 11
