Last But Not Least 36 x 48 by Bill Anton
If you are a Western Art Collector,  be sure to check out the annual Prix de West exhibition and sale at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum coming up very soon (June 8th--August 5th, 2012). In addition to seminars and art demonstrations, and an awards banquet, there will be some great paintings by top contemporary Western artists for sale on "draw" and collectors can put their names in for a chance to purchase at favorable prices if their names are drawn.

You can get more information on the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum website , and then click on On-line Catalog link  to preview the art that will be available. If a painting wins an award at the exhibition, it will become part of the museum's permanent collection,  and will not be available for purchase, but there will still be many great works of art to try for.

If you can't attend in person, arrangements can be made to put in for the draw by proxy, or our gallery can assist you with the process. Contact J Watson Fine Art at 661 476-7558 or e-mail us at Tickets are required to participate. $75 for members and & $85 for non-members, which helps the museum.
