The Western Masters Art Show, 2013 - Great Falls, Montana

Live Auction floor at Heritage Inn
It's that time of year again where we hop in the car and make the scenic drive to Great Falls, Montana for the annual C.M. Russell Museum's annual benefit auction, the Western Masters Art Show, and March in Montana auction.  Mark your calendars for the festivities that begin March 13th and run through March 16th.  Western Art Week in Great Falls, MT is as strong as its ever been!  If you're a fan of Western, Wildlife, and Sporting art, you want to attend this show at least once.

The Western Masters Art Show boasts over 140 artists and galleries that exhibit in 109 rooms at the Best Western Heritage Inn in Great Falls, MT.  With quick draws, auctions and the wonderful opportunity to meet artists and patrons with the common passion of Western art, WMAS is unlike any other show in the country.  To learn more, check out their website by clicking HERE.  Once again, Coeur d'Alene Galleries will be in exhibit room #292 at the Heritage Inn.  We'll have another great selection of works by deceased artists like Charles Russell, O.C. Seltzer, John Fery, Philip Goodwin, Nick Eggenhofer, Sydney Laurence, Hank Lawshe, William Standing, Bob Kuhn and Carl Rungius. We can't leave out the great selection of contemporary artists that include: George Carlson, Charles Fritz, Logan Maxwell Hagege, Chad Poppleton, Brett Smith, Nicholas Coleman, Luke Frazier, Kyle Sims, Tim Shinabarger, Andy Thomas and Terry Mimnaugh.
