2013 Prix de West Results and Award Winners

The National Cowboy Hall of Fame sold $2.6 million at the opening weekend of their 40th annual Prix de West Show.  There was a great turnout for the largest annual fundraiser for the museum, and patrons came prepared to support the museum and add to their collections.  Almost all the artists sold at least one piece while quite a few had sold out shows including Carrie Ballantyne, Greg Beecham, G. Russell Case, Luke Frazier, Martin Grelle and Curt Walters.  Winning awards at shows like the Prix de West or Masters of the American West at the Autry Museum can be huge boosts for artists and their careers and are terrific collection factors.  Here are this year's award winners:
