The Heart of the West Show presented by Western Masters

Lake Coeur d'Alene
I wanted to give everyone a heads up on a new show that's coming to Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. If you've never been to Coeur d'Alene in the summer, you're really missing out!  There is so much to do.  The golf is amazing, there's camping, hiking, all kinds of fishing from bass fishing to fly fishing, boating, the bicycle trails are world class and it's one of the most beautiful places in the U.S.  For the last few years, the Western Masters has put on the exhibitor show at the Heritage Inn in Great Falls, MT during Western Art Week when the C.M. Russell Museum hosts their annual fundraiser, The Russell.  I'll get in to Western Art Week in Great Falls soon enough, but if you're looking for a weekend getaway in August of 2015, Coeur d'Alene might be the destination.  The Heart of the West Show will be held at the world class Coeur d'Alene Resort featuring 50 exhibit rooms and a live auction of works by contemporary artists.  The show runs August 20th - 22nd, 2015.  Exhibit rooms are open 10am to 10pm and the auction will be held Saturday, August 22nd.  Some of the artists participating in the show via exhibit rooms or auction include Nancy Dunlop Cawdrey, Brent Cotton, Joe Kronenberg, Troy Collins, Randy Van Beek, Kyle Paliotto, Terry Hall, Whitney Hall, Krystii Melaine, David Marty, Colt Idol, Michael Ome Untiedt, and many more.

While you're in Coeur d'Alene, you can also check out the gallery scene featuring the Coeur d'Alene Galleries, The Art Spirit, Cisco's, The Painter's Chair and many other terrific galleries.  You can expect gorgeous weather with temperatures in the 80s or low 90s with cool evenings that are perfect for outdoor dining and socializing.
