Phippen Western Art Show & Sale



This Memorial Day Weekend I will be at the 35th annual Phippen Museum Western Art Show and Sale. I really like this show for it's fine location - five minutes from my house in Prescott! But really, it is a great honor to be chosen again to participate in this year's show. From the Phippen Museum website, "The annual event features Art of the American West represented in oil, watercolor, acrylic, mixed media, pastels, sculpture and drawing. The Phippen Museum Western Art Show and Sale has been a tradition of the Memorial Day Weekend in Prescott since 1974. The Phippen Museum believes the true spirit of the American West is preserved in its art. This show brings together artists of the highest caliber, art enthusiasts and collectors from all over the country to celebrate Prescott’s rich western heritage and culture."

Located in Prescott's beautiful downtown courthouse square, the show will be held Sat, Sun and Mon., May 23 - 25, 9 - 5 pm (3 pm on the Monday). I will be in booth # 71 near the corner of Montezuma St. (aka Whiskey Row) and Gurley St.

Also, this year I will participating in both the Saturday and Sunday quick draw events. From the website, "One of the most exciting parts of the Annual Phippen Museum Western Art Show and Sale is the Quick Draw events that are held on Saturday and Sunday beginning at 2 p.m. This fast-paced event is a 45-minute, timed demonstration by 15 to 20 artists creating a piece of art in front of the public starting with a completely blank canvas. The pieces are then auctioned off to the audience. The auction will begin at approximately 3 p.m."


The new work shown above will be at the show.
