Thru Aug. 2 –
A five-decade tradition, the Prix de West Invitational Art Exhibition, the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum’s annual exhibit that attracts the best in Western art, continues this month. More than 100 artists, including three new artists – C. Michael Dudash, Scott Tallman Powers and Charles Timothy Prutzer – share more than 300 paintings and sculptures with the Oklahoma City museum. With pieces depicting landscapes, wildlife, people and more, the displayed artworks include historical pieces that reflect the early days of the west as well as those more contemporary. This exhibit serves as another way the museum preserves and interprets the evolving history and cultures of the American West. See oil paintings From a Boy to a Man by Daniel F. Gerhartz, Following The Sun by Ken Carlson and As the Sun Fades in the West by Tim Cox; bronze sculptures By A Nose by Tim Cherry and Desert View by Geral Balciar; and many other Western wonders. Prix de West will run through Aug. 2. The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit www.nationalcowboymuseum.org.
