May 27th, 28th & 29th, 2017
The Phippen Museum will offer another outstanding presentation of fine art at our 43rd Annual Western Art Show & Sale. A Memorial Day weekend tradition on Prescott, Arizona's historic courthouse plaza for more than 40 years, this extremely popular art event attracts art enthusiasts, Western collectors and visitors from far and wide, along with some of the nation's most talented artists.
In fact, many of today's most well-known Western artists got their start as juried participants in the Phippen show, creating artwork in oil, watercolor, acrylic, mixed media, pastel, sculpture and drawing. And although this annual juried show features well established artists, up-and-comers who create 'Art of the American West' are also well represented. So not only do guests see some of the greatest examples of Western art in America today, they're also able to meet participating artists in an informal, outdoor setting and purchase pieces directly from the masters.
And with the successful Miniature Masterpiece Show and Sale and the new Phippen Award Winners (PAWs): Small Works to Go Exhibition, this year's presentation will offer many special events to keep attendees entertained and involved, including the extremely popular Quick Draw challenges, the fun-filled Denim to Diamonds Gala at the Plaza View Ballroom, a public artist award ceremony and free admission to the museum all weekend long (Sat., Sun. & Mon., May 27th - 29th from 10AM to 3PM).
