#38 In the Field: Art Show and Sale, Buffalo Bill Historical Center, Cody, Wyoming

Sandy and artist
Carrie Ballantyne
I attend several museum sponsored juried invitational art shows a year.
They are an opportunity to meet collectors, museum, gallery and media folks and
sell art in a gala museum setting.

I particularly enjoy seeing old friends among the artists and meeting new ones.  I consider the shows an "in the field" experience for several reasons, namely:
- To sell art.
- To extract the most from art that was created by past masters in the
  museum collections.
- To see new works created by fellow artists

       Although I'm influenced by the antique and 19th century
       animaliers in France and America, I continue to be impressed by
       various living artists' style.  They, like me, are enjoying a
       resurgent interest in representational and figurative art.

       An artist's style emerges on its own unless there is an attempt to
       copy others.  Style is individual and personal.
