#539 In the museums: Prix de West weekend, con't . . .

The Prix de West weekend is over . . . my work was well received and sales were brisk.   It's a great feeling for an artist to see names pulled out of the box and sales posted!  Below, are images of three of the four works I exhibited.
"Requiem for the Fallen" can be seen on the previous post . . .  # 538.

This was my 26th year participating in the prestigious invitational at the National Cowboy Museum and Western Heritage Center in Oklahoma City.  Museum shows such as the Prix de West and the winter invitational - the Autry in Los Angeles - continue to play a major role in the resurgent interest and excellence in figurative and representational art.

Below, are images and memories of the 2014 Prix de West.

Below, the sculpture, "Pigmalion" sold in the fun-filled Saturday night gala, sale, and auction.   The annual auction carries the festiveness of Prix de West into the Awards Banquet and provides important fundraising support for the museum.
