In one of the most significant happenings to hit the world of fine art, the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum hosts a kick-off event and sale for two outstanding exhibitions. TCAA showcases the best of saddlemaking, bit and spur making, silversmithing and rawhide braiding, while the CAA features art from members who celebrate the West through painting, drawing, and sculpture.

The Cowboy Artists of America (CAA) are the vanguard of the Western art revival that began in the 1960s, and they continue to set the mark for those who carry on the legacy today. The CAA Mission is to authentically preserve and perpetuate the culture of Western life in fine art.

This year marks the Cowboy Artists of America 53rd Annual Sale & Exhibition. Paintings, drawings, and sculptures will be on display and available for purchase. No formal invitation is needed, but reservations are required for most opening weekend activities.
