Mark your calendar now for the America's Horse in Art opening on August 16.

America’s Horse in Art returns to the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame & Museum in Amarillo with a list of more than 45 world-renowned Western artists providing pieces for the seventh annual art show and sale. Mark your calendar now for the show’s opening on August 16 or plan a trip to view this year’s exhibit before it closes November 8.

The signature piece for the 2014 show is an oil on canvas by renowned Western artist Edgar Sotelo. The piece is titled “Sentinel.” Sotelo, along with many of the contributing artists, will be at the opening, which is 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on August 16 at the Hall of Fame. The event will feature live music, hors d'oeuvres and cocktails.

Each piece of art – ranging from pencil drawings to sculptures – will be available for purchase on opening night.

All remaining pieces not sold on opening night will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis, beginning at 8 a.m. CDT on August 18. Art sales will be available online, by telephone at 806-376-5181 and by email at artshow@aqha.org. The purchased artwork will remain on exhibit until the show closes in November.

Proceeds from the sale of the art go to the Hall of Fame to support its efforts to preserve the history of the American Quarter Horse.
