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 ninth annual art show and sale. Mark your calendar now for the show’s opening on August 13 or plan a trip to view this year’s exhibit before it closes October 15.
The signature piece for the 2016 show is by artist Iwona Jankowski. The piece is titled “Western Dust – Mottled Horses.” Jankowski, along with many of the contributing artists, will be at the opening, which is 6:30-8:30 p.m. on August 13 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 but can be viewed online as soon as August 3, 2016. For those who cannot attend the opening but are still interested in purchasing art, there will be a proxy bidding available.
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 15. Art sales will be available online, by telephone at 806-376-5181 and by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The purchased artwork will remain on exhibit until the show closes in October.
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.
