America’s Horse in Art returns to the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame & Museum in Amarillo and celebrates the event’s 10-year anniversary.

Mark your calendar now for the show’s opening on August 12 or plan a trip to view this year’s exhibit before it closes October 14.

Over the past 10 years, top Western artists have been invited to participate in the show to present new paintings, drawings and sculptures in the Scharbauer Gallery. This year, they continue the tradition and celebrate 10 years of exhibition.

The signature piece for the 2017 show is a piece by artist Joni Monroe Beinborn of La Crosse, Wisconsin. The piece is titled “Any Time … Any Place.” Beinborn, along with many of the contributing artists, will be at the opening, which is 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on August 12 at the Museum. 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 14. 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 October.

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