An Evening with Western Art -- March 11

News: Windows to the West Art Show and Sale

“An Evening with Western Art” will be presented at the Estes Park Museum from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm on March 11th.  The program will engage participants with the subject matter, media, styles and techniques used by artists who portray the spirit of the American West.  Light refreshments will be served.  Space limited to first 60 guests, so please plan on arriving early.

The leadership of the Estes Park Western Heritage Foundation, Inc., and the Estes Park Museum Friends & Foundation, Inc., have joined together to present this exciting evening as a pre-event for the Windows to the West Art Show and Sale.  

The Museum’s director, Derek Fortini, and art educator Peter Gaustad will facilitate participant discussion to promote better understanding and appreciation of American Western art.

Local collectors Dr. Bert Cushing and Dr. Bob and Linda Moak will provide several pieces from their private collections for the program. Fine examples of oil, watercolor, graphite, and pastel art and bronze sculpture have been selected.  The Museum also will display pieces from its collection of local artwork by outstanding artists from the pioneer period of Estes Park.

“An Evening with Western Art” will be informative and entertaining, whether you are new to Western art or a seasoned collector.  Please come--the evening will be enriched by your questions and the experiences you share.

In addition to this March 11 program, plan to attend the second annual Windows to the West Art Show and Sale at the Estes Park Events Complex, June 3-5, 2016.  The two foundations are working together to again bring the show to Estes Park.
