May 18th, 19th and 20th
Ellensburg National Western Art Show
Ellensburg Kittitas County Fairgrounds
Open to the public, plenty of free parking and a great show.
May 26th - 27th
Historic Ritzville Days Western Art Show
A show located in the heart of old town Ritzville, right there along I 90 (yes, there is an Old Town, not just a Perkins, gas stations, and the new motels.) So many of your favorite northwest Western artists, and the Cowboy Cartoonists are well represented, live western music and poetry, and a quick draw right down the middle of the street. Okay, last year there was an artist quick draw and a shootout, too. This is a relatively new show, and trust me, one you won't want to miss having on your calender. We have a ball, you will, too.
The gallery will be open nearly all the time, but I would advise calling just to make sure I am out of the barn and garden. 208 265 9613
July 27, 28, 29th
I'll be doing a show at the Sandpoint Ponderay Garden Center
The Event at Rebecca Farms
An equine event that is new to me this year. I'll be there with as much work as I can get on the truck.
North Idaho International Draft horse and Mule Show
Bonner County Fairgrounds, Sandpoint, Idaho
The barns and vendor displays are open to the public, the show classes have a grandstand ticket. But just standing around watching the teams go by is a full show in itself. Each year more fine western artists set up in the Exhibition Hall, Bonnie Shields has a free collector's print as long as they last. There is a parking fee, small, and the money I think goes to our Search and Rescue.
Celebration of Western Art
At the Puyallup Fairgrounds. Free to the public, and lots of close free parking. Art auction in the evenings and quickdraws, too. Special guest this year, go on-line and check it all out. You know this is a good show. I hope to see you there!
