About the Show
The Buffalo Bill Art Show & Sale is a fine art sale with a Western theme, offering works relating to the land, people and wildlife of the American West. Artists offer a broad range of stylistic interpretations of the West, in oil painting, watercolor, pastel, sculpture, ceramic and mixed media. All works are original art.
The Buffalo Bill Art Show & Sale benefits the prestigious Buffalo Bill Center of the West and is held in conjunction with the Center's Patrons Ball and Cody High Style, all part of Cody, Wyoming's annual "Rendezvous Royale Immerse Yourself in the Arts"
The ever increasing success of this project is made possible by dedicated staff at the Cody Country Chamber of Commerce and the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, as well as a hard working volunteer committee.
The art exhibition, housed in the Buffalo Bill Historical
Center’s John Bunker Sands Photography Gallery, is free for public viewing
each September.Main events include the Friday evening Auction,
where guests view the exhibition
a final time, then stroll to the beautiful party tent adjacent to
the museum for food, drinks, live music and a spirited auction;
Saturday morning Quick Draw, where guests
enjoy breakfast then observe nearly thirty painters and sculptors at work in the Robbie Powwow
Garden, often using live models, to complete a piece in one hour.
Summer Art Classes
Also offered are artist demonstrations at local galleries and museums, an artist studio tour and a lecture and poster signing by the annual honored artist. In addition, the Buffalo Bill Art Show helps make possible summer art classes for children and teenagers and scholarships for young adults.
