Fresh perspectives on our dazzling Western landscapes and cultural icons.
The High Desert Museum’s annual Art of the West Show August 3 -17 offers the opportunity to view some of America’s best artists’ works, as well as a chance to make one your own. The juried art works are also included in a silent auction, with proceeds supporting the Museum’s unique and acclaimed educational programs.
The Museum invited award-winning artists to submit works inspired by the region’s landscape for consideration in the show. The 28 selected works are creative expressions from a number of regional artists including: Janice Druian of Terrebonne; Sheri Greves-Neilson of Dunnigan, Calif.; Travis Humphreys of Cedar City, Utah; Linda Loeschen of Basalt, Colo., and Sherry Salari Sander of Kalispell, Mont.
Museum President Janeanne A. Upp said, “Bringing these works of art to Central Oregon allows visitors to enjoy fresh perspectives on our dazzling Western landscapes and cultural icons, from rugged terrain and pristine rivers to tough cowboys.”
