THE GREAT WESTERN ART RENDEZVOUS

Art show map.jpg

A New Event To Continue Celebrating Western Art.

Working in tandem with the C.M. Russell Art Auction, we are creating an event to celebrate Western Art, while bringing new experiences to the classic show you are used to.
 

“The Russell” is in the Pacic Recycling sponsored Four Seasons Arena, while The Great Western Shows are only a short walk down the causeway, throughout the beautiful Art Deco buildings of the ExpoPark Fairgrounds. Wander through our many outstanding exhibits and find experiences, friendly faces and fabulous art around every corner.
 

This Art Rendezvous promises to be a new and exciting vision of all things Western Art.

Admission is free and open to the public

 

When: August 18 - 21, 2022

Where: Great Falls, MT

 

Come join us.
