TOP WESTERN ARTISTS SHARE THE STORIES OF THE AMERICAN WEST

Presented by The Western Art Society

What is it: Masterpieces on display at Quest for the West® capture moments in time that range from the early days of settlers in the rugged West to contemporary expressions of our lives today. Now in its 15th year, Quest is considered to be one of the top Western art shows in the country. Opening weekend attendees will be the first to see and bid on paintings and sculptures by some of the most prominent artists in a “luck of the draw” sale and a miniature art sale.

Wes Studi, award-winning actor

This year, we are excited to welcome Cherokee American actor Wes Studi (Last of the Mohicans, Geronimo, Dances with Wolves, Hostiles, Avator and more)! Studi is the first Native American actor to receive an Oscar.

We’re expecting our 15th annual Quest to be the best one yet. So make plans today to come to Quest and we promise you will make memories that you’ll fondly recall for years to come.

Who is it for: Whether you are an avid Western art collector or just beginning your art-collecting journey, Quest for the West® is one of the most intriguing shows you can attend.

Come experience the 15th annual
Quest for the West® Art Show & Sale
