About Quest

TOP WESTERN ARTISTS SHARE THE STORIES OF THE AMERICAN WEST

Presented by The Western Art Society

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.

Co-chairs Cathy Turner and Patty Gibbs are proud to have organized the 2020 Quest for the West® and hope that you will join them for the opening weekend for special events celebrating the work of many talented Western artists.

15 Year Annual Celebration!

Quest for the West® has been bringing the best of Western art to the Indianapolis Eiteljorg for fifteen years.

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.
