Museum preparing Western artists exhibit

Cowboys and artists will share the spotlight at an upcoming exhibit at the Museum of Northwest Colorado in downtown Craig.

The display, slated to open in mid-May, will highlight works by Western artists from the early 20th century.

In addition to the Western paintings and artworks, the show will include cowboy gear and artifacts.

Many well-known Western artists actually worked as cowboys on ranches or even homesteaded. Very often, the experiences they gained working in the West added to the quality and authenticity of their works.

Museum director Dan Davidson would like to extend an invitation to anyone who might have a painting by an early 20th century artist to consider loaning that piece for the exhibit, which will run through March 2010.

For more information about this exhibit, or if you have a piece which you think might work for the display, call the museum at 824-6360 to speak with Davidson or Janet Gerber.
