I’ve just returned from a weekend of art immersion at the CM Russell show and sale in Great Falls, MT. This show brings together all of the finest artists from the western end of the U.S. There is something for everyone here and it brings artists and buyers together for a star studded four days.
Though I didn’t have work in any of the auctions, I did have a representative sample of my work in the R. Tompkins display room. However, I was primarily there to observe and reconnect with artist friends. Because artists tend to be a reclusive group, this is a chance to get out, visit and let your hair down a bit.
In addition to all of the living artists at this event, there is also the opportunity to see some pretty great legendary art by Charlie Russell, Borein, Seltzer, Sharp and others. And of course, the opportunity to purchase at any of the nine auctions that are held around town.
But what this really is, is a celebration of arts and artists. We are pretty important cogs in the gears of society. We are the recorders, the inventors, the beauty and civility in civilization. Next time you have the chance to attend this event or any other like it, come out and celebrate the arts and artists.
Creativity has been my life and I would like to share some of my thoughts, learning and fun facts with you.
