Western Art & Culture

If you’ve seen one Western artwork, you’ve seen ‘em all, right?

 

Wrong, buckaroo.

 

Western art is as diverse and ever-changing as the West itself. It’s not just paintings of cowboys (though don’t get us wrong, there are plenty of great ones). It’s sculpture. It’s woodwork. It’s metal and fabric. Western art can be something you hang on the wall, place on your mantel, wear on your body, or furnish your home with. It’s earth tones and bright neon colors. It’s realism, impressionism, romanticism, and contemporary. Look around Montana and you’ll see—the scope of Western art is immense!

 

In this issue of Treasure State Lifestyles, we’ll help you navigate Western art in Montana. There’s no better place to start than Western Art Week in Great Falls, March 20-24. For decades, Western Art Week has served as a cultural epicenter for Western artists and their buyers. Aficionados from across the country stop here for a chance to view and purchase some of the best Western art the world has to offer.
Look inside for schedules of all the shows during Western Art Week and stories of each one’s significance. We dive into the histories of several shows and talk with the artists who sell their work here.

 

Can’t make it to Western Art Week? There are plenty of galleries, artists, and artisans that you can visit no matter what part of the state you’re in. And there are plenty of businesses that ooze with Western art and culture as well.

 

The West isn’t just a place; it’s our heritage as Montanans. Use this issue of Treasure State Lifestyles as your guide, and take some time to rediscover who we are.

        The world these days is a fast-paced place. As such, businesses are hard-pressed to find consumers willing to slow down long enough to hear what they have to say.
