Now in its 37th year, the Buf­falo Bill Art Show & Sale is a cor­ner­stone of the Ren­dezvous Royale: Cel­e­bra­tion of the Arts tak­ing place in Cody, Wy­oming, from Septem­ber 17 through 22. The show and live auc­tion fea­tures works by more than 100 con­tem­po­rary Western artists, in­clud­ing Rox Cor­bett, Ann Hanson, Ron Kingswood, Walter Ma­tia, John Pot­ter, Kevin Red Star, Michael Ome Un­tiedt and Michele Usi­belli.

Hanson’s painting Ea­gle’s Gift is of fel­low artist John Pot­ter, hold­ing a staff given to him by his un­cle. “John was told by his un­cle that the carv­ing on the staff sym­bol­izes the Ea­gle’s spi­ral as­cent higher into the sky— tak­ing the prayers of the peo­ple to the Cre­ator.

I also added an el­e­ment of John’s work into the painting to de­pict his awe­some tal­ent,” Hanson de­scribes.

Of the event, Pot­ter says, “I al­ways look for­ward to the Buf­falo Bill Show as an op­por­tu­nity to re­unite with artist and col­lec­tor friends and fam­ily that I may not have seen since last year—or the last show! The show’s direc­tor, as well as the town of Cody, its cham­ber and the Buf­falo Bill Cen­ter of the West al­ways put on such an amaz­ing, well-run and well-at­tended event.” Pot­ter will show­case works fea­tur­ing eagles.

The event will open on Septem­ber 17 with Painting on the Porch, a dy­namic event where plein air artist will teach painting dur­ing the day and fish with guests on the Shoshone River in the evening. On Septem­ber 20, the Buf­falo Bill Cen­ter for the West will host Tim New­ton, cu­ra­tor of the Amer­i­can Mas­ters and chair­man of the board of New York’s Sal­ma­gundi Club for a lunch and lec­ture ses­sion on the in­flu­ence of the West on art.

The live auc­tion takes place Septem­ber 21 at 6 p.m., and a crowd-pleas­ing quick draw and cham­pagne brunch event takes place the next day at 9 a.m. The week is topped off with a black tie gala for Buf­falo Bill Cen­ter of the West pa­trons on Septem­ber 22 at 6 p.m.
