Western Art Collector - - WESTERN ART NEWS -

The 46th edi­tion of the Western Art As­so­ci­a­tion’s Na­tional Fine Art Show & Auc­tion will take place May 18 at the Kit­ti­tas Val­ley Event Cen­ter in El­lens­burg, Washington. More than 45 Western artists will be par­tic­i­pat­ing, in­clud­ing San­dra Haynes, this year’s poster artist, who cre­ated Living Wild, fea­tur­ing five horses.

“Living Wild de­picts some of San­dra’s neigh­bors, the wild horses of Cen­tral Ore­gon. We are de­lighted that she agreed to paint our poster art and be the fea­tured artist for 2018,” says Joann Wise with the Western

Art As­so­ci­a­tion. “San­dra has been a part of the ‘El­lens­burg Show’ for a num­ber of years of­fer­ing a wide va­ri­ety of me­dia and sub­ject mat­ter. A paint­ing dra­ma­tiz­ing these mag­nif­i­cent an­i­mals stays true to that part of our mis­sion ‘to pre­serve our Western her­itage and its way of life as ex­pressed through art.’”

Other artists in­clude Lynn Cain, Carolyn Ship­man, Robert Tan­decki, Dave Gres­sard, Hu­lan Flem­ing, Peter X. O’brien, Edna Bjorge, Naomi Gray, David W. Mayer,

Jerry Sn­od­grass, Lee Tisch Bial­czak, Robert Wal­ton, Rick Ur­dahl, Ron Moore and many oth­ers.

The three-day event, which runs from May 18 to 20, fea­tures an exhibition with artist booths, a quick draw and auc­tion, an award cer­e­mony, live mu­sic and two fine art auc­tions at 4 p.m. on May 19 and 1 p.m. on May 20.
