Each Septem­ber, the an­nual Ren­dezvous Royal in Cody, Wy­oming, cel­e­brates the arts. This year, the fes­tiv­i­ties will hap­pen dur­ing the third week, Septem­ber 16 to 21, with one of the most an­tic­i­pated events be­ing the Buffalo Bill Art Show & Sale with a live auc­tion on Septem­ber 20. Dur­ing the show more than 100 artists will have paint­ings or sculp­ture on view.

Satur­day morn­ing, Septem­ber 21, will be the much-an­tic­i­pated quick draw, where around 40 of the 100 par­tic­i­pants paint for an hour-and-a-half on the Robbe Pow­wow grounds. Dur­ing the paint­ing, col­lec­tors and vis­i­tors can watch the artists at work and dis­cuss how they are cre­at­ing their piece as it is be­ing done.

Other must-at­tend events in­clude work­shops, artist demon­stra­tions and the Lunch & Lec­ture on Septem­ber 19 at the Buffalo Bill Cen­ter of the West. Ac­cord­ing to the event, this year’s lec­ture, “In col­lab­o­ra­tion with Wy­oming’s cel­e­bra­tion of the 150th an­niver­sary of women’s right to vote, a gath­er­ing of sea­soned pa­trons of the arts will have a con­ver­sa­tion about their own in­volve­ment in the arts by dis­cussing their ca­reers and per­sonal life and how it shaped who they are to­day.” New this year, By Western Hands will host its In­vi­ta­tional De­sign Ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tur­ing one-of-a-kind pieces of Western func­tional art.

The grand open­ing and rib­bon cut­ting for the ex­hi­bi­tion of the works that will be sold in Septem­ber is Au­gust 22.
