Western Art Auction
'Western art has been a component of the Calgary Stampede from the very beginning. The great western artist Edward Borein illustrated posters for the Stampede, and by the early 1930s, regular art exhibitions were part of the Stampede. Since the early 1980s, the Calgary Stampede has included a live auction of the best in contemporary and historical western art.
For the price of an auction ticket, western art collectors, buyers and artists alike are immersed in the experience of Western art. The evening includes a buffet, Quick Draw artists and the main event, a live auction of original works of art.
Each year the Western Art Auction recognizes works of distinction and awards the following: Artist’s Choice Awards, Collectors’ Choice Awards and Jurors Choice Awards and Jurors Choice for Best New Artist.
The winners of the Jurors’ Choice for Best of Show (flatwork and 3-dimensional) will receive a custom silver belt buckle designed by Shawna Whiteside of Sweet Iron Silver and Becker Buckles as well as $1000 cash award. The Artists’ Choice, Collectors’ Choice and Jurors’ Choice for Best New Artist will receive a custom nickel and bronze belt buckle.
The Western Art Auction is grateful for the continued sponsorship of Pyramid Corporation, a long-standing friend of the Western Art Auction. Since 2003, Pyramid Corporation has sponsored the buckles for all the winners.
