Offering art lovers in-person and online methods of participation, this unique art sale features contemporary and traditional works by acclaimed artists at affordable prices.
The 15th annual Small Works, Great Wonders Art Sale is returning to The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum Friday, Nov.13, 2020 from 6-9 p.m. Featuring smaller-scale works of art by renowned artists — including many also featured in the Museum’s prestigious Prix de West — Small Works, Great Wonders gives both established and beginning art collectors the opportunity to acquire fine works at an affordable price.
The evening will include cocktails and light hors d’oeuvres, and winning bidders will be able to take works home with them the night of the sale. While attendance at the sale event will be limited to allow for ample social-distancing, the Museum is also offering two after hours preview events Tuesday, Nov. 10 and Thursday, Nov. 12 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. These come-and-go events will give guests additional opportunities to preview art, enjoy refreshments and submit proxy bids, as well as shop The Museum Store’s Holiday Open House. The Holiday Open House will also be open to the public Saturday, November 14 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., with lots of great deals on unique holiday gifts.
“Small Works, Great Wonders has become one of our most anticipated events,” said Natalie Shirley, Museum president and CEO. “I’m pleased we’re able to provide multiple opportunities this year to experience and bid on this fantastic art in a safe and enjoyable environment.”
Proxy bidding services are available for those unable to attend the previews or sales event.
