Briscoe’s Night of Artists
December 1, 2020 – December 21, 2020
Mon – Thurs, 5pm to 8:30pm
Fri – Sun, 2pm to 6pm
The museum is making nearly 300 new works of painting, sculpture and mixed media by 80 of the country’s leading contemporary Western artists available online for everyone to enjoy, making it more accessible and far reaching than ever before. Those looking to expand, or start, their Western art collections can shop the sale online, viewing the full catalog and online gallery, then using the Briscoe’s absentee service. The service is open now through March 26 and successful buyers will be notified on March 27. Any remaining unsold artwork will be available for purchase through the close of the exhibition. The museum will be unveiling virtual tours through its website and social media channels, @BriscoeMuseum, so everyone can tour the Night of Artists exhibition.
“Night of Artists is a premier showcase of emerging and well-renowned contemporary Western artists,” said Michael Duchemin, President and CEO of the Briscoe Western Art Museum. “Taking the exhibition and sale online shows that the opportunity to celebrate the beauty and impact of the rich stories shared through Western art isn’t limited to gathering in person. The caliber of these works shines in any environment. We look forward to welcoming everyone to the Briscoe again as soon as conditions make it possible. Until then, art enthusiasts can join us online and participate in this remarkable exhibition and sale.”
The wide range of artworks and artist genres included in Night of Artists reflects the vastness of the great American West. From scenic landscapes, inspired Native Americans and classic cowboys to stunning wildlife and detailed portraiture, Night of Artists includes something for every art enthusiast to enjoy. Featured artists include Teresa Elliott, Martin Grelle, George Hallmark, Z.S. Liang, Mark Maggiori, Jan Mapes, Stefan Savides, Billy Schenck, Michael Ome Untiedt and Kim Wiggins.
