The Russell Exhibition Opens
The Russell Exhibition displays the classic and contemporary Western artworks available for biding during The Russell: An Exhibition and Sale to Benefit the C.M. Russell Museum, March 20–23.
New walls have been built, and galleries have been re-imagined and transformed to hang artwork throughout five galleries in the Russell Museum. More than 200 pieces of fine-art by 156 nationally known artists will be on display. Subjects range from traditional Western images of cowboys and Indians, to landscapes, wildlife, and still-life images. Historic pieces date back to 1867. The contemporary pieces exemplify the highest quality Western art created today and represent a wide variety of media and subject matter.
The artwork in The Russell Exhibition will be sold March 20-23, 2014, during six separate sales and auctions that compose The Russell, the premier fundraising event for the C.M. Russell Museum. The Russell enables the museum to be more financially stable and better able to carry out its mission.
Friday, February 21, 2014 - 10:00am to Saturday, March 22, 2014 - 12:00pm
