Art Shows are a great way to meet artists, view their artwork and enjoy an entertaining day. As an artist, it’s always a pleasure to receive an invitation to participate, as it is a chance to display art, meet new people and learn something.
I fall into an interesting group, as I’m relatively new to the whole art scene, and yet, some might think I belong in the “ancient artist” category. Nonetheless, art and history are my passion, so if you are in the area, I’d love meet you.

64th Annual Death Valley ’49ers Invitational Western Art Show
Thursday through Sunday, November 7-10, 2013.
This will be my 3rd year attending this show, and I have to admit, it’s one of my favorites. It was here I received my first artist recognition, earning a 3rd place and best new artist award my first year, and receiving a 1st place award my second year. Is it any wonder I’m excited to participate?
This juried art show is fun for everyone, including families, as it takes place during an encampment (or rendezvous), which offers loads of historical activities above and beyond the canvas.
The art show itself offers fun events including:
It’s always fun to vote for your favorite artwork (rewarding for the artists as well!)
1st, 2nd and 3rd place ribbons are awarded to each of the five categories as well as the Plein-air competition based on voting done by fellow Death Valley ‘49ers.
