'Cowgirl Up!' Art from the Other Half of the West

Desert Caballeros Western Museum is proud to host the 16th annual ‘Cowgirl Up! Art from the Other Half of the West’ Invitational Exhibition and Sale.  For 16 years, Cowgirl Up! has attracted emerging and established women artists from all over the West who depict the Western lifestyle in painting, drawing, and sculpture. Each year, more than 300 applicants are reviewed; this year, over 60 were selected as representative of the West’s top female fine art voices today for the largest exhibition yet.

Cowgirl Up! is much more than a show. It’s a crossroads where artists, collectors, and art enthusiasts come together to explore what it means to be a Western artist. CU! artists ride a range of techniques, styles, and mediums, from traditional to contemporary. All of the art is available for purchase, meaning that each sale supports the endeavors of women artists working today and of the Desert Caballeros Western Museum. CU! art can be bought throughout the run of the exhibition at the Museum or online at westernmuseum.org

The exhibition opens to the public on March 28, 2021, with hours 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. on opening day, and paintings and sculptures will remain on exhibition throughout the run of the show, which closes on September 5, 2021.  Museum hours are 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily. However, these hours are subject to change due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please contact the Museum for current hours of operation. For interviews or high-resolution images of art from the show, please contact the Marketing Manager at marketing@westernmuseum.org.

For a full list of featured artists in this year's exhibition, visit the Museum's website.
