now is the time

Recently, I was asked to participate in a panel discussion at the Autry Museum during Masters of the American West’s opening weekend. The topic was the state of the Western art market. My response to this was simple: it’s now. Now is the time. And if you don’t think now is the time, just act like now is the time and it will become the time. It is right now. At this moment. When thinking about this, think back to when and where you purchased your first piece of Western art. I would venture to say that more than 90 percent of you made this purchase from a gallery. Galleries have always been the most accessible place for people to start acquiring works for their collections. Maybe it was a trip…

frontiers of america

The Brigham Young University Museum of Art in Provo, Utah, will be opening Becoming America beginning May 31. The semi-permanent exhibition will feature paintings, photographs, prints, etchings and sculptures from the BYU Museum of Art’s permanent collection. “Becoming America grew out of my engagement with the MOA’s beautiful and varied collection of American art. I want the works in our collection to tell their own stories, instead of me imposing my personal view of what American art is and what it means,” says Kenneth Hartvigsen, curator of American art at the museum. The exhibition will feature works by Maynard Dixon, Minerva Teichert, Norman Rockwell, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol and others. The exhibition, which will also show works which have not been previously displayed, will be organized in thematic groups as though in…

postcards from the past

Now on view at the La Quinta Museum in La Quinta, California, is Postcards From Mecca: The California Desert Photographs of Susie Keef Smith and Lula Mae Graves. The exhibition, the first to showcase work by Susie Keef Smith, will feature photographs that were originally intended as postcards for a post office spinner rack. In the 1930s, Smith was the postmaster in Mecca, California, on the north shore of the Salton Sea. She frequently ventured out around the area with her cousin, Lula Mae Graves, as they documented the last of the desert prospectors, burro teams, stagecoach roads and the construction of the Colorado River Aqueduct and the All-American Canal. Smith’s body of work was nearly lost to history after a public administrator in charge of her estate dumped her photo albums…

the magic returns

A pair of cowboy boots that takes a young child on a magical journey to the Amazon River, the Taj Mahal, ancient Egypt, the moon, Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show and the Chisholm Trail is the subject of the book The Magic Boots, written by Scott Emerson and Howard Post. The book, first released in 1994, is illustrated by Post, the prominent Arizona painter whose contemporary Western works have been collected around the country. A new version of the book with an updated cover has recently been rereleased to a new generation of young readers. “I had never done a children’s book back then. A friend of mine was a publisher of fine art prints back at that time, and we had decided to do a book, mostly for our kids…

texas art

The biannual Texas Art Auction returns to Dallas Ton April 6 with 249 lots of early to contemporary Texas art. The auction, presented by David Dike Fine Art, will include 60 paintings from the collection of John Stone, who has curated a phenomenal collection of Texas art for the last 40 years. Stone was raised in the West Texas town of Haskell, where he was exposed at an early age to farming and livestock. He moved to Dallas in the 1970s after receiving his BA from Texas Tech and a master’s from Michigan State University, and later founded John Stone Services, a highly successful commercial landscape company. His artwork is notable for its hand-carved, gold-leafed frames, most created by Jack and Vera Barnett, artists whose own works appear in the Stone…
