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…

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…

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…
