DENVER, CO., September 14, 2020 – The National Western Stock Show CEO, Paul Andrews, announced the postponement of the 2021 National Western Stock Show until 2022. However, the 2021 Coors Western Art Exhibit & Sale will proceed, albeit virtually, with online auction events.
As one of the flagship events of the National Western Stock Show and one of the largest fundraisers for the National Western Scholarship Trust, the Coors Western Art Exhibit & Sale is proud to continue the show’s dedication to contemporary Western art even during these uncertain times.
Events and Details:
· January 5, 2021, virtual opening and online sale
· Show and sale runs through January 24, 2021
· Featuring 71 contemporary Western artists
Veering from the path, there will not be a featured artist for 2021. Instead, we will be spotlighting our past featured artists, including William Matthews (1994), Karmel Timmons (2008), Quang Ho (2014), and Sophy Brown (2020). For a full list, please go to www.CoorsWesternArt.com

As in the past, a separate show, the Young Guns of the National Western Stock Show, will also host an online event and sale on December 10, 2020. This event and sale is geared toward young professionals interested in art, philanthropy, and networking. Details will be posted on our website as soon as they are finalized, www.CoorsWesternArt.com on the Young Guns tab.
In these unprecedented times, we are embracing technology to expand our reach. Though we will dearly miss the excitement of the National Western Stock Show, we hope that the reality of online events and new ways to experience art will allow us to reach larger audiences for these truly incredible “western-minded” artists whose work helps bring connection to and a greater understanding of the contemporary landscape and people, as well as the issues and challenges we face in the West.
