MO Show

I am honored that, Day at the Office, was accepted into the prestigious Mountain Oyster Western Show this year. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to hang my work with some of the best western artists in the country.

The Mountain Oyster Club, established in 1948, is a private club composed of members united in the interest of preserving Southwestern heritage and “Old Pueblo” tradition. Their foundations in this way of life vary. Whether they come from pioneer stock with deep roots in Arizona, are ranchers, farmers, or horsemen, are professionals working with livestock interests or are Western artists or collectors of Western art, this society of Westerners remains dedicated to western traditions, art and the western way of life.
Each year the Club sponsors the Annual Southwestern Art Show and Sale, considered to be one of the most outstanding showcases of western art by many of the country’s finest artists. The club boasts its own extensive collection of western art.

In the Mountain Oyster Club
The Mountain Oyster Club Western Art Show and Sale is by invitation only.
The Mountain Oyster Club Contemporary Western Art Show and Sale began in 1970 with the works of 18 artists in an effort to help the little-appreciated Western artists sell their work. The show has grown to display more than four hundred works of over two hundred artists each year with the works of lesser known artists hanging along side well established ones. Art sales are conducted on a lottery system. Interested buyers complete an intent to purchase form and sign their name to the card presented with the piece. At 5:30p.m. on Sunday, November 20, 2011, a drawing will be conducted to determine the buyer of any contested pieces and the order of multiple bronze editions. Any unsold pieces will remain available until January on a first come basis. Purchased pieces may be picked up or shipped to the buyer (at the buyers cost) beginning in January.
