The Eitlejorg Museum in Indianapolis will host the Quest for the West Art Show and Sale starting September 11 in the Circle City. Collectors and art enthusiasts from around the world are expected flock to Indy to attend the fourth annual invitational art exhibition and fixed-price sale featuring some of the nation’s top Western artists. The intimate event provides a unique opportunity for veteran and novice collectors to meet and interact with artists.
Last year, Curt Walters was named Quest for the West Artist of Distinction, an honor that includes an exhibition during the 2010 sale and show. Walters’ exhibition is titled Moments and Monuments: The Plein Aire and Studio Paintings of Curt Walters. Considered by many to be the greatest living Grand Canyon artist, Curt Walters paints the Canyon in all its rugged beauty, in every season and from a myriad of vantage points. He depicts in color and light the lyrical, reverent awe one feels when standing before that immense, yawning Canyon. This beautiful show will be open through December 13, 2009.
