It has been such an honor to photograph the Eiteljorg Museum of Western Art’s big event The Quest for the West for 5 years now. Every year I get to see phenomenal western art by so many wonderful artists that come into town for this big event. This year was no exception, with a gallery absolutely full of stunning paintings, drawings and sculptures. There were too many amazing pieces to chronicle in a simple blog post so if you get the chance, definitely head over to the museum while the show is up and see all of the great work in person.
I was honored to be invited back to photograph the events of last Friday and Saturday and am excited to share some photos of the highlights. Here are just a few of my favorite pieces, the award winners and some photos from around the event.
A huge congratulations goes out to all of the artists that won awards or sold works and to the museum for another fantastic event.
