36th Annual Calgary Stampede Western Art Auction
Art has been a featured component of the Calgary Stampede from the very beginning. The great western artist Edward Borein illustrated posters for the Stampede, and by the early 1930s, regular art exhibitions were part of the Stampede. Since the early 1980s, the Calgary Stampede has included a live auction of the best contemporary, modern and western art.
Please join us for a wonderful evening which includes food, drinks, a live auction of original works of art including six to ten accomplished and well-known artists who will be painting new pieces during the reception. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of these pieces will fund the Calgary Stampede Grade 12 Art Scholarship.
