Quest for the West® Art Show and Sale

Every September, the Eiteljorg Museum becomes the center of attention for art of the American West. The 14th annual Quest for the West® Art Show and Sale returns Sept. 6-7 with the opening weekend of one of the top sales of Western art in the nation. Aside from its prominence nationally, Quest for the West is one of the largest art sales in Indianapolis and the Midwest. The Art Show and Sale opens to the public Sept. 8 - Oct. 6

Pre-registered opening weekend attendees will be the first to see and bid on paintings and sculpture by prominent Western artists in a “luck-of-the-draw” sale. This year’s show features four artists who are making their first appearance at Quest or returning for the first time in a few years: Tony Abeyta, Deborah Copenhaver Fellows, Dave Santillanes and Mian Situ. At the 2018 show, painter Mark Kelso, in his first year at Quest, was the only artist from Indiana; and he won the Artists’ Choice Award that year.

All of the art remains on exhibit at the Eiteljorg until Oct. 6, giving the general public who visit the museum the opportunity to see the remarkable works. Pieces not sold during opening weekend remain available for purchase until the exhibit closes.

On Friday of opening weekend, registrants will enjoy afternoon tours of two local collectors’ homes, a Friday evening reception Sept. 6 and the opening of a special exhibition featuring 2018 Quest Artist of Distinction H. David Wright, as well as the return of a Miniature Art Sale. On Saturday evening Sept. 7 during the banquet and awards ceremony, many lucky attendees will win a limited edition 2019 Eiteljorg Keepsake. To register for opening weekend, contact Kay Hinds at 317.275.1341 or khinds@eiteljorg.com
