To mark the 20th anniversary of the event that sparked the museum’s creation, the Briscoe Western Art Museum is expanding its signature exhibition and sale with a first:  a hybrid event that includes online and in-person celebrations. One of the premier Western Art events in the world, Night of Artists includes the viewing and sale of nearly 300 new works of painting, sculpture and mixed media by over 75 of today’s leading contemporary Western artists.

The Briscoe Western Art Museum’s Night of Artists 2021 Exhibition and Sale includes in-person and livestreamed celebrations, giving ticketholders the first advantage to purchase art when the Night of Artists Online Auction kicks things off March 13. Then a virtual annual Collectors Summit leads up to the 20th Anniversary Celebration of the Night of Artists Exhibition, conclusion of the Online Auction and Grand Live Auction on March 27. Once the opening events conclude, Night of Artists continues as a public exhibition and sale March 28 – May 9 at the Briscoe. Click here to view the schedule of events.

Night of Artists was created 20 years ago to celebrate Western art and the Briscoe would not exist without the artistic seeds that Night of Artists planted. The effort and funds to establish the museum grew from Night of Artists, making it a vital piece of the museum’s history as well as its signature annual event. Night of Artists serves as the primary fundraiser for the museum, benefiting the Briscoe’s full array of exhibitions, engagement, and educational programs throughout the year.

This event has been planned with the safety of the patrons, artists, and staff in mind. In the event of further mandates, all in-person events are subject to change to the online “Home on the Range” experience.

All in-person guests will be required to have their temperatures checked at the door and are required to wear facial coverings at all times when not seated at their table. We ask each guest to be mindful of social distancing throughout the evening and to frequently use the hand sanitizer stations. If you are feeling unwell, please protect your fellow art enthusiasts and join us online through our “Home on the Range” ticket option.

The Briscoe Western Art Museum is continuously looking for ways to improve and ensure your purchasing experience at the Night of Artists Sale meets and exceeds your expectations. Our Collectors Concierge is available to provide collectors and art buyers personalized service throughout the experience. From absentee bidding, art purchase, payment, shipping, and delivery of your work of art, we look forward to making your experience at Night of Artists a pleasure.
