March 28 – May 9, 2021
Public Exhibition & Sale

One of the premier Western Art events in the world, Night of Artists includes the viewing and sale of nearly 250 new works of painting, sculpture and mixed media by over 75 of today’s leading contemporary Western artists.

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.

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. For more information, call 210.299.4499 or email at

Thank you for supporting the artists and the Briscoe Western Art Museum through your purchase of art.  Now more than ever, your support will directly impact the artists, their families, and the museum mission to share the west through our exhibits and programming throughout the year.
