Fort Worth art lovers take trip to the Old West

June 6, 2016 by  

Old West Events is bringing their yearly Old West Show and Auction to Fort Worth once again. The show is considered one of the premiere events for collectors

and appreciators of Western Americana around the world.

The two-day show and auction attracts artists and craftsmen from all over the western and midwestern United States including Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Wyoming, and Montana. Many of these artisans will sell their wares at the show, allowing visitors to peruse their goods and inquire about the creation and history behind their craft.

For special items, or items with a history behind them, there is also the auction. This is the place where historical antiques, famous paintings, and highly valuable gold and silver-work are sold. At the top of the list this year is an original Gaither painting. Collectors looking to bid at the auction can bid in person, by phone, or even online, but they must put in an order for a catalog printing of the items being auctioned off.

The Old West Show and Auction will be held June 10, 11, and 12 starting at 9:00 a.m. at the Will Rogers Memorial Center located at 3401 W. Lancaster Ave. The auction itself will take place on June 11 from 5 p.m. until all items are auctioned. Admission to the show is $10 a day and weekend passes are available online. Anyone interested in bidding or attending should visit the website for more information.
