This event takes place at the Heritage Hotel in Great Falls during the popular and traditional Out West Art Show and Sale each spring during western art week. We developed this concept to promote artists and to bring together the greatest collection of small works that un-rivals any miniature show in the country. We launched this show in 2017 with great success and again even more success in 2018. We gauge this success by how well all of the 150 participating artists did and how well we did in promoting each of those artists. Our model for this event was not just to sell as many as we could but rather promote the best artists in the country that we could. Using this plan, our goal was to bring new buyers into the Heritage who would not normally be there to see some of these great works. By doing that, these buyers also supported some mid-level and lower level artists. Our plan worked! With 150 pieces on display, we were able to sell 52% of them on our first year! This was practically unheard of in this industry. With so many returning buyers, we bettered our show by selling an incredible 65% of our show in 2018 this last March. We are very happy that so many top shelf artists have believed in us and have participated in the show and we so greatly appreciate them. The residual success of the show has trickled down to so many of the artists who are established at the Heritage or are just beginning their career and that was our intention all along.

We have been working with the folks at the Heritage to develop another show that will be premiered this coming March. We are calling this exciting new show the Montana Masters show. Using a similar “top down” concept, we are inviting some of the best artists in the world to participate in this exclusive event. Our plan is to put roughly 20 major pieces into a convention room at the Heritage on a “for sale” basis. We have secured an incredible list of notable artists who are excited to participate and hang amongst so many of the “greats”. Many of these artists are Skull Society artists and several artists are members of the elite Cowboy Artists of America organization. We have high expectations this show will become a lasting and exclusive event each year that many look forward to viewing. Bitterroot Frames and Publishing will be releasing news of this new show sometime in November and we will start our advertising campaign in January and we will start including all of those images here soon… Hope to see you there to view both of these incredible shows and to support all of the artists new and old…
