Desert Caballeros Western Museum is proud to host the 13th annual ‘Cowgirl Up! Art from the Other Half of the West’ Invitational Exhibition & Sale. Three days of kick-off weekend festivities begin Friday, March 23rd and continue through Sunday, March 25th. The exhibition and sale officially opens to the public on Sunday, March 25th.

Cowgirl Up! captures the imagination of just about everyone who is attracted to the lifestyle and spirit of the West.  Over the course of the past decade, the show and sale have become the most important event for Western women artists in the country. Regarded for the breadth of extraordinarily talented artists invited annually as well as the enthusiastic and loyal patrons who support the museum’s passionate vision, DCWM is privileged to carry the banner for the West’s most noteworthy women artists.  ‘Cowgirl Up! Art from the Other Half of the West’ garners international acclaim from collectors and connoisseurs across the globe.  Since 2006, when Desert Caballeros Western Museum identified the need to step forward on behalf of the West’s women artists, this nationally hailed exhibition has gathered more than 50 of the region’s celebrated contemporaries, in recognition of their enormous contribution to the cultural legacy of the American West.
