Cowgirl Up! Art from the Other Half of the West Exhibition and Sale

March 29 - May 12, 2019

50+ of the West’s best women artists, all in one place, at one time! With more than 200 paintings, drawings and sculptures created by women artists, the 14th annual Cowgirl Up! exhibition and sale embraces the full spectrum of Western American art today.

Cowgirl Up! turns the spotlight squarely on women’s voices and perspectives, serving up a new, deeper understanding of the American West. More than an exhibition, CU! is a crossroads where artists, collectors, and enthusiasts come together to explore what it means to be a Western artist. During opening weekend in late March, Frontier Street transforms into a tented venue for catered dinners, dancing, live auctions and artists’ quick draw.

Your purchase of original artworks supports the endeavours of women artists working today and of the Desert Caballeros Western Museum. Art can be purchased throughout the run of the exhibition at the Museum or online at
