Out West

The Out West Art Show is the largest gathering of western artists on the planet. With over 110 exhibit rooms and 10 major galleries located in the Best Western Plus Heritage Inn during Western Art Week, there is truly something for everyone.

The exhibit rooms showcase the work of over 200 artists, unique western shops and galleries, and the finest artists in the country. Over 60% of the artists exhibiting at the Out West Art Show and Sale have works in the prestigious CM Russell Benefit Auction. All Out West Art Show events are free. The Out West Art Show has new and exciting events, live music, and opportunities to rub elbows with modern masters. Buyers and collectors from across the US, Canada, and abroad will be in Great Falls.

Located in the adopted hometown of western art luminary Charles Russell, the show carries on the legacy of 45 plus years. This art show originated with the acclaimed Russell Auction. Many of our artists have exhibited at our art show for over 20 years, some for as many as 39 years. The Out West Art Show is produced by the Out West Art Foundation, and we always look forward to having everyone back home with us!
