The cream of the crop of western artists are riding into Calgary July 4–13, 2008, displaying a wealth of flat art and sculpture that attracts collectors and admirers from all over the world.

Canadian Cowboy Country magazine is one of the major sponsors, presenting a custom silver buckle to the winner chosen by their peers in the Sales Salon, representing the categories of Best of Show-Flat Art, Best of Show-3-D Art and Best of Show-New Artist.

This fabulous showcase, held in Hall D of the Roundup Centre at the Calgary Stampede, is the premiere western art event and the largest western art show in Canada. All of our buckle winners will be there – plus some exciting new artists! We invite you to attend this must-see western event and to get your tickets for the always record-setting art auction July 12!
