Yeehaw

Calling all artists with a flair for the wild west and a passion for exploring the vibrant culture and spirit of the American West! We are excited to announce our upcoming exhibition, “Yeehaw,” which will celebrate the riches of Western heritage and its enduring influence on art and culture. From the nostalgia of the Old West to the dynamism of modern Western life, we welcome submissions that reflect the myriad facets of Western culture.

Whether you’re a landscape painter inspired by the vast expanses of the prairie, a contemporary artist exploring the mythology of the American West, or your artwork captures the essence of urban life in Western cities, or anything in between, we want to hear from you! “Yeehaw” aims to showcase a diverse array of artistic interpretations that capture the essence of the West in all its glory.

If you’re ready to dust off your cowboy hat and saddle up on a ride through the heart of the West, submit your work for consideration. All mediums and styles are welcome, so join us on a creative journey through the untamed landscapes and spirited traditions of the American West in “Yeehaw”!
