The Morgan Community College Center for Arts and Community Enrichment (CACE) coordinates and manages the four-day Western Art Show in cooperation with the Brush Rodeo Association July 4 celebration. The Western Art Show opens on July 1 with a V.I.P. social at which participating artists are guests.  During the V.I.P. social, attendees have the privilege of voting for the piece of western artwork that will be the centerpiece for the following year’s event poster and other promotional materials.

2D art work must be wired and suitable to hang from peg board hooks. Tables and/or some shelving are available for 3D pieces.

The entire event is held at the Mark Arndt Event Center at the Morgan County Fairgrounds in Brush, Colorado.

Art sales are encouraged with 10% of the sales retained by CACE and 90% reimbursed to the artist. All artwork is to be removed at the end of the show on July 4th or from 9:00 A.M. to noon on July 5.
