The Masters of the American West Art Exhibition and Sale will take place on Saturday, February 24, 2024. Qualifying ticket buyers and sponsors will receive a ballot book with a unique Buyer # registered to their name. The ballot book contains one ballot for each piece of art.

For each artwork you wish to purchase, write your name on the corresponding ballot and insert the slip into the ballot box located next to the artwork. Check to make sure the ballot number matches the number on the ballot box; incorrect ballots will be disqualified.

Miniatures ballots are in a separate section of the ballot book. These ballots are blue and each item # begins with M.



6:30 p.m. Balloting closes in the Peggy and Lowry Mays Museum Lobby and names are drawn; first name drawn has 20 minutes to claim artwork.

6:50 p.m. Second name drawn has 10 minutes to claim artwork.
