Grayce B. Kerr Gallery
The 10,000 square foot Grayce B. Kerr Changing Exhibition Gallery is the focus of the museum’s
changing exhibition program. Each year we have three major new exhibits. There is always a spring
show from January through May, a summer show from June through September, and a fall show from
October through December. They range in subject matter from art to ranch related to Native
American to almost anything you can imagine of a western nature.
The summer exhibition program is always reserved for the prestigious Prix de West Invitational
Exhibition. It opens the second weekend in June with a series of lectures, art demonstrations,
and a sale. The art remains on exhibit through the Sunday following Labor Day. This exhibition
consists of 200 to 300 paintings and sculpture done by the very best contemporary western artists.
The spring and fall exhibition programs present a wide range of subject matter that is designed
to create a balance between art and objects as subjects. Scheduled to appear over the next three
or four years are western art retrospectives featuring some of the best modern painters and
sculptors. Past exhibitions have included Native American baskets, firearms, and a major
presentation on horse cultures of the world, among others. These and other fascinating
presentations, complete with a full assortment of educational activities, lie in the future
of this active gallery.
