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.
