Welcome to the premier of the Pure West Art & Artifact Auction.
If there could be a more quintessential way to end a weekend of western-styled celebration, we can’t imagine what it would be. Join us at the Deane House for an exceptional afternoon involving art, music, food and drink, and of course, western culture! Set on the banks of the Bow River, steps away from Fort Calgary and Indian Village, the Deane House will host the inaugural edition of this western art auction.
Guests will arrive to enjoy the stunning grounds of Deane House, with its extensive riverside patio and garden, amazing views and the most spectacular outdoor dining space in Calgary. The grounds encompass an entire city block of lawns and beautifully tended gardens.
Rain or shine, we’ll have you covered with tenting, market umbrellas and indoor spaces. You’ll be greeted with a welcome cocktail and served a selection of West-inspired canapés throughout the afternoon.
Auction viewing begins at 1:00 p.m. Afternoon schedule begins at 2:00 with a set by iconic musician and poet of the West, Ian Tyson. Following, talks by Traditional Cowboy Arts Association founder and silversmith, Scott Hardy, past president of the Calgary Stampede, and Bob Thompson will precede the auction which begins at 4:00 p.m.
Dress Code: Western Style
Cost: $45.00 plus GST
