Western Spirit started in 1982 as a sibling show to the Cheyenne Frontier Days™ Western Art Show and Sale. Over the last forty years, Western Spirit has grown to become the premier western juried art show in the Rocky Mountain region for new and emerging artists. Western Spirit differentiates itself from the Western Art Show as a western contemporary art show.
