Weekend event offers Western shopping

DENVER – Brian Lebel’s Old West Show & Auction fills the Denver Merchandise Mart’s Expo building this June 25-27 for the 21st annual celebration of the arts and antiques of the American West. This year’s Saturday night auction will include select items from the Roy Rogers & Dale Evans Museum Collection. The show features Western dealers, artists and craftsmen selling their best antique and contemporary merchandise.

This is the show’s second year at the Denver Merchandise Mart, a venue that has allowed the event to grow in size and scope since relocating from Cody, Wyo. The Old West Show now boasts 200 dealers specializing in an impressive and eclectic collection of antiques, art, apparel, jewelry, furnishings, collectibles, firearms, custom gear, cowboy trappings, books, boots and more. A gallery walk/cocktail party kicks off the weekend festivities and other special events are in the works.

Fine art offerings from this year’s auction include past and present Cowboy Artists members such as John Moyers, Bill Nebeker, Mehl Lawson, Nicholas Firfires, Joe Beeler, and Nick Eggenhofer. Additional artists of note include Charlie Russell and Maynard Dixon. Also included will be items from the Richard Flood collection. Native American artifacts include 19th century Northern Plains beadwork, Navajo silver bridles, clothing and textiles.
