Since 1979, The Annual Western Rendezvous of Art features 55 of the nation's premier artists, members of the Northwest Rendezvous Group of Artists (NWR) and invited guest artists. The Rendezvous opens Thursday at 10:00am at the Red Lion Colonial Inn. Events include a gallery art exhibit; Thursday evening barbecue at the Montana Historical Society; Friday art seminars and Friday evening artists' gala awards banquet. Saturday features two events: the popular Quick Draw and Auction, with complimentary brunch at the historic Sieben Ranch and the exciting Saturday night fixed price sale of the exhibited art. Rendezvous concludes Sunday morning with a breakfast, last chance art sale, art pick up and one final chance to visit informally with artists, new and old friends.
