National Ranching Heritage Center Hosts Western Art and Gear Show June 17th

Tickets on sale for art show, dinner and Western swing dance

LUBBOCK, TX (NEWS RELEASE) - Western art and gear collectors will have an opportunity to purchase new art pieces and meet the artists at the 4th Annual Summer Stampede Western Art and Gear Show from 6 to 11 p.m. at the National Ranching Heritage Center (NRHC) in Lubbock.

Sponsored by Capital Farm Credit, the annual event will feature more than 80 original pieces by 28 artists and craftsmen. The show and sale will begin at 6 p.m. in the NRHC main gallery followed by a 7 p.m. dinner on the patio and an 8 p.m. dance to the Western swing music of Jake Hooker and the Outsiders.

“A portion of the proceeds will benefit the educational and restoration programs of the center,” said Executive Director Jim Bret Campbell, emphasizing that the art and gear show “is unique for this part of the country.”

“We take a lower commission than most galleries and don’t require a bidding process,” he said. “Buyers can meet the artist, pay the posted price and take the artwork home that day.”

Summer Stampede provides a unique mix of art that combines both Western paintings and gear, including spurs, stirrups, bits, belt buckles and jewelry. Even though Summer Stampede is relatively new among Western art shows, Campbell said sales have been equivalent to other long-established shows.

Campbell said a limited number of tickets are available for the show and must be purchased in advance either online at or by calling (806) 834-0469. The cost is $85 for the general public and $75 for RHA members.

Artist participation is by invitation only. Those scheduled to exhibit are Peter Robbins, David Griffin, Tyler Crow, Baru Forell, Edgar Sotelo, Bob Moline, Teal Blake, Buckeye Blake, Mary Baxter, Billy Klapper, Brian Asher, Wayne Baize, TK Riddle, Jan Mapes, Russell Yates, Mary Ross Buchholz, Mejo Okon, Jason Scull, Garland Weeks, Stewart Williamson, Herman Walker, Jayson Jones, JaNeil Anderson, Kim Machey, Doug Clark, Mike Capron, Michael Tittor and Toni Arnett.
