Testimonials


DanaGallery“The Dana Gallery in Missoula, Montana is entering its 20th year in business. We have worked with the show directors in various capacities over the years and have decided to become a part of the Heart of the West for various reasons, but particularly because we have found them to be unfailingly true to the integrity of the show. I think that this show is of special quality because of the artists they have chosen to include. It is truly a ‘who’s who’ of Contemporary and Traditional Western Art.”

“I am very excited about [Western Masters’] Heart of the West Show and Auction. I have the greatest respect for the Cawdreys’ art-business acumen which is partnered with a sense of humility and ethics. I have no doubts they will succeed and am honored to have been asked to participate. I see the Western Masters growing to be a leading art promoter in the country, deftly handled with Morgan Cawdrey at the helm.”
