Pure West Art & Artifact Auction
Welcome to the fifth Annual Pure West Art & Artifact Auction
If there could be a more quintessential way to celebrate Western culture than an art show set on the banks of the Bow River, steps away from Fort Calgary and the traditional territorial grounds of the Treaty 7 Nations, we can’t imagine what it would be.
Join us at the Deane House for an exceptional afternoon involving art, music, food and drink, and of course, western culture.
Guests will arrive to enjoy the stunning grounds of Deane House, with its extensive riverside patio and garden, amazing views and the most spectacular outdoor dining space in Calgary. The grounds encompass an entire city block of lawns and beautifully tended gardens.
Rain or shine, we’ll have you covered with tenting, market umbrellas and indoor spaces. You’ll be greeted with a welcome West-centric cocktail and served a selection of West-inspired canapés throughout the afternoon.
Auction viewing begins at 1:00 p.m., along with a traditional indigenous girls’ drumming session. Following talks by leading aficionados of the West, the auction begins at 2:00 p.m. and wraps up by 4:30, followed by a buffet-style country-style dinner.
