Join us for The Russell Exhibition and Sale!

September 12, 2020


The Russell Sale will still proceed on September 12 using online auction platforms with telephone and absentee bidding options available as well. The First Strike Auction will begin at 10 a.m. MDT, followed by the Russell Sale at 1 p.m. MDT.
For 2020, Art in Action will be unlike any other. Get to know each artist by watching our “Art in Action” Artist Showcase interviews with Tom Figarelle, created specifically for this event and posted to our YouTube channel and Facebook page. Select your favorite and bid online in this timed auction format! Each year Art in Action artists support the C.M. Russell’s exhibition and educational programming by allowing the museum to benefit from 100% of the sales. THIS YEAR, artists participating in this event will receive 100% of the winning bid for their Art in Action piece. Auction artwork will be posted and bidding will begin at 8am MDT on September 1st and end at 12pm (noon) MDT on September 21, 2020.
This certainly isn’t the way any of us envisioned The Russell for this year but we look forward to offering all the incredible art included in the catalogue for sale in September and giving buyers a variety of ways to bid remotely, including multiple online platforms, absentee, and phone bidding. We are working with our auctioneer Troy Black to make this year’s auction just as exciting as ever so you can enjoy it from the comfort of your own home.
