While horsemen showcase their horses’ graceful moves and athleticism at the National Cutting Horse Association’s most prestigious event of the year in Fort Worth, Texas, Western artists will unveil some of their latest works at a Western art show held in conjunction with the NCHA Futurity.

The second-annual Art of Cutting exhibit and sale features the work of 25 top Western artists, including 11 members of the Cowboy Artists of America. It will be held Sunday, November 27, in the Amon G. Carter Jr. Exhibit Hall at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth, Texas, and is open to the public. The show opens at 6 p.m. with a cocktail party and an exclusive shopping opportunity at the trade show, and the drop-box sale follows at 7 p.m. A portion of the sales benefits the NCHA Foundation, which provides scholarships to youth, financial assistance to cutters in crisis and preserves the heritage of cutting.

The art was unveiled at the start of the NCHA Futurity on November 17. Pieces that are not purchased during the sale will remain on display through the end of the event on December 10.

Participating artists include Wayne Baize, Don Bell, Buckeye Blake, Teal Blake, Tom Browning, Mary Ross Buchholz, Shawn Cameron, Tyler Crow, Steve Devenyns, Mikel Donahue, Bruce Greene, Harold T. Holden, T.D. Kelsey, Mark Kohler, Jan Mapes, Sharon Markwardt, Sharon McConnell, Virginia McLamb, Bill Nebeker, Lisa Perry, Jason Rich, Jason Scull, Travis Stewart, Herman Walker and Don Weller.
