The Great Basin Western Art Foundation is an organization associated with the Northeastern Nevada Museum. The intention of the foundation is to collect, preserve, and display visual art of all media specific to the Great Basin and to Western Culture. The spirit and mystique of the Old West is alive today in Elko. This is due in large part to the bustling ranching economy, the active rodeo community, and a common love of the outdoor experience that surrounds the high desert town. The Great Basin Western Art Foundation hopes to present and conserve that culture through art. As an organization devoted to preserving art of the Great Basin, we also want to support artists whose work is regionally western but may not fall within the stylistic genre of western art. It is our hope that we may display many forms of artistic composition in order to expose Northeatern Nevada to different kinds of expression. The primary goal of the Great Basin Western Art Foundation is to generate funds that will aid in building a western and regional art collection at the Northeastern Nevada Museum. The annual Art of the West Show exhibits in conjunction with the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering held in Elko the last week of January. Each year, the Great Basin Western Art Foundation will purchase one piece from the show for the Northeastern Nevada Museum's permanent art collection. Members of the foundation will vote on which piece to purchase. Voting takes place by coming into the Museum or by mailed ballot. Will James, High Bucking Horse, 1930. Museum collection donated by Don Frazier Part of the Flagship of the museum's Western Art collection. An annual membership is $100. Your generosity will help ensure Western Art thrives in Northeastern Nevada. Join Today!
