Cowgirl Up Art Opening WeekendCowgirl Up!

In 2006, Desert Caballeros Western Museum embraced a revolutionary idea: an annual exhibition showcasing the brightest contemporary female artists working in the Western genre.

In the male-dominated world of Western Art, Cowgirl Up! turned the spotlight squarely on women’s voices and perspectives. It offers a new, deeper understanding of the American West.

Over a decade later, CU! remains one of the major national events for Western women artists.

More Than an Art Show

Cowgirl Up! is a crossroads where artists, collectors, and art enthusiasts come together to explore what it means to be a Western artist. CU! artists ride the range of techniques, styles, and mediums, traditional and contemporary.

Opening Weekend – join in the camaraderie!

During opening weekend, Frontier Street transforms into a tented venue for catered dinners, dancing, live auctions and an artists’ quick draw.

Your purchase of original artworks supports the endeavors of women artists working today and of the Desert Caballeros Western Museum. CU! art can be bought throughout the run of the exhibition at the Museum or online .

An exhibition first and a sale second.

Art featured in CU! remains on display until the exhibition closes in early May. This allows viewers to experience the art “all in one place, at one time” on each and every day of the show.
