Art lovers can see and buy some of the best and priciest Western art in the world in Reno this weekend.
The 33rd annual Coeur d’Alene Art Auction will be Saturday at the Grand Sierra Resort.
It’s the biggest Western art auction in the country, said Parker Stremmel of Reno’s Stremmel Gallery, which is affiliated with the show.
It’s big money, too: The 2017 auction generated more than $6 million in bids during the live sale, according bidding platform Bidsquare.
In 2013, a painting by Frederic Remington sold for $5.6 million at the auction, and a Norman Rockwell painting fetched $4.2 million, according to the Stremmel Gallery blog.
