The Russell Auction


400 13th St. N.
Great Falls, MT 59401


Sealed Bid Sale
March 19, 2021

For 52 years The Russell Exhibition & Sale has featured a premiere offering of major historic works and contemporary Western art sold during an exciting multi-day event. Artists, collectors, and friends of the museum gathered to celebrate Charlie. The global pandemic required us to adjust this event in 2020 and to reimagine the gathering again this year. As such, The Russell Live Auction and its fresh lineup of events is scheduled for August 20 and 21, 2021; however, this Sealed Bid Sale is an exceptional opportunity to acquire an important piece of historic Western Art. Please participate knowing your bid will support the C.M. Russell Museum as we advance the Art & Soul of the American West.
