Rules of Sale

The 2023 TCAA Exhibition & Sale will open Saturday, October 7 at 5:30 p.m. at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. Each attendee will receive a ballot book containing one ballot for each art piece in the exhibition. Each ballot book contains an assigned number registered to the purchaser of that ballot book.

The purchaser has from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. to drop their signed and numbered ballot into the box by the piece they wish to purchase. At 6:30 p.m. a salesperson will draw two names and post them on a large card near each work. The first name posted will have 20 minutes to reach the salesperson and pick up the bill of sale to confirm the purchase. A horn will blow to mark the end of 20 minutes. If the first person chosen has not claimed the work of art, then the second person becomes eligible to purchase the work for the next 20 minutes.

At approximately 7:10 p.m., unsold art is available on a first-come, first-served basis.


All art purchases require payment in full the night of the sale. Only the person whose name is posted can pay for the art. Paying for someone else’s art is not allowed.

Forms of Payment

Checks are to be made to National Cowboy Museum. Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover cards are also accepted. However, buyers choosing to pay by credit card will incur a fee on their total invoice of 3%.

Tax exemptions will be verified, and buyers must present proof of exemption at the time of purchase.
