Bob CoronatoBob Coronato Exhibits at "Masters of the American West" at The Autry Museum, Los Angeles

Bob Coronato missed our Phoenix show and auction this year but he had the most honorable of excuses. Bob was invited to participate in the Autry National Center’s renowned annual “Masters of the American West” Fine Art Exhibition and Sale, which opened on Saturday, February 7th in Los Angeles, CA.

Riding Blood Brother by Bob CoronatoThis was the first time Bob was invited and he was completely “humbled by the experience,” as only 75 artists are invited to participate each year. “I received this wonderful invitation a year ago and spent the better part of the last 12 months working on the three paintings I created specifically for this sale.”

The three works Bob created are entitled: Crow Family Reunion, Where Does A Cowboy Go When There’s No More Range To Ride, and Riding Blood Brother – I Thought I Got On Backwards Because I Never Saw His Head.  All three of these paintings reflect Bob’s passion for keeping the lifestyle of the remote and free West alive.

It is with great pride that we are able to report that Crow Family Reunion sold for $35,000 at the opening evening reception. Crow Family Reunion by Bob CoronatoHis other two works will remain on exhibit through the duration of the “Masters of the American West” which runs through March 8, 2009. We encourage everyone to go to the Autry Museum to see this magnificent display of fine Western art, which is so important to all of us.

From all of us at High Noon, we wish Bob the warmest congratulations!
