SLOPOKE Fine Art of the West Exhibition and Sale takes over Solvang

SOLVANG, Calif. — The Flag Is Up Farms hosts the SLOPOKE Fine Art of the West Exhibition and Sale this weekend in Solvang. 

“People of all ages come to look at this show and my granddaughters for. To people who are deep in the regions. So that part's great", said founder Tom Bugher.

SLOPOKE is a western-themed exhibition and sale with 37 juried artists this year. 

“It's wonderful to see people come here and to appreciate what all these wonderful artists have put together. And I'm very proud to be among them", said Artist Carol Hartman.

This exhibition of western art is the only of its kind from Carmel to Laguna Beach, California. 

“I think and maybe cross blurred the lines of Western art and perhaps maybe a little more contemporary", said Artist Henry Blond.

Last year, every artist sold at least one art piece with each sale over $2200. 

“I Really enjoy my art and I enjoy making my art. I enjoy talking about my art. And I've always actually shared my method and how I do what I do. You know, it's a second career for me, so it's like I just do it because I love it", said Artist Janice Shultz.

This Sunday is the last day of the exhibition and sale which will end at 4 p.m. this evening. 

Stay tuned for our 6 p.m. show for the showcase of the western art exhibition.
