Local artist sells paintings at Coors Western Art Exhibition in Denver

DENVER, Colo. — Local artist David Michael Slonim of Anderson sold several oil paintings at the 21st Annual Coors Western Art Exhibition & Sale, which opened Jan. 7 and runs through Jan. 26. Slonim’s painting “Woodlands No. 14” sold by lottery draw for $9,500 to collector Bud Byrne of Denver.

“This is the first introduction of my new Woodlands series,” Slonim said in a press release. “These are abstract interpretations of the woods in the Anderson area. To have the work received so positively in a national venue is very encouraging.” Two smaller paintings in the series, “Woodlands No. 2” and “Woodlands No. 3,” each priced at $2,400, sold to the Coors family.

The Coors Western Art Exhibit & Sale supports the National Western Scholarship Trust. The 2013 show sold a record million dollars in art sales, with net proceeds being a record $254,000, providing financial support to more than 70 college students studying agribusiness and rural family medicine. Originated in 1993 by the wives and executives of the Coors Brewing Co., the Coors Art Show has grown to receive more than 35,000 visitors throughout the 16 days of the National Western Stock Show and Rodeo.
