Brian Lebel, Old West Show & Auction, announces that the nation’s largest and most important annual event for collectors and enthusiasts of the American West will be held June 11-12, 2016 at the Amon G. Carter Exhibit Hall in Fort Worth, TX.

Celebrating its 27th year and 2nd annual event in Fort Worth, TX, the event will host more than 170 dealers and exhibitors and more than 400 auction items.

Lebel notes that, “Show attendees will find authentic western fine art, collectibles, apparel, jewelry, home design, antique & historic firearms, books, boots, spurs, saddles and other fine merchandise.” Adding to the variety at the show, Gunsmoke’s Buck Taylor who played Newly, the gunsmith-turned-deputy, will be there with his art.

“For those interested in authentic Native American art and collectibles there will be jewelry, baskets, pots, rugs, art, and clothing,” he added.

“We are excited to announce that a portion of the ticket sales along with the auctioning of an original contemporary western art painting by Lyndon Gaither will benefit the Careity Foundation. They provide services and early detection for economically challenged women and men cancer patients, and relief for children with devastating diseases.” said Lebel.

“We are unlike any other art and antique shows in the area,” comments show producer Melissa McCracken. “For two days, we provide an upscale shopping experience with an unmatched variety of specialty retailers,” she added. Lebel and McCracken invite not only western and Indian art and antique aficionados to come shop, they encourage other north Texas residents to come and see and learn about the history of our significant western heritage.

The auction on Saturday, June 11, includes more than 400 lots. Notable among the lots are Annie Oakley’s Parker Brothers Shotgun along with her traveling trunk, Texas Ranger Hall of Fame Honoree Clint People’s Remington Rifle, and Dallas Cowboy’s former owner Bum Bright’s personal Bohlin saddle. Additionally items from the estate of actor and art collector, Dennis Farina, will be auctioned including a Richard Lillis oil painting. Farina is probably best known for his role as Detective Joe Fontana on Law and Order. 

For movie buffs interested in Hollywood cowboys, the auction offers Jimmy Stewart’s suit from The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (estimate $2,500-$3,500), and the “new-fangled” barber chair where Wyatt got his shave in the iconic scene from My Darling Clementine (estimate $1,500-$2,500).

Catalogues are available for purchase and lots may be viewed online at bid.oldwestevents.com. Both the auction preview and auction are free and open to the public.
