Important works by Glenna Goodacre, Scott Christensen, Clyde Aspevig Highlight Heritage Auctions’ September Art of the West Sale

Several exquisite private collections will be showcased in September event


Glenna Goodacre Crossing the Prairie
DALLAS, Texas (Aug. 22, 2019) – More than 150 Western art highlights from multiple significant private collections will be among the top attractions in Heritage Auctions' Art of the West American Art auction Sept. 7 in Dallas, Texas.

The sale will feature a comprehensive selection of bronzes and paintings by important artists of the American West. Among this collection is a handful of works by prolific artist Clyde Aspevig, who is known for his loose, realistic depictions of the vast landscapes across Wyoming and Montana. Also featured in the auction will be Glenna Goodacre, who will celebrate her 80th birthday and 50th anniversary as a sculptor this fall. Goodacre's sculptures are coveted for their lively expression, texture, design and movement. Her beginning career as a painter provided the foundation for her first bronzes created in 1969. In 2003, she was awarded the prestigious Texas Medal Of Arts, and later that year was inducted into the Cowgirl Hall Of Fame in Fort Worth. In October, 2016, she announced her complete retirement from sculpting and casting bronzes. Among her top pieces in the sale is Crossing the Prairie, for which Goodacre won the 2002 James Earl Fraser Sculpture Award at the Prix de West Exhibition in Oklahoma City.

Also included in the sale are works from such notable artists as G. Harvey, Glenna Goodacre, Bev Doolittle, Tucker Smith, Ray Swanson and many more.

"With the strength of the Western Art market, the Art of the West auction is intended to make Western Art accessible to collectors of all levels,” said Alissa Ford, Director of Western Art at Heritage Auctions. "This auction is dedicated to the wonders of the West and will include many vistas of our most cherished landmarks of the American West.”
