Heavy Horse Bidding

Hundreds of art enthusiasts gathered for the 32nd Annual Western Art Auction at the Calgary Stampede last night to bid on over 100 pieces of western themed art by artists from all over the world. The most sought after item during the auction was the original painting for the 2014 Calgary Stampede poster by Adeline Halvorson which sold for a $125,000.

The painting, named “Pulling Together”, honours the heavy horse, a symbol of strength, endurance and grace. Halvorson’s original artwork depicts a working horse with a calm, gentle disposition conveyed by its kind eye.
