About the Favell Museum For over 45 years, the Favell Museum has protected and preserved some of the nation’s finest contemporary western art and Native American artifacts. The art collection includes Charles M. Russell, John Clymer, and Frank McCarthy.  Last year, thousands of people visited what America’s Byways magazine called “one of the three best such museums in the United States.” The museum founders successfully hosted art shows from 1973–2001. Celebrated artists were featured, while collectors from across the country attended. After the museum founder’s passing, the show was discontinued. The museum eventually became a non-profit organization. In 2013 the tradition of supporting and promoting exceptional artists was proudly renewed!

 

The Favell Museum Art Show & Sale is an annual exhibition, featuring original, contemporary, representational art from approximately 30 artists, including oil, pastel, watercolor, acrylic, and mixed media. Up to four sculptors will be accepted. The 2017 show will open with an artist weekend on September 15th-17th. The show will run through October 28th. Artists are encouraged to attend the opening weekend, beginning with a Friday evening patron/membership reception, a full day of demonstrations/attractions on Saturday, all culminating with a fabulous Sunday champagne/appetizer brunch.

Following the opening weekend:

  • Activities will be offered on September 23rd, in association withArts on the Flyway, a Klamath Falls Downtown/Main Street art festival. The museum plays a leading role in the planning of the festival.
  • The museum will host a number of small gatherings for buyers, including a closing event on Saturday, October 28th. Artists are encouraged to attend the closing event – unsold art may beretrieved at that time.
