For three days, the Coeur d’Alene Resort transforms several of its hotel rooms into mini art galleries showcasing the work of more than 60 contemporary artists from around the Western U.S. The Heart of the West Art Show was formerly held in Great Falls, Montana, but is hosted at a new venue this year on the shores of scenic Lake Coeur d’Alene. The public is invited to view art, and watch artists in action during live “Quick Draws” throughout the weekend. Additionally, there are presentations and panels with the artists, and the weekend concludes with a live art auction on Saturday evening.
