Honorary Artist Members

The Mountain Oyster Club developed the “Honorary Artist Member” designation for Club membership fifty years ago to recognize and reward outstanding participating Western Artists in the Club’s Annual Contemporary Western Art Show and Sale. Since the early 1970’s, over 90 renowned western artists have accepted the Club’s invitation to join the Mountain Oyster Club as an Honorary Artist Member for their lifetime and to have their work held in the Mountain Oyster Club’s exceptional permanent art collection, exhibited in perpetuity in the Club. Honorary Artist Members are held in the highest esteem by their fellow MO Club members.
