The 2022 Jay Contway Art Show

We are the Jay Contway Art Show

For 35 years Jay Contway brought a unique blend of artists and craftsmen to Western Art Week in Great Falls through the Jay Contway Art Show. Joined by his wife Lynn in 1995, together they created a distinctive brand which not only compliments The Russell, it supports the C.M. Russell Museum. The show remains true to the cowboy traditions.

It is the annual gathering of friends at the Jay Contway Art Show that excited Jay, it is the unique work and the friendships developed that make this a legacy—a legacy Jay wanted to continue into the future!

The Jay Contway Art Show, a legacy built by Jay and Lynn Contway to continue and grow with new and old friends!
