'By Western Hands' furniture show in Cody Sept. 23-26

Continuing a long legacy of pioneer craftsmanship in Western furniture design, Cody is once again hosting a furniture show.

By Western Hands will showcase 26 of the West's most talented artisans and craftsmen during a Sept. 23-26 exhibition, event organizers say.

With the support of the Buffalo Bill Center of the West and the Cody Country Chamber of Commerce, the furniture show is being organized by a dedicated core group of private benefactors and volunteers. Bryant Hall of Cody is the show's director.

Though there will be significant representation from Cody and northwest Wyoming, participants will also be coming from Montana, Colorado, Oregon, Washington, and Wisconsin. This year's show will shift from previous formats and will be presented as a respective exhibition rather than a sale.

It will be held on the museum grounds, south of the main building and adjacent to the art show tent. It opens Wednesday, Sept. 23, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

On the opening day, By Western Hands will also host Chase Reynolds Ewald who will give a presentation on Cody's history in Western design. Ewald’s presentation, "Cody Style: A Century of Western Design," will begin at 3 p.m. at the Coe Library inside the Buffalo Bill Center of the West.

The exhibit will be open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 24, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 25, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 26.
