The Coutts Museum of Art

The Coutts Museum of Art The Coutts Museum of Art is located in El Dorado, KS and houses over 1,500 fine art pieces and sculptures. Founded by Warren Hall Coutts, Jr. in 1970 as a memorial to his son, the museum features Midwestern artists, and art from around the world.
The Coutts Museum of Art is a 501(c)3 Not for Profit Museum. The Coutts houses over 1,500 objects of art, including original paintings, sculptures, prints and drawings. The collection includes works from Russia, China, France, Holland, England, America, and South America. It has been enriched also by numerous donations of art by friends of the Museum.

The Coutts Museum of Art houses over 1,500 objects of art, including original paintings, sculptures, prints and drawings. Artworks for the museum were purchased mainly by Warren Hall Coutts, Jr. who traveled extensively and purchased works of art from all over the world. The collection includes works from Russia, China, France, Holland, England and South America. An important part of the museum is the work of prominent Kansas and Midwestern artists. Traditional- The museum has several wonderful examples of the Rococo style, including a prized still life by Georges Jeannin titled Floral Study. Contemporary- The collection offers a wide range of contemporary work starting with a marvelous collection of Prairie Printmaker’s work. The gallery is proud to house the largest Makk collection in the United States. Americo and Eva Makk and son A. B. are a world renowned family of painters. Western- Of particular interest to many viewers is the Western Art section of the gallery, which houses the largest collections of Frederic Remington bronzes in Kansas. As impressive are the Charles M. Russell and Frank Tenny Hoffman sculptures. One delightful aspect of the museum is the tasteful antique furnishings, some of which belonged to the Coutts family. Antique Persian rugs and artful arrangements set the mood for leisurely, relaxed browsing.

Just a little Sunday reading for interested artists.

Alexis Fedor

Just a little Sunday reading for interested artists.

Many artists wonder why they aren't making a profit with their art.

They just hop on social media or they’ll create their website but there’s no plan..... and they think more marketing is the answer.

It isn't.

The surprising fact is....these artists don’t need more marketing, they need to answer WHY!

How would I know? My name is Alexis Fedor and I help artists grow their profit. By helping artists discover their WHY I have helped artists double, if not triple, their bottom line. Why, and how, is this the case?

I'll share that with you in my free workshop: Marketing Your Art: Clarify Your Audience, Discover Your Ideal Client, Sell To The Right Clients (even if you’ve never sold a single offer!). Be sure to reserve your spot now!

The Coutts Museum of Art has an interesting background — as a bank, an attorney's office, and finally an art museum. This background is what makes the museum what it is today.

On this Memorial Day Weekend, we hope everyone stays safe! Here is a gentle reminder of the holiday meaning by James A. Garfield prior to becoming president, and a few statistics: “We do not know one promise these men made, one pledge they gave, one word they spoke; but we do know they summed up and perfected, by one supreme act, the highest virtues of men and citizens. For love of country they accepted death, and thus resolved all doubts, and made immortal their patriotism and their virtue.” May 30, 1868 Arlington National Cemetery
