The Young Guns of the National Western started in 2013 with a goal to facilitate young professionals gaining a better understanding of Western art and insight into how to invest in art, support the National Western Stock Show's growth, and to host fun events throughout the year, culminating in the Young Guns Reception in December. Proceeds from the Young Guns events support the National Western Scholarship Trust.

This year's Young Guns Reception is December 7th, kicking off the 2023-2024 Stock Show season. The Young Guns Pop-Up Exhibit features local, emerging artists selling work in price ranges more accessible to Young Guns attendees.
