Moultrie - If you miss all those old movies about the wild wild west, you can reminisce at an art gallery.

The Colquitt County Arts Center has an original collection of western movie posters. Some posters date back to the early 1900's.

Executive Director Becca Turner says, "It has been one of the most well attended events we've had all year, simply because so many people enjoy western movies and remember when they used to watch a lot of westerns."

The gallery also has seven bronze western sculptures, including pieces made by Frederick Remington.

The Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville collected the posters but from individuals who kept them.

The posters and sculptures will round up and head the road on September 30th.
