Images conjuring up the hot, dusty plains. Smell of horse and sweat. These images are an integral part of our national heritage, marking the drive west, for better or for worse.
The Cowboy Artists of America organization is dedicated to preserving, maintaining, and fostering an interest in this form of visual representation. Their website is full of good information for the collector and enthusiast. The thought of traveling to Jackson Hole, Wyoming to catch the upcoming CAA art auction makes my heart gallop!
