The Mission of Cowboy True is to educate the region about the honor, art, and beauty of the cowboy’s daily life.
Cowboy True is a celebration to honor working cowboys and the artwork that comes from their daily lives. During the weekend of April 1-2, 2016, juried cowboy artists from around the nation will be featured at the J.S. Bridwell Ag Center to display their unique works derived from cowboy life. Categories include: bits, spurs, buckles, jewelry, gun/knife engraving, saddles, boots, trappings/gear, photography, paintings, drawings, sculptures, carving, cowboy cartoons, and pottery. Events for Cowboy True include Friday night artists reception and opening, Saturday daytime activities (and exhibit open to the public) and Saturday night dinner, live auction, and entertainment. All proceeds go to The Forum to assist with programming and mission fulfillment.
