2015 Cowboy Artists of America and Cowboy Crossings September 30 2015

We are thrilled to be part of the Cowboy Artists of America's 50th Anniversary Art Show and Sale.  Tim will have two paintings this year, and one of them is the largest he has done since becoming a member in 2007.

Here is Tim's quote for Trading Treasures:

"I have always admired the creative collaborations the the Traditional Cowboy Arts Association (TCAA) members have done. While I was viewing the TCAA's collection at the Crossings Art Show one year with Pablo Lozano and Domingo Hernandez, I began planning how I could do a collaboration with the TCAA.

I remember how Honorary Member, Don Hedgepeth, always brought his war bag of goods to trade with the Cowboy Artists of America on our trail rides each year and the fun that generated in camp. Many years ago, some of my cowboy classmates returned from the big northern ranches with shiny bits, spurs and braided wares and I was happy to trade with them. Many times since then, I have been at ranches with other cowboys and witnessed them trading their treasures.

I am excited to finally be doing a painting honoring western craftsmen from generations before, up and coming artisans, and the TCAA elite from now. I am tying this all together with a frame made by CA member, Bruce Greene's son, Adam, the center decorated by a tooled leather inlay by Cary Schwartz, ornamental metal corner cartouches by Wilson Capron Bits & Spurs, LLC, and a silver and gold filigreed and engraved name plate by Scott Hardy Silver/Goldsmith.

Tim has been honored with being the poster artist for the 50th Annual Cowboy Artists of America Art Show and Celebration at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. The painting features cowboys in camp "Trading Treasures", and they are TRUE collectibles since many of the items, like Wilson Capron's Longhorn Spurs, Cary Schwarz and Scott Hardy headstall with and Tim's prize Presidential CA bit that the two guys are holding. Tim even put a Rawhide Reata, Braided Rawhide Belt, Romal and Reins by Pablo Lozano, The popper on Pablo's reins was made by Cary Schwatz. All of these items are made by the Traditional Cowboy Arts Association members, who are also featured in Cowboy Crossings with the CA's. Other items are our own antique Kelly Steer Head - Arrow Shanked Spurs, Tim's new Jim Gregory saddle on the front horse, chaps on the ground are by Calla Cox Mackey, and the Hereford Bull Head Silver Spurs overlay are also Kellys. The cowboys sitting on the ground have a Billy Klapper 27 that was a gift to Tim by his wife, Suzie, for Christmas and Ernie Marsh Brothers Silver & Saddle Shop's Hummingbird Spade Bit."

We will also have another painting in the show. This painting has been to special previews for the 50th Anniversary as far away as the Booth Western Art Museum.
