To find some mighty fine art, spurs and a saddle.
Friday, Oct. 10, and Saturday, Oct. 11
Two great artistic undertakings come together under one show this weekend at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. Cowboy Crossings brings together works in the Cowboy Artists of America 49th Annual Sale & Exhibition with creations from the Traditional Cowboy Arts Association 16th Annual Exhibition & Sale. The CAA show features paintings, sculpture and more by contemporary artists. Working in a range of subjects and media, the artists are among the best in the Western art genre. The TCAA features stunning leatherwork, metalwork and more that goes into making more than just beautiful saddles, bridles, spurs, bags and other Western items and tack. The works are art themselves. Both shows will continue to run as exhibitions through Jan. 4. Cowboy Crossings opening weekend, however, will include plenty of extra activities, including a dinner and concert with Waden Bowen and the Lower 40. The museum is located at 1700 N.E. 63rd St. in Oklahoma City. For more, visit www.nationalcowboymuseum.org.
