“There are so many incredibly talented female western artists working to represent the western way of life, those rugged and beautiful spaces, and the people and animals that live in them. When we bring these works to the public it enhances our understanding of the west and its inhabitants, adding untold stories and creating a more complete picture of the cowgirl way of life.”
Megan Wimberley, Founder, Cowgirl Artists of America
