Art of the Cowgirl 2025

We will feature female makers, including master artists, silversmiths, braiders, saddlemakers, and horsewomen. The event will not only provide entertainment and honor women of the west, but also provide fellowships to individuals to further their knowledge with master artists in the trade of choice. The contributions of these cowgirl makers are truly worth celebrating and we look forward to sharing them with you.

Now Open!

The Art of the Cowgirl Fellowship program will encourage and further arts and trades amongst western women, both celebrating and continuing tradition and inspiring innovation. By establishing mentorship and investing in up and coming artists, we will foster creativity and preserve traditional art and functional gear. In providing this opportunity, our hope is that age, location, and lack of funds will no longer be a limiting factor for those interested in pursuing art and artistic trades.

Tribute to Tammy Pate

We mourn and celebrate the life of our fearless leader and founder, Tammy Pate. She passed away on December 21st after a brave battle with cancer. As we look towards the future Art of the Cowgirl, we will honor Tammy’s vision by gathering people around art, horses, community, music- all the things that she loved. We look forward to carrying on Tammy’s legacy and we hope to see you at a future event.
