Art of the Cowgirl 2024

January 17 – 21

Horseshoe Park & Equestrian Centre

Queen Creek, Arizona

Please join us for Art of the Cowgirl in Queen Creek, Arizona, as we celebrate, gather, and connect Western women around horses and Western art.

Art of the Cowgirl 2024

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.

Our Story

In order to encourage and assist emerging artists of the western genre, Art of the Cowgirl provides a showcase through an annual gathering that celebrates cowgirls and their artistic contributions to the western lifestyle. In so doing, it raises the necessary funds to support emerging artists in expanding their knowledge and skills via fellowships with master artists in their field.

Betty Kunesh Award

Presented by Art of the Cowgirl

In honor of Grandma Betty, we have created the Betty Kunesh Legacy Award. This award is to be given to a woman who embodies the cowgirl spirit. Our hope is to honor those special women who are not always in the lime light: the women who work hard their whole lives leading by example, embracing fellowship and community, and honoring the western lifestyle.

We would like to congratulate the 2023 Recipient of this award, Judy Elam.
