The First Maker EXPERIENCE 

Presented by Rio Grande

For the first time, we are offering the opportunity to dabble in arts! We’re excited to offer short classes in the Maker Experience presented by Rio Grande to those wishing to create their very own piece of art at Art of the Cowgirl. Our professional instructors make their mediums approachable for any experience level, especially beginners!

Second Annual Artist Quick Draw

We are excited to bring this component to our event to showcase 6-8 artists.

We will be taking applications for artists to apply to be in the Quick Draw Event. Applications are now closed. Artists will be announced soon!

THIRD ANNUAL 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.
