COWBOY TRUE ART EXHIBIT & AUCTION
GOING VIRTUAL! JULY 31-AUGUST 1
Details:
The Arts Council WF is moving forward with the 9th Annual Cowboy True Art Exhibit & Auction and it will be
held on Friday, July 31 and Saturday, August 1 – ALL ONLINE at CowboyTrue.org!
Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions and health guidelines, our committee agreed to cancel the
physical exhibit this year, but we are excited to bring you a brand-new way of viewing the artwork.
Through our juried art exhibit, we bring a wide variety of Cowboy Arts to Wichita Falls and beyond. Guests
can visit CowboyTrue.org to view the complete exhibit, including artists from around the country who can
show you their work and talk to you about cowboy art. We’ll also be live-streaming musical performances,
awards announcements, prize drawings and much more. Tickets for the Cow Camp prize drawings are $50
and can be purchased online at CowboyTrue.org. List of prizes includes 8 items, such as a Whispers of
Hope Trail Ride, a time share to several destination options, a Charlie One Horse Hat, a handmade knife by
artist Harold Losey and a custom designed silver belt buckle by artist Dan Shores.
