One of the most anticipated events of the year is coming up at the Museum of the Big Bend--a show of traditional cowboy artists and gear makers. Here's a view from the sketchbook of one of the best bit and spur maker in the country, Wilson Capron, who will be exhibiting at the Trappings of Texas. Plan to visit the show on the campus of Sul Ross State University in Alpine, February 28 through April 26. And stay tuned here for more previews of the work!
Two other related events take place on Trapping's opening weekend, Alpine's Texas Cowboy Poetry Festival right next door to the Museum of the Big Bend, and a new event, Van Horn's Texas Crossroads Cowboy Gathering.
