The Museum of the Big Bend's signature exhibit, Trappings of Texas, opens this weekend. Visitors to this annual invitation-only show see works from the very best cowboy artists and gearmakers anywhere. Check it out here. Also in Alpine this weekend, is the Texas Cowboy Poetry Gathering.
A YouTube video of two of the best artists, father-son Mike and Wilson Capron, is here: http://www.youtube.com/user/TMTrail
