Legends of the Old West by Kellie Hudson



Legends of the Old West by Kellie Hudson

January 4 – February 20, 2019

RECEPTION: Friday, January 4, 2019


The legend of a cowboy starts with the foundational cow herd, after all a cowboy without

a cow is just a boy. This exhibition is dedicated to the animals that helped make the

cowboys legendary, and the west wild.


Longhorn cattle built a whole legacy in Texas and throughout North America. These

cattle are wiley and cunning. Their resilience is renown, and their beauty is unparalleled.

Between the Longhorn and the indigenous Bison species the West truly was wild. The

need for tough men to learn to work and wrangle these great herds gave rise to the epic

larger than life cowboy. I seek to honor the tradition and rugged charm of the beautiful

beasts that created the legendary cowboy through my artwork, carvings done on the

actual skulls and horns of these famous bovine.
