The Museum of the Big Bend will host its big exhibit and sale of contemporary Western art and custom cowboy gear virtually — beginning April 16.
One of the best Western art and custom cowboy gear exhibits and sales in the country, Trappings of Texas showcases the work of both up-and-coming and well-established artists. The show is normally held at the Museum of the Big Bend on the campus of Sul Ross State University in Alpine, Texas, but this year the museum is hosting a Virtual Trappings of Texas Exhibit and Sale.
All of the Trappings artists and their works will be posted on the museum’s site and will be available for purchase starting on April 16th starting at high noon CST.
Purchases help to support Trappings artists and the Museum of the Big Bend.
