BIG HORN — The Brinton Museum will present “Spring Roundup with the Traditional Cowboy Arts Association,” an international exhibition featuring 14 master artisans of the prestigious TCAA.
A nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving the standard of time-honored craftsmanship in the cowboy arts, the TCAA promotes the disciplines of silversmithing, rawhide braiding, bit and spur making, and saddlemaking, and the roles they play in the culture of the North American West.
“There is a strong culture and tradition that formed us and we are proud of it…,” TCAA president Wilson Capron said. “The Brinton Museum is a perfect place to tell our story and to talk about the story of the West.”
The Brinton’s show includes exceptional pieces such as California Mission-style saddles with ornate, carved floral designs; decorative California-style spurs; sterling and gold metal work; ornate spade bits inlaid with fine silver; exquisite rawhide braided reins, and more.
“Spring Roundup with the Traditional Cowboy Arts Association” opens Friday and will continue in the third floor Jacomien Mars Reception Gallery through July 29.
The Brinton is open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is located at 239 Brinton Road in Big Horn.
