Cowboy Artists of America is an organization devoted, in the words of the founders:
To perpetuate the memory and culture of the Old West as typified by the late Frederic Remington, Charles Russell and others;
To insure authentic representations of the life os the West, as it was and is;
To maintain standards of quality in contemporary Western art;
To help guide collectors of Western art;
To give mutual assistance in protection of artists’ rights;
To conduct a trail ride and campout in some locality of special interest once a year;
To hold an annual joint exhibition of the works of active members.
It is in the section of the organization’s web site devoted to the latter that you will find images of their work, in oil, water media and drawings, as well as dimensional works. Here is a link to the 2008 Awards, others are listed in the sidebar.
There are also selected works, usually one or two, shown with the members’ bios.
In my quick tour of the site, I found a number of artists that bear further investigation individually, but here is a nice opportunity to see them as a group.
