Announcing the Poster for the 33rd Gathering
|We are pleased to unveil the 33rd National Cowboy Poetry Gathering poster. It features the painting, Moving the Corrientes (2010), by award-winning Tucson artist Howard Post. Brought up on a ranch outside Tucson, Post is a former rodeo cowboy with a masters degree in fine arts. His work is included in many important collections, including the Smithsonian and the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. Excerpts from Linda M. Hasselstrom's poem, "Where the Stories Come From" (Bitter Creek Junction, 2000), border the painting, in honor of the storytelling theme of our 33rd Gathering. Read more.|
