The Buckaroo Heritage Western Art Roundup was started in 1983 by Carl Hammond. Western & Buckaroo artists & artisans attend annually to exhibit their "Buckaroo" art; rawhide braiding, silverwork, horsehair & leather gear, as well as paintings, drawings & sculpture steeped in Vaquero tradition. Western artists of all genre show & sell at this judged event - but some of their work should reflect the Buckaroo theme of "The Roundup."
Make plans now to attend the Western Art Roundup over Labor Day weekend in Nevada featuring a "Quick-Draw," a wine tasting, a fund-raising banquet (proceeds to the Buckaroo Heritage Western Art Roundup and Buckaroo Hall of Fame), entertainment such as music or Cowboy Poetry, and even an exciting benefit auction for the Buckaroo Hall of Fame, where master artists & artisans offer their work to the highest bidder.
