Last weekend, the Kemp Center for the Arts and the Kemp at the Forum (formerly the Woman's Forum) played host to some of the finest cowboy artists in the southwest.  No, not every single artist was a working cowboy, but all of the artists shared a common love for the life and work of the true, working cowboy.  Hence the name, Cowboy True.

The event was the brainchild of cowboy, educator and artist Dan Shores and featured music (Mike Blakely, Prairie Moon), cowboy poetry from Ed Harvill and some of the best food money can buy, courtesy of the Kiowa Cooks and Texoma Cowboy Church.  It was, by any measure you can imagine, a true success!

Carol Sales from the Kemp Center dropped by the Rise and Shine Show today to thank Texoma for supporting this event.
