“Colleagues”, wire sculpture by Angela (Hook) Bailey has been juried in to the Art of the West western art show in Kamloops, BC March 19-22, 2020.
The art show is part of the BC Cowboy Heritage Society’s 24th Annual Cowboy Festival.
This piece is a great example of contemporary art that captures the essence of the Old West. Horse and cowboy have been created from a single continuous strand of copper wire, embellished with actual horse hair to further enhance the authentic feeling of this sculpture.
Angela has captured a precious moment of respect and gratitude as the cowboy acknowledges his colleague with a well-deserved rest and a gentle touch.
Angela’s work continues to explore and appreciate the beauty of the horse and the relationships they have with their special people.
