Mosley named poster artist for 2013 Cowboy Festival

The Kamloops Cowboy Festival will take place March 7 - 10, at the Cavalry Temple in Kamloops

The 2013 Kamloops Cowboy Festival poster by artist Arnold Mosley.

The 2013 Kamloops Cowboy Festival poster art has been chosen.

This great drawing by Arnold Mosely of Terry Milliken won runner-up in the Art of the West Show and Sale at the 2012 Kamloops Cowboy Festival. Arnold also won first place at the same show with “Patience Required”.

This is the second time for Arnold, as he was also chosen earlier as the 2002 Kamloops Cowboy Festival’s Poster Artist.

Arnold talks about genuinely experiencing his art….living the western life that he is painting.

He spends countless hours riding along with the cowboys; studying, participating, and recording subject material for his cowboy artwork.

“You have to be able to get out there and absorb yourself in what the cowboys are doing. Experience for yourself, the days when it is so cold outside that the only warm spot is your saddle seat … and ornery cows or horses that would rather put you on the ground.”

This is one reason that Arnold’s work holds an outstanding reputation with serious collectors of western and cowboy art.

One other reason is that Arnold’s creations exhibit brilliant combinations of accuracy, composition, and mood, and convey all types of emotion.
