As I’ve been bounty-huntin’ cowboy boots for my book… I’ve discovered that a handful of the boots I want to photograph are currently being “held hostage” in Houston’s Center for Contemporary Craft …part of an exhibit called COWBOY: Craft of the American West.
The show features handmade cowboy gear …including cowboy boots crafted by Ray Dorwart (Guthrie, OK), Stephanie Ferguson (Millsap, TX), Bob McClean (Sedona, AZ) and Gary & Clara McGlasson (Spokane, WA.)
Visit the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft before March 26th, 2006 ….or catch a glimpse of a few of the items included in this photo slideshow.
Otherwise you may have to wait until my book comes out next Spring!
