The Florida Cowboy Art & Culture exhibit at Florida House grew out of an original exhibition, Lay of the Land, in Winter Park, Florida, that showcased fine arts and crafts of Florida’s Cattle Community. Featured are many facets of Cowboy culture, from representations of Florida’s working landscape and those who toil daily in this heartland, to depictions of stock, wildlife, work, weather and incidents occurring in the dailiness of this setting. The “creators” of the Art have rendered and spoken from the privileged position of experience and connectedness, what the great Mississippi Gulf Coast painter, Walter Anderson, referred to as “Special Knowledge.”

The area of coverage in art and vision comprises much of Florida’s heartland and over half a century of time and event. This undertaking has been the direct result of travel to the sites of creativity, or locations of collections of each artist, to choose the works.

We wish all visitors to this wonderful show could have experienced first hand, the workshops, studios, households, and most importantly, lives underlying this exhibition.

Florida House is open from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday and is free to the public.

Thank you to curators Sean Sexton and Robert Stone.
