Featured artist: Tyler Crow

Elder Care is honored to be featuring the artwork of renowned western artist Tyler Crow on the invitation and posters for its 2017 fundraiser, The Good, The Bad and The Barbeque. The image of Crow’s painting titled “And then… All of a Sudden.” displays the beautiful detail of the realistic life of a cowboy.

 Tyler Crow has spent his young life in the small town of Apache, Oklahoma. A 2007 graduate of Apache High School, Crow always had paper and pencil with him drawing horses. During his senior year he entered a pencil drawing in the Oklahoma Youth Expo at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. Winning Reserve Best of Show and a scholarship gave him a chance to attend a weeklong summer painting workshop co-taught by Bruce Greene and Martin Grelle. This was the first time he had ever held a paintbrush in his hand.

 Crow’s artistic talent has continued to evolve over the years. He has attended additional workshops and has been featured in several art shows where he has received recognition and awards for his western art.

Mr. Crow’s artwork can be seen on his website or on his Facebook page, Tyler Crow Art.
