Modern Spur Exhibit - Atrium Gallery

POSTED: Monday, May 1, 2023

Beauty is found in a multitude of places; in this case, it is displayed on boots.

During the month of May, the second half of the spurs display, a modern spur exhibit will be available for viewing in the Atrium Gallery.  The BAC provides a special treat in conjunction with the exhibit, compliments of the WK Gordon Museum and Tarleton University. 

Modern day Texas cowboy and master craftsman Wilson Capron will be on site Thursday, May 4.  Starting at 6:30 with a reception, Capron will then speak about his vocation and avocation as a creator, designer and spur maker. 

Capron grew up in West Texas in family ranching and was influenced early by his father, a cowboy artist himself.  He earned his degree in Ag-Business in 1996 from Texas A&M-Commerce. The same year he apprenticed under well-known bit and spur maker Greg Darnall.  Capron has turned this utilitarian cowboy necessity into a thing of beauty with his unique designs and artistic applications.  Capron currently resides in Christoval, Texas with his wife and their daughters where his interest in roping and horsemanship continue to contribute to his art.

The May 4 reception will begin at 6:30 p.m. and Capron will speak at 7:00 p.m.  The public is invited to attend.  The modern-day spur exhibit will run May 1-31 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and other times during BAC events.
