Bruce Greene has spent a lifetime carving his niche in the world of art.  Renowned for his sculptures, drawings, and paintings, Greene has art displayed in private collections and prominent public places, including Baylor University, Globe Life Park in Arlington, and the Alamo.  He was elected into membership in the Cowboy Artists of America in 1993 and has served two terms as their president.  He has won numerous awards in CAA exhibitions, most recently capturing the Anne Marion Best of Show Award.  Greene won the Donald Teague Award at the 2018 Prix de West and is a two-time winner of the CAA’s Ray Swanson Memorial Award, given for artwork “that best communicates a moment in time and captures the emotion of the moment.”  Bruce credits his authenticity to annual trips to the JA Ranch in the Palo Dura Canyon.  “We ride a lot of miles in rough country....It seems necessary, to me, in order to depict the contemporary cowboy with accuracy and feeling. My good friend, Red Steagall, calls it ‘getting the dust in your nose.’ For me, that dust makes the difference.”

Bruce and his wife, Janie, live just outside of Clifton in an 1883 farmstead they restored.
