Mike Tabor Demonstrator at October 12th LGAA Meeting

LGAA Meeting
LGAA MEETING - MONDAY, October 12 - 7pm

Mike Tabor
Mike Tabor is one of the most respected American western expressionistic artists. Born in Fort Worth, Texas, this third generation rancher began drawing and chasing artistic endeavors at an early age. He began his formal training in 1974 at Tarleton State University. Upon his graduation, he cowboyed on various ranches before settling down to pursue an art career. Mike still maintains the family ranch in Hood and Somervell counties of North Central Texas.

Tabor credits the pop artist of the 1960’s and the impressionist movement to his approach in the breaking of traditional representations of western themes. His work has been best described as “postmodern western.” His concern for light, color, and design becomes an intense emotional interpretation in an effort to create more with less.

A career that began doing drawings for beef cattle publications has expanded into a range of work displaying paintings, sculptures, and assemblages. Tabor has worked with collectors and corporate affiliations from coast to coast, including the home furnishing industry in the U.S. as well as across Europe.
