The Dry Creek Arts Fellowship (DCAF) was founded in 1996, as a charitable and educational non-profit organization. Our mission is to provide a base of support for the preservation and future development of Western American art. DCAF has carried out this mission through the annual presentation of Trappings of the American West. Now in its 24th year, the show continues to honor the artistic heritage of the American cowboy. Eighty artists from fourteen Western states and Hawaii are chosen each year to submit new work. As a cultural heritage event, international visitors and those from around the United States have attended the exhibition and numerous public programs. From scholar and scientific forums, to gallery tours and artist demonstrations, folk music and cowboy poetry, DCAF believes that the diversity of programming brings a variety of audiences.
