Fence Post contributor’s work displayed at prestigious photographic show
The eighth annual City of Lone Tree, Colo., Photographic Art Show kicked off at the Lone Tree Golf Club and Hotel. The show will run April 3-24 and if the opening reception was any indication, this year will have record attendance.
This year also had a record number of 342 entries into the juried competition. The entries were judged by noted photographers George Jardine and Nathaniel Coalson and 114 photographers were invited to display their work for judging.
Fence Post readers are familiar with the photo journalism of regular contributor, Tony Bruguiere of Fort Collins, Colo. Readers are probably not as familiar with the fact that Bruguiere’s fine art photography has been displayed at the Colorado Museum of Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins and the International Fine Art Photography Exhibit at Denver International Airport.
Bruguiere had two images chosen for display and one of them, titled “Real Cowboy” was awarded an Honorable Mention. “I’m very happy just to have two of my images displayed at Lone Tree.” Bruguiere said, “This is a first class show. It’s great to be able to show these folks a glimpse into the life of a real working cowboy. I’m real excited that Scotty Hall, the cowboy in the picture could come up from Pueblo.”
Scotty Hall and the North Pueblo Ranch have been featured in The Fence Post twice in articles by Tony Bruguiere. Asked why he drove up from Pueblo, Hall said, “The number of working cowboys gets smaller every year. As a member of the Working Ranch Cowboy’s Association (WRCA), part of what we do is to promote the lifestyle of ranch cowboys. Some of these folks have never seen a real cowboy, so I thought I would come up and show ’em one in the flesh.”
