Modern Art Cowboy is a community-focused art business that prioritizes on working with local Contemporaty Artist groups in an effort to support diversity, equity and inclusion within the Art and Design community. By providing networks and resources to Artists from BIPOC, API, Indigenous, Veterans, People with Disabilities and The Youth; vital arts from communities that have been disproportionately marginalized can be accessible and celebrated.
Along with acquiring artists' works for sale and placement, Modern Art Cowboy also focuses on creating work opportunities by partnering local artists with brands, businesses, companies and community organizations.
The salon space gives priority to show casing and providing a platform for these marginalized artist groups via art shows, pop-ups, auctions, events, marketing services, sales, establishing strong connections and relationships with local businesses, brands, sponsors, patrons, collectors, public institutions and non-profits.
Modern Art Cowboy also focuses on acquiring Lost Modern Works from Post-War artists who are retired, no longer in practice or who have passed without their works having ever been shown, appreciated or found the right collectors and home. Often their estates are managed by family members who are overwhelmed and no longer have the capacity or desire to maintain a lifetime of creation, study, practice and productivity. Rescuing and Recovering these collections is a Passion. Preserving these works, their original and artistic processes, sharing their histories and the lives of these often forgotten artists allows for future generations to access their Ancestry through Artistry.
Modern Art Cowboy operates with a focus on creating work opportunities for and providing representation of marginalized artist groups. Creating equal accessibility for all to Fine Art and Design through research, restoration, resale and education.
