Loren Entz, a representational and versatile painter of contemporary Wyoming cowboys, cattle and horses, with work in oil, charcoal, pencil, pastel, and watercolor. Loren was born in Newton, Kansas, in 1949. He left the city for a stint as a ranch hand in Montana and over time developed ties to the Western Art Scene and other artists in Cody, Wyoming. By 1981 his art had flourished and he had his first professional showing, winning an award at the Phippen Memorial Show. Loren's talent to honor and immortalize the pioneers who built this country with great artistic skill and elegance was recognized by the Cowboy Artists of America in 1993 when they invited him to join their prestigious association. His graceful painting style and choice of tender subject matter relates the beauty of the family spirit in the face of hardship, and reflects Loren's own character simultaneously. A gentle soul, Entz paints the quieter, more domestic side of rural life.
