GREENE FEATURED ON TEXAS PROGRAM - The art of Bruce Greene
win be presented on the souvenir program at the annual 1997 "TEXAS'
musical drama in Palo Duro Canyon. One of the paintings represented is
"Halos In The Dust."
‘Texas’ Musical Drama Presents
Work Of Clifton Artist Bruce Greene
CANYON — The paintings of cow-
boy artist Bruce Greene will be featured
in the 1997 souvenir program of the
“TEXAS” musical drama.
‘TEXAS'* opens its 32nd season on
June 11, and plays nightly except Sun-
day at 8:30 p.m. through Aug. 23, in
Palo Duro Canyon State Park near Can-
yon and Amarillo.
“TEXAS” annually selects a cowboy
artist’s work to enhance the western
tones projected in the outdoor drama’s
script. As audience members reflect on
their Palo Duro Canyon experience, the
western scenes scattered throughout
the souvenir program are vivid remind-
ers of die culture upon which “TEXAS”
Like all artists selected by “TEXAS,”
Greene is a member of the Cowboy Art-
ists of America. A native of Mesquite,
Greene grew up watching Roy Rogers,
Trigger, and any western he could find
on television. His proudest moment as
an artist was his induction into the elite
cowboy artist group in 1993.
Though he didn’t grow up on a ranch,
Greene has drawn horses for as long as
he can remember. His art training be-
gan at the age of eight as die Museum
of Fine Art in Dallas. There, his art was
chosen to be a part of a children’s ex-
hibit which toured Europe. At age 15,
Greene traveled in Germany and France
studying art and architecture.
Long before the Mesquite Champion-
ship Rodeo found fame on TNN, Greene
rode bulls at the weekly rodeo in his
hometown. While studying art at the
University of Texas, Greene photo-
graphed other rodeo competitors to
help pay the bills.
With an art degree, a wife, and a new
baby, Greene displayed and sold some
Of his first work on the town square of
Rockwell on election day. While his
wife cared for seven children in their
home, Greene closed the bedroom door
and painted from memory and photo-
graphs taken on trips west. That was
20 years ago.
Today, Greene and his family live in
an 1870s farmstead they painstakingly
restored. The Chisholm Trail is grown
over now, but the old houses and bams
still stand proudly in testimony of an-
other time — much like the cowboys,
horses, and landscapes Greene creates
Greene exhibited his work in a one-
man show at the Texas House of Rep-
resentatives. Today, he paints and
creates bronze sculptures at the Bosque
County Conservatory of Fine Art.
