High Plains Avenger, Bronze Sculpture
Design Plus Gallery presents “High Plains Avenger”by J. Shirly Bothum. Known for exquisite attention to details, his works were inspired by the West. This moment was captured in bronze, a rescue at full gallop.
While living in the Lewis and Clark valley Shirly began to seriously pursue his art career. The artist lived in the cowboy tradition he admired, and turned his talents to preserving his western heritage in bronze.
“A cowboy, rancher and member of the Rodeo Cowboy Association, Shirly Bothum, born July 30, 1937, began sculpting in bronze in the early 1970s. His subjects are rodeo animals and figures, and he was a resident of Clarkston, Washington until his death January 20, 2003”
