Artist Demo | Michael Dudash – Session 1 – SOLD OUT

In honor of the Cowboy Artists of America’s annual exhibition, join us for an artist demonstration from CAA member Michael Dudash.

Michael Dudash

Born and raised in Mankato, Minnesota, Michael Dudash’s first passion in life was art, followed by an interest in music. In 1977 he opened his first studio and began his full-time career as a freelance artist and oil painter. Over the next 25 years, he developed a highly successful career and national reputation in the field of illustration. His paintings and drawings became highly sought after by publishers, clients and corporations, and he became a featured guest lecturer and instructor at a large number of art schools, institutions and museums. In 2002 he left his illustration work behind and became a full-time painter in the fine art world.


Although he has always been equally adept at masterfully handling landscapes, figures, portraits and still lifes, Michael quickly found that painting the characters and history of the Old West especially excited him and for the last 12 years this has been his singular focus.
