The show includes the story of Bird's Oak Creek Tavern (where the Cowboy Artists were created). But it will also offer a special section of items featuring paintings and artwork by the organization's four, founding fathers. And as the museum's namesake, George Phippen, was a founding member of the CA's and their first president, a more appropriate time and place for this presentation would be hard to find.

Nathan not only continues to take classes, he has served as an instructor for The Corning Museum of Glass and Snowfarm-New England Craft. In 2002, he bought his family's farm in the White Mountains of New Hampshire where he can be found maintaining the 100-year-old farm and doing what he loves ... blowing glass.
