Grant Redden

Grant Redden was born and raised in southwest Wyoming. Growing up on a sheep and cattle operation, he learned to love the life and lifestyle of the rural West. Horses were an integral part of his family’s operation including camp horses, pack strings in the summer, and work horses to pull camps and feed the livestock in heavy winters. Naturally, they are a major part of his art.

Primarily self-taught, he has had the opportunity to be mentored by many generous living masters and has studied the work of deceased masters such as Sorolla, Sargent, Zorn, Von Zugel, and many others.

Becoming a member of the Cowboy Artists of America was a great honor. The CAA has a rich tradition of creating art that celebrates the Western life authentically, at a quality level that requires dedication and commitment. Grant hopes he can measure up to the higher atmosphere that these artists work in. It is going to make him stretch and step up to a higher level, both as an artist and as a man. The culture in this group of artists is both demanding and nurturing. He is excited for the challenge. Already he is living up to the demands, winning two medals in 2013. He received a Gold Medal in Oil Painting and the Silver Medal for Water Solubles. In 2014, Grant added an additional Gold Medal in Oil Painting. In 2016, Grant won the Stetson Award and the Gold Medal in Oil Painting at the CAA show.
