Biography continued....

At eighteen, Tim was the youngest artist ever to show at Trailside Galleries, and he has continued to set records ever since. Cox is a regular exhibitor at the Governor's Invitational Show at Cheyenne Frontier Days where he has been a three-time winner of the Museum Purchase Award and a two-time winner of their Print Award. He was the featured artist for Cattleman's Western Art Show in San Luis Obispo, California. Three years in a row, he has won the Olaf Wieghorst Best of Show Award at the Mountain Oyster Show in Tucson, Arizona. Tim was nominated in the fine arts category for the Academy of Western Artists' Will Rogers Cowboy Award in 1996 and 1997, and won the award in 2001. He has appeared nine times at the renowned Prix de West Show in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. He won the coveted Prix de West Purchase Award in June 2003 and the Express Ranches Great American Cowboy Award in June 2004, and again in 2007, when he won the Good Horse and Wide Open Spaces. Most recently Tim has become a member of the prestigious Cowboy Artists of America!

While most of his time is consumed by painting, Tim continues to raise cattle and train his horses. He also finds the time to coach young riders who compete in cutting competitions and other competitive horse events. Tim combines the basic ingredients of color, value, perspective and pleasing design with his desire to be a perfectionist in portraying the real working cowboy. This attention to exactness is appreciated by most ranchers and cowboys as well as the recreation horse owners around the world.

In 2003, Tim Cox was honored with one of the most prestigious awards in the world of western art at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, when the National Academy of Western Art chose his painting for the coveted Prix de West Purchase Award which includes a $5,000 cash award plus a gold medal. Cox's "On to Better Pastures" was the judge's favorite of the over 300 works of art at the 2003 Prix de West Show which featured the works of ninety two highly acclaimed artists. His painting “Along Eagle Creek” was selected as the 2004 winner of the Express Ranches Great American Cowboy Award.
