Howard Terpning is one of the most lauded painters of Western
art. His awards are so numerous and he is honored with them so often, that to list them would require changing the count every few months. To name three
would be to cite the highest prizes awarded to Western art: countless awards from the Cowboy Artists of America, the Hubbard Art Award for Excellence, the
National Academy of Western Art's Prix de West and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Gene Autry Museum.
Terpning is a long-time member of the Cowboy Artists of America, which has presented him with Gold and Silver awards, "Best of Show" awards, and "Best Overall Show by a Single Artist" awards more than two dozen times.
