“Ropes and Reins, Joy and Pain”

While circumstances still keep us from having our much loved Carbondale Wild West Rodeo, you can view the action of past rodeos as captured by the revered George Hendrix. The Launchpad in Carbondale is featuring a collection of George’s rodeo images July 17-August 30th.

The Launchpad is open to a limited number of visitors weekdays from 10am-5pm and til 7 pm on Fridays. Artwork is available to view and purchase online.

You can view more of George’s work at and on George’s personal page:
