Since childhood, photographer Charles King has been captivated by the passion and perseverance of the pioneers and cowboys of the Old West. He believes that fierce determination lives on in Arizona’s high school cowgirls — the subject of his exhibition on display at Art Intersection through Saturday, June 21.

“I chose to focus on the Cowgirls because of their visible love and respect for the traditions of the rodeo. The Cowgirls epitomize the values that represent the foundation of the American West, ideals fading from today’s culture,” King says on his website.

The exhibit was originally scheduled to close on May 30 but was extended through June 21, giving those who’ve yet to see the dramatic photos a chance to find inspiration in the next generation of Arizona cowgirls.

DETAILS >> On display 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday, June 19, Friday, June 20, and Saturday, June 21. Art Intersection, 207 N. Gilbert Road, Suite 201, Gilbert. Free. (480) 361-1118 or ArtIntersection.com.
