Jay Contway (1935 - 2019)  Artworks >>

Jay Contway is a native Montanan, who has spent a life-time creating western sculpture which captures the life he knows. Jay spent time on the rodeo circuit, and his knowledge and respect for the working cowboy shows clearly in his art. Appreciation for the history, his own native ancestry and the people and animals of the West is clearly illustrated in his sculpture. Jay's preoccupation with his art includes a foundry which enables him to oversee all the details of each bronze he creates. The foundry, located just a few yards from his studio, is the site of all castings of any Jay Contway sculpture. No original models are sold and all are cast in only bronze or silver. All bronzes are limited in the number cast. Jay's work is seldom found in galleries. He prefers to market his own work through art shows in the western United States and Canada. He was commissioned by the Latigo Corporation to do the only authorized bronze commemorating the Great Montana Centennial Cattle Drive. Source askart.com
