Zach Chapman

Western Art Show Featured Artist

Cover artist for the 2023 Brush Rodeo Program is Zach Chapman of Otis, Colorado. Chapman’s “Colt” was chosen as People’s Choice at the 2022 CACE Western Art Show. The image is also featured on this year’s Brush Rodeo Poster and other promotional material.

Chapman’s website highlights his deep appreciation for rural life. Quoting Zach, “The main source of inspiration in my photography comes from God’s beautiful creation and watching my preschool children enjoy the simple things in everyday life. Each day while teaching I get to watch my students enjoy every little thing they discover in and outside of the classroom. If you sit back and view the world through the lens of a child, you notice the world is pretty amazing. The best part of my photography is the adventure of everyday life that catches my eye and lens. The goal of my photography is to teach and inspire others, young and old, to go out and find the beauty this world has to offer. In capturing these moments, I leave a story and legacy behind that will touch and inspire others to enjoy the beauty and journey all around us.”
