Dudes. That’s what cow wranglers call fancied-up men. At least they used to in the old versions of “Rawhide.” Now it’s hard to find a cowboy or cowgirl that doesn’t wear a huge sterling silver or gold overlay belt buckle bedecked with turquoise, pearl or other precious stones.

Now showing at the Lyons Weir Ortt Contemporary Art Gallery is “Buckle: The Art and Craft of the Western Belt Buckle.” It contains some of the finest buckles that could be rounded up. Yee-haw.
