Want to meet an accomplished actor?

It’s easy to do at the Fort Worth Stock Show Rodeo.

Throughout the day, Stock Show patrons can shake hands with Buck Taylor in his booth on the east side of the Amon G. Carter Exhibit Hall. They also can view his Western artwork.

As an actor, Taylor is best known for his role as gunsmith-turned-deputy Newly O’Brien in 174 episodes during the last eight seasons of CBS’s “Gunsmoke” television series (1967–1975).

But he’s also a very talented painter. Some of Taylor’s prints reflect Fort Worth Stock show Rodeo themes.

“I have two jobs,” Taylor said. “I love them both. I love making movies and I love painting. In movies, you create the character of a person. In paintings, you create characters. Both have a creative side. One you do on paper. The other you do on film.”

Taylor, 78, said he’s very passionate about painting.

“It’s a passion that I love,” he said. “It keeps our western heritage alive. What better place to do that than Fort Worth Texas?”

Taylor lives on a ranch in the Fort Worth area.

“I love Fort Worth,” Taylor said. “It’s my favorite city. It’s still Cowtown and it’s getting bigger and better every year.”
