The paintings of Loren Entz reflect many things: his love for beauty, simplicity, grace, and gentleness and a timeless, personal relationship between his subjects and their world. Whether he is doing a simple study of a young girl picking flowers or a cowboy warming a calf by a potbelly stove, his paintings capture the heart, soul, and beauty of his subjects and their environment.
Following high school, Entz received training through college courses and the Famous Artists School. Like many artists, he spent years in commercial art. He eventually moved to Montana in 1979.
A member of the Cowboy Artists of America (CAA) since 1992, Entz hopes his work depicts a fresh look at another dimension of the American West. Working primarily in oils, in his first four years as a member of the CAA he received three Gold Medals and four Silver Medals. He received the Robert Lougheed Memorial Award at the 2006 Prix de West Invitational Art Exhibition. At the 2011 CAA Exhibition, Entz won the Gold Medal for Painting, the Ray Swanson Memorial Award, and the much-coveted Stetson CAA Award for the best overall exhibition as voted on by the active CAA members. In 2014, he won the Prix de West Express Ranches Great American Cowboy Award.
