Joe Beeler - Life of a Cowboy Artist

A book about Joe Beeler's art is naturally a book about his life. Don Hedgpeth, a friend of Joe's for over 40 years, tells the story of Joe's heritage, his early determination to make art both livelihood and lifework, and his fabled invention - with Charlie Dye, John Hampton, George Phippen and Bob McCloud - of the Cowboy Artists of American at a tavern in Sedona, Arizona, in 1964. One hundred and twenty-five amply sized and richly reproduced photographs of Joe's sculpture, painting and drawings tell the story of his development as an internationally respected and enthusiastically collected artist. Life of a Cowboy artist is a must-read for anyone who appreciates Western art and the enduring legacy of the cowboy. Joe Beeler's work is a testament to the power of art to capture the essence of a time and place, and this book is a fitting tribute to his remarkable talent and legacy.
