 J O E   B E E L E R    (d.)

Joe BeelerRaised in Oklahoma and Missouri, Joe Beeler received his BFA from Kansas State Teachers College and continued his studies at the Art Center School in Los Angeles. His professional career began in illustration at the University of Oklahoma Press. This gave him confidence to pursue an artist's career, and collectors were quick to acquire his paintings. The success of his one-man show at the Thomas Gilcrest Museum in 1960 established him on a course that would lead to national acclaim and a string of honors and awards.

Joe has won gold and silver honors in sculpture, silver in drawing and an Artists' Choice Award, all from the Cowboy Artists of America organization. In 1994, the Arizona Historic League named him an "Arizona History Maker"-an award presented to a very select group of Arizonans.

Joe Beeler passed away suddenly on April 26, 2006 doing what he loved best-working cattle with his favorite horse.  His legacy as a Western Artist and a genuine human being will live on.
