John Coleman

“I continue to grow more excited about the medium of painting and the discovery of how laying the paint on a canvas heightens my understanding of form and I believe makes me a better sculptor.” 

Found in private and permanent collections of museums and corporations around the world, John’s work has earned him many awards in the most revered shows.  “I am very proud to have received the James Earle Fraser Sculpture award and the Cole’s Buyers’ Choice Award for my monumental sculpture, “Honeymoon at Crow Fair” at Prix de West.  I’m equally proud that the NCWHM has purchased this piece for their permanent collection.”   John also received a gold medal, two Silver medals and the Ray Swanson Memorial Award at the Cowboy Artists of America 50th Anniversary sale and exhibition.

Highly regarded as a teacher, John freely shares his insights and techniques during his sold out workshops.  Dividing his time between sculpting and painting, John remains the consummate student himself – always reaching for new knowledge and techniques that will translate into his best work ever.
