Looking at a Bill Nebeker sculpture gives one an honest and authentic portrayal of the historic American West or contemporary ranch life. Quiet tributes, subtle humor and wry observations underlie Nebeker’s work. His knack for weaving an unobtrusive storyline into a sculpture challenges the unsuspecting viewer, “Oh! Now I get it!” That moment of discovery is at the heart of experiencing and appreciating Bill’s bronzes.

Inspired to begin sculpting in 1964 when he went to an art show by George Phippen, the first President of the Cowboy Artists of America, Bill became a member of the Cowboy Artists of America in 1978. Since then Bill has won Gold and Silver in sculpture, Best of Show and the Phoenix Art Museum Purchase Award, as well as being twice elected President by his fellow artists. His extraordinary talent has been recognized by several cities in Arizona by awarding him several important, larger than life-sized statue commissions, to depict their historic or current honorable citizens. Prescott has his four figure monument “Early Prescott Settlers”, Glendale enjoys his “Territorial Sheriff”, and Phoenix is honored by his “Memorial to Fallen Officers” at the Arizona Department of Public Safety Headquarters. In June of 2006 the Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo in Colorado Spring, Colorado unvieled a portrait statue of Robert C. Norris in front of the new Norris/Penrose Events Center. In 2009 Nebeker was honored by the Arizona Historical Society and Marshall Trimble, Arizona’s State Historian, with the Arizona Culturekeeper Award, for his outstanding contributions to the history, art, civic leadership, and entrepeneurial spirit, because of his bronze sculptures enriching several Arizona cities.

Raised in Prescott, Arizona since early boyhood, his heart is with ranchers, and outdoorsmen of all cultures past and present. His childhood hobby of whittling horses, dogs, other animals and toys developed without formal instruction into the God given talent he shares today with admirers all over the world.

Nebeker is a participating artist in the Cowboy Artists of America Show & Sale, as well as the Prix de West Invitational Show & Sale at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, OK; the Autry Museum’s Masters of the American West in Los Angeles, CA; Quest for the West Art Show at the Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis, IN; at the Phippen Museum Western Art Show in Prescott, AZ and the Cheyenne Frontier Days Western Art Show at the Old West Museum.

In the 40 years of his strong and prestigious career, Bill has had stories about his life and work featured in Arizona Highways, Art of the West, Southwest Art, Cowboys and Indians, Western Art Collector, Western Horseman, Horse and Rider, Phoenix Home and Garden and Persimmon Hill.

His work is in the collections of the Eiteljorg Museum, National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, Old West Museum in Cheyenne, Booth Western Art Museum, Museum of Western Art in Kerrville, Phoenix Art Museum, Phippen Museum in Prescott, Palm Spring Desert Museum and Desert Caballeros Museum in Wickenburg. well as many of the prestigious corporate and personal collections around America.

Broadmoor Galleries in Colorado Springs is proud to present “Moore Art: A Family Affair,” an exhibition that showcases the unique artistic styles of American impressionist artist Robert Moore, and his two children, Anna, and Robbie Moore. Robert, who is colorblind and paints with both hands simultaneously, has established himself as a prominent figure in the art world, and his children have followed in his footsteps.

Robert Moore, a celebrated American painter who is colorblind and paints with both hands simultaneously, is known for his signature landscapes, cityscapes, and portraits. The exhibition will showcase a range of Moore’s works alongside those of his talented children.

“Moore Art: A Family Affair” is a unique opportunity to experience the work of three incredibly talented artists from the same family,” said Broadmoor Galleries director, Jamie Oberloh. “Robert Moore’s impressionistic style is a true representation of the beauty and diversity of America, and his children Anna and Robbie are following in his footsteps with their own unique styles and techniques.”

Robert Moore’s artistic achievements are all the more remarkable given that he is colorblind. Despite this, he has become known for his ability to create vivid and striking color palettes in his paintings. He has also developed a unique technique of painting with both hands simultaneously, which allows him to create intricate details and textures in his works.

Moore’s use of both hands to paint has been compared to the way a pianist uses both hands to play a complex piece of music. This technique requires a great deal of focus and coordination, and it has become one of Moore’s signature methods.

Moore’s colorblindness has also influenced his work in other ways. He has said that he is drawn to painting landscapes because he is able to see the world in shades of green, which he can differentiate more easily than other colors. This has led him to develop a deep appreciation for the beauty of nature and the environment.

Despite his colorblindness and unique painting technique, Robert Moore has become one of America’s most beloved impressionist painters. His works continue to inspire and captivate viewers, and his contributions to American art are truly remarkable.

Anna Moore, a professional artist in her own right, draws inspiration from her father’s work and her surroundings, using her skillful brushstrokes to capture the essence of nature in her landscapes. She works in a variety of media, including oil painting, watercolor, and printmaking. Her work is inspired by the natural beauty of the American West and the people and places that inhabit it.  

Robbie Moore, who recently graduated with a Finance degree from the University of Arkansas, has always had a passion for art and the natural world. He has developed his skills in drawing, gouache, watercolor, and oil painting, and his work has been featured in a company calendar commissioned by his employer. With his father’s legacy of developing artists and a lineage of artists in his family, Robbie’s future aspiration is to make the most out of his upbringing and create a name for himself in the art world.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase the work of three incredibly talented artists,” said Broadmoor Galleries’ director, Jamie Oberloh. “The combination of Robert’s impressionistic paintings with Anna and Robbie’s unique styles and mediums creates a truly exceptional exhibition that will delight and inspire our visitors. Their paintings are a true representation of the beauty and diversity of America, and we are honored to share the work with our community.”

The exhibition will be open to the public from May 18th, 2023, through June 8th, 2023, and will feature a special reception on May 18th, 2023, from 4-8 pm, where visitors can meet the artists and enjoy light refreshments. All works in the exhibition will be available for sale.
