All of us here at the Best Western PLUS Inn of Sedona are excited about the National Day of the Cowboy Celebrations taking place in Sedona, Arizona this weekend on Saturday July 27th, 2013. In addition to live performances of gunfights, roping, bullwhip cracking, storytelling and historical re-enactments the Sedona Arts Center will offers artist demonstrations in their Fine Art Gallery in Uptown Sedona! If you are a guest of our Sedona Hotel don’t worry about finding parking in Uptown, we will drop you off in Uptown and pick you up in our Complimentary “About Town” Sedona Shuttle!
Multiple demonstrations will take place featuring artists:

You will also have the opportunity to enjoy the paintings and sculpture of renowned Cowboy Artist, Joe Beeler, CA (1931-2006). It was 1965 when artist Joe Beeler, along with fellow artists John Hampton, Charlie Dye and George Phippin, founded Cowboy Artists of America. His deep love for the Western tradition, combined with his artistic ability, has taken Beeler to the top of his profession. As both a painter and sculptor, Beeler excelled, and this rare dual talent was widely recognized and honored. Over the years he received numerous accolades including the Western Art Associates Best of Show Award, the prestigious Keickhefer Best of Show Award and numerous CAA Gold and Silver Medals. His work is displayed in the finest Western art museums and galleries throughout the nation and his name is a household work among Western art enthusiasts.
