Bill Nebeker is thrilled to be returning to Masters for his nineteenth year. Having his bronze sculptures displayed alongside many of the finest artists in the field of Western art is always a highlight.

In 2017 Nebeker was honored with the heART of the West Lifetime Achievement Award from Desert Caballeros Western Museum. In 2016 he received the James Bowie Sculpture Award at the Briscoe Museum’s Night of Artists, the Express Ranches Great American Cowboy Award at the Prix de West, and he was the subject of an article in Cowboys & Indians’ on-line magazine. His achievements in 2015 were two larger-than-life-sized commissions. The Briscoe Western Art Museum in San Antonio unveiled his bronze monument of a Texas Ranger, The Eyes of Texas, in its Jack Guenther Pavilion, and he was honored by the Marine Military Academy in Harlingen, Texas, when he unveiled a bust of their founder, Captain William Gary, who was a longtime friend and supporter, alongside Nebeker, of the Phippen Museum of Western Art.

In 2014 he was named Prescott Western Heritage Keeper for his many sculptures of historic personalities and events throughout the West. This honor adds to his past recognition by the Arizona Historical Society and the Buckey Lifetime Contribution to the Arts for his forty-five-year art career and his philanthropic and artistic contributions to the city of Prescott and the state of Arizona. He has sculpted several larger-than-life-size monumental bronzes throughout Arizona, Colorado, and Texas. In 2014 he was also featured in Western Art Collector.

Nebeker has been a member of Cowboy Artists of America for forty years. The Booth Western Art Museum, Bosque Arts Center, Briscoe Western Art Museum, Cheyenne Old West Museum, Desert Caballeros Museum, Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art, Museum of Western Art in Kerrville, Texas, National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, Palm Springs Art Museum, Pearce Museum at Navarro College, Rockwell Museum, Phippen Western Art Museum, and Phoenix Art Museum all have Nebeker’s bronze sculptures in their permanent collections.
