NEW OPENING DATE: Sept. 17, 2016 — May 31, 2017 

Images of American Indians infused with the history and mythology of the American West have made John Coleman one of the nation’s most highly regarded contemporary artists. This exhibition, made possible by Scottsdale residents Frankie and Howard Alper, provides an unparalleled opportunity to examine the career of this pioneering painter, sculptor and influential teacher. It includes creations in charcoal, graphite, oil and bronze, plus some works in progress. Coleman is an award-winning member of the Cowboy Artists of America, a Fellow Member of the National Sculpture Society and a Signature Member of the California Art Club.
