Territorial Sheriff
Artist: Bill Nebeker

Completed: 1990

This piece is fashioned after the fourteenth sheriff of Maricopa County, Samuel Seay Stout. The artist stated that he “created a man of strength and courage, who is relaxed but is aware of his dangerous surroundings. He is carrying a traditional side arm; the Colt .45 and a model 95 Winchester rifle.”

As a member of the Cowboy Artists of America since 1978, Bill Nebeker has won a 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. Mr. Nebeker lives and works in Arizona. His sculptures can be seen at Trailside Galleries in Scottsdale.
