Bill Owen passed away suddenly on June 15th at the Diamond A Ranch near Seligman, Arizona.
The award-winning painter and sculptor’s international reputation was based on his first-hand knowledge and accurate portrayal of the contemporary Arizona ranch cowboy and his horses, cattle and country.
A member of the Cowboy Artists of America since 1973, Owen served three terms as the prestigious group’s president.
Bill Owen will also be remembered for founding the Arizona Cowpunchers’ Scholarship Fund, which helped many young people
from Arizona ranch families attend college or university.
The TCAA members will treasure Bill’s friendship and his dedication to painting the real American West.
