Tuesday, March 21, 2023 | 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. at Steamboat Art Museum.

Please join us for an evening of art and community with guest speaker Duke Beardsley.

Sixth generation Coloradan, Duke Beardsley has been drawing and painting the American West for as long as he can remember. Raised both in Denver, and on a 1,000 acre cattle ranch in eastern Colorado, Duke’s “duel/dual” upbringing is the foundation for his unique blend of traditional western iconography and contemporary art sensibilities.  An unapologetic fan of “all things cowboy,” Duke spends much time on horseback, joining his many friends and family on some of the greatest ranches of the West. Duke rides with crews to participate, observe and document todays working cowboys and cowgirls in their element. Formally trained at The Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Duke now lives and works with his wife and two daughters in Denver.

Duke’s work has seen its way into some notable private and corporate collections such as: Denver Art Museum / Booth Museum / Ritz Carlton / Forbes / UMB Banks /Whitney Collection.

Duke’s work is currently on display and available for purchase at SAM in our current exhibit, “The New West: The Rise of Contemporary Indigenous and Western Art”

Accompanied by the music of Michael and Dawn Moon.
