McEwen Bronze Sculpture
Neal McEwen's professional career as a bronze sculptor began in 1992 following 25 years in the business world. His love of the Old West and Native American culture, however, began with his early childhood in Montana. As an adult, living first in New Mexico, then Arizona, his immersion in Western heritage deepened and is now expressed in his art.

McEwen Bronze Artwork
A skilled equestrian, stable manager and farrier, McEwen's appreciation of horses is evident in his work as shown in the bronze horse and rider, Reverie. His homage to the Old West and Native Americans continues in Horse Soldier, Shawl Dancer, Sentinel, Native Dancer, Cling Peaches and Test of Wills sculptures.
Lost-Wax Bronze Medium
McEwen uses the lost-wax technique for bronze sculpture which dates back to ancient times when the Greeks and Chinese perfected the method. Along with the delicate artistic process of crafting the initial sculpture is the labor-intensive process of turning that creation into the final bronze sculpture. The lost-wax bronze process was captured in photographs during the development of McEwen's larger-than-life bronze statue of Willis Whitfield.
