Fine Art Western Sculptor and Painter
“My intent is to capture the spirit, personality and emotion of my subject and hopefully make a connection with the viewer on some personal level,” Eisenach explains. “I paint and sculpt wild animals, cowboys and historic ways of life among American Indians.”
The artist works out of his own studio in Colorado in the foothills of Rocky Mountain National Park. Barry focuses primarily on historical western and wildlife art and sculpture, along with contemporary cowboy and ranch subjects. His portraits of trappers, mountain men, historical figures, cowboys, wildlife and American Indians portray the intelligence and emotion of his subjects.
Currently, Barry Eisenach was honored to be a participating artist in “The Story of Lewis and Clark” at the new Scottsdale Museum of the West through May 31, 2016. Barry’s sculpture is featured alongside other master sculptors such as Richard Greeves and Harry Jackson. The sculptors compliment 100 dynamic paintings by Charles Fritz chronicling the historic expedition of Captains Meriwether Lewis and William Clark.
Eisenach has won many awards, including Best in Show at Cheyenne Frontier Days Old West Museum Show; two gold medals for sculpture at the Bosque Conservatory Show in Clifton, Texas; Montana Historical Society Legacy Award; Silver Rose Award at the National Sculpture Society Annual Exhibition; and Awards of Merit and Heritage Awards from the Western Rendezvous of Art Show in Montana.
He is a member of the Northwest Rendezvous Group, which consists of several dozen people and began years ago as a collection of artists who got together for campouts. Now hotels and lodges have taken the place of camping as the members gather annually in Helena.
