Herb Mignery

Herb Mignery

Born to a hundred-year Nebraska ranching heritage, it was assumed Herb Mignery would be a cowboy, but his love of art led him to illustration, both in the army and later in commercial art.  In 1973, he cast his first bronze and from that time devoted himself primarily to sculpture. 

With bronze as his primary medium, he expresses his fascination "with the fluid movement of horse and rider, forming the basis for his strength in sculpting motion”.  Herb’s subjects are often traditional western figures, but also include the more subtle characters of the old and contemporary West: shepherds, settlers and school teachers.  His subjects depict the often difficult lives led by people in the West.

His commissions are many and vary in size from the ten-inch “Pioneer Award,” presented by the Academy of Country Music, to a twenty-foot sculpture for the Hashknife Pony Express in Scottsdale, Arizona. Other public monuments are located in Nebraska, Missouri, Hawaii, Colorado, New York, California, Wyoming, New Mexico, Texas and South Dakota.

He has been a member of the Cowboy Artists of America since 1984, now an Emeritus Member and a past president.   Herb is a Fellow of the National Sculpture Society and in the Nebraska Sandhills Cowboy Hall of Fame. He is also a founding member of the Cowboy Cartoonist International.  He has received numerous awards from these organizations and others.

Herb now lives and works in Colorado.
