Guy Coheleach has a gift for painting wildlife that is matched only by his thirst for adventure. A fellow of the prestigious Explorers Club and the youngest member ever admitted to the Adventurers Club of New York, Coheleach has fled advancing elephants, raced open-cockpit autos, and tracked eagles, lions and rhinos all over the world. Coheleach is an adventurer who loves to paint.
Born in New York City, Coheleach graduated from the Cooper Union and later received an honorary doctorate from the College of William and Mary in Virginia. Coheleach's work has been exhibited in more than 100 one-man shows as well as at the White House and the National Collection of Fine Art in Washington, D.C.
Coheleach is the subject of two films, Guy Coheleach and the Bald Eagle and Quest: An Artist and His Prey. A number of books of his work have been published, including Masters of the Wild: Guy Coheleach by Terry Wieland (Briar Patch Press, 1990).
Coheleach has made numerous donations to worthy causes. His endowment at the University of Tennessee provides several scholarships in the school of wildlife management. Coheleach is very serious about giving something back to a way of life that has done so much for him.
