The saddlemaking artistry of Bill Maloy was included in several of the Western Folklife Center gearmaker exhibitions over the years, and we were honored to present Bill with 1st place in the 1997 flower carving competition for our Saddle Up! A Renaissance in Leather exhibition.  His panel may still be viewed in our online exhibition, Back at the Ranch: An Artful Life.
