Earl Kuhn’s watercolors depict our great ranching heritage, a story about a way of life. His favorite subjects are the cowboy, his livestock and the landscapes surrounding them. Kuhn’s studio is in the heart of the Gypsum Hills, called the Sagebrush Gallery of Western Art located in Medicine Lodge, Kansas. He and his wife, Kaye, have owned and operated the gallery since 1979.
Kuhn is a Director of the Working Ranch Cowboys Association. He has been the Event Director for the World Championship Ranch Rodeo since 1995. Kuhn and his wife, Kaye, hosted the Indian Summer Days Professional Western Art Show for 12 years every fall in Medicine Lodge, bringing artists from throughout the United States. Now held on a smaller scale, during the Medicine Lodge Indian Peace Treaty Celebration.
The Kuhn’s three sons and his grandchildren have provided a lot of subject matter as ranch cowboys.
