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.
Some of Earl’s accomplishments include one of his paintings being featured on the cover of the 2002 Fall issue of Cowboy Magazine, and the November 2002 issue of America’s Horse, published by the American Quarter Horse Association. Kuhn’s watercolors were chosen as the “Best of Show” at the World Championship Ranch Rodeo’s “Best of the West” Western Art Show in 2001.
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.
