Gwynn Murrill’s life meets art

Wondering about this year’s art raffle and t-shirt? When asked, “Why animals?” artist Gwynn Murrill told me, “Many of the animals I work with are also a part of our life here in the American West and I truly enjoy expressing my appreciation of their existence.”

This is especially true of the dog maquette featured in this year’s raffle. Koa, her real-life rescue dog was the model and definite inspiration for the piece. A regular fixture in the studio, Koa was kind enough to allow a short photo shoot so we could compare art to life.

Raffle tickets are $20 each and the commemorative t-shirt rings in at $25. (Both are available at the main event on Sunday, May 23.) To see more of Gwynn Murrill’s work, visit
