Artwalk with Karyn Dunbar
Friday, October 5th, 5 – 9pm Reception – Free!
Returning to my favorite environment at Barjons Books and more is always a wonderful homecoming for my crows and ravens.. This year I will be bringing more prints. Now more than ever we need images that comfort and inspire to keep our spirits lifted. I will be bringing highly affordable, visual prayers designed for small intimate spaces, as well as some larger works.
A chance encounter with an Arapaho elder some two decades ago introduced me to my artistic spirit guides. Since then my studio gallery in Shell, Wyoming has been home to scores of my images of ravens and buffalo.
After retiring from 40 years of teaching art in public schools and privately, I have devoted my full artistic energy to the many faces of these mythic birds, bison, and images that are echoes of my Celtic heritage.
Nature is a great teacher and can act as a mirror for human behavior. The creatures and mythology inform my artistic message.
My art is in collections in much of the United States and several other countries. Some years ago I was fortunate to have an exhibit of my work in Athens, Greece. One of my works was presented by the President of Ireland to the Granuaille Museum in Louisburg on that country’s west coast. International adventures are great but I am most happy near the Big Horn mountains at home in Wyoming where I hope to keep creating for many years to come.
