Zach Ross of Cody, WY, studying art at Whitworth University, Spokane, WA is 2019 winner of Gilly Fales.
SERVING ITS MISSION TO ENCOURAGE AND CELEBRATE WYOMING’S NEXT GENERATION OF ARTISTS,
THE GILLY FALES SCHOLARSHIP IS OFFERED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE BUFFALO BILL ART SHOW & SALE
Every year, the Gilly Fales Fine Art Award provides a $500 award to a Wyoming artist between eighteen and thirty. Additionally, these
individuals have the exciting opportunity to display and sell their art during the Buffalo Bill Art Show & Sale. The award was established by
the Fales family to honor their daughter Gilly who embraced every creative opportunity in Cody during her eighteen years of life.
The family states, “Wyoming’s next generation of artists should be encouraged and celebrated, and we are grateful to the Buffalo Bill Art
Show & Sale for allowing the Gilly Fales Fine Art Award winners to be included in the annual show. It is an honor to Gilly’s life and passion
that her name and spirit live on in this award.”
