A local artist is hosting a show beginning Friday that will feature the majestic wild Mustang horse, and raise funds for a rescue operation geared toward the breed.  Eric Stauffer is the owner of Dark Horse Art Works, which is presenting the fundraiser for the Legendary Mustang Sanctuary. 

He says the hope is to get these artists more exposure.  Kathy Lewis and her husband Shawn run the sanctuary in Alhambra, and says one of the more interesting pieces of art includes horse hair.
