EQUINE BEAUTY, paintings and drawings of Horses and Riders

ALECIA UNDERHILL: "Palomino", oil on canvas

Opening day of our EQUINE BEAUTY exhibit saw over one hundred local horse--and art---lovers crowd into the gallery. Our usual two rooms became three, with the addition of "Room 3" on the second floor to accomodate for the huge number of pieces. For the opening, we also pitched the outdoor tent to try to cast a little more shade during the blistering heat (it wasn't much help!).
JACK MURRAY: Sketch, pen and ink on paper

At 5pm sharp, we introduced an informal reading of several of JACK MURRAY's poems, shared by the voices of James Turner and MaryClaire Wellinger. For the first time, in conjunction with this show, we've designed and published a keepsake book of MURRAY's poems, action drawings, and vintage photographs ($25, for sale in the gallery).
JOHN FLYNN: "Hunt Scene", oil on linen

We are also happy to report that the show had fantastic sales! The public reaction has been wonderful so far, and we can't wait to meet more horse and art lovers to prepare for a future show of the same theme.
Not a DAY goes by thatwe don't meet a new visitor or a new artist!
ANNA HALEY: "White Mare", giclée print on canvas
