The exhibition, showcasing the works of some of the UK’s most renowned equestrian artists, will feature a broad spectrum of styles from classical to contemporary across a wide range of media.
Capturing the power and grace of horses, from the excitement and drama of racing to the gentle peace of a pony at rest, the artists draw on their personal experiences to explore many areas of equestrian life and the relationship between human and horse.
The artworks will be submitted by equestrian artists from around the UK, and all works will be for sale. A catalogue of the work will also be available to view online ahead of the exhibition.
Jane Braithwaite SEA, Chair of the Society, who lives and works in the local area, comments:
‘After a difficult time for Art Societies, we are delighted to be going from strength to strength. The Garden Rooms at Tennants is a perfect venue for us, being a hub for arts and culture in the Yorkshire Dales on the outskirts of the town of Leyburn and near to the racehorse training centre of Middleham.’
Whether you are a seasoned collector or a first-time visitor to an art exhibition, this event promises to be a fascinating experience and an opportunity to enjoy a wonderful array of equestrian art.
