I was thrilled to drop off two of my horse paintings that were judged into the WHAM Community Art Center’s National Equine Visions Art Show. I had submitted three pieces, two paintings and one photograph. The paintings made it into the show but the photograph didn’t.
“Winter Coat” acrylic painting by Maureen Kirk-Detberner. Painting features a palomino horse with blue sky background, featuring the horse looking over his back, photo taken by Maureen Kirk-Detberner of FastWinn Photography in January. This ranch horse has a furry winter coat.
My other painting that was juried into this art show is titled “Recess.” This is an oil painting of a gorgeous chestnut horse with a flaxen mane. I titled this painting “Recess” as the horse was resting in between trail rides. I love the lovely soft look in his eye. I wonder if he was thinking of grazing out in a summer green pasture as he waited in the dry lot corral.
The show is brilliant and features many large stunning art works. The styles ranged from modern to photo realism.
Opening Night Reception is August 4 from 5 – 7 pm.
The show runs from August 1 – August 31, 2017
The WHAM Gallery is located at 16560 N. Dysart Road, Surprise, AZ. Gallery is open Tuesday – Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm. http://www.wham-art.org/equine-visions.html.
After I dropped off my art I waved goodbye and sent wishes and good thoughts for their new owners. To view where you can see more of Maureen’s art go to the Events page.
