Equestrian Arts

23 SEPTEMBER 2017 | England.


The Society of Equestrian Arts is prepared to commemorate its 38th Annual Exhibition on the theme- Horse in Art 2017 from 23rd September to 7th October at Tuxford, Nottinghamshire, England. The Exhibition is hosted at Sally Mitchell Fine Arts Gallery, a quaint and marvelous 18th-century Posting Inn. The heritage award-winning museum historically served as a stable for the weary horse teams, mail coaches, and stagecoaches and contains the some of the most bizarre and historical elements of Britain’s Social history, some of them even dating back to 600 BCE.

With the purpose to accolade an ‘Art Oscar’, the SEA is featuring the some of the most original and feted Equestrian artists from across the globe. More than 100 artifacts are to be displayed including works in all mediums from paintings to Sculptures and by such famous SEA members as Malcolm Coward (HSEA), Rosemary Welch (SEA), Barry Peckam (HSEA), Glynis Mills (HSEA) and Debbie Dunbar SEA. In addition to this rainbow gathering of artists, several award shows including Hounds Magazine Best Hunting Portrayal, The British Sporting Arts Trust Best Sculpture, The Robert Fountain Award for Best Original Print and the most coveted Best in Show are also being organized. DenFord Stud will be sponsoring the events.

The exhibition promises a highly enriching experience by illustrating the inimitable array of creative arts and by providing all equestrians a common platform to engage in their pursuits of matchless aesthetics. As the part of SEA’s traditional gesture, the Cuneo Medal will be bestowed upon the most worthy and industrious member. All awards will be allocated at the SEA Private View from 2 pm onwards on Sunday 24th September.

The exhibition will start on 23rd September, daily from 10 am to 5 pm and will close on Saturday 7th October at 5 pm. The Official inauguration at the Private View on Sunday 24th will be done by Dr. Robert Fountain- One of the founders and erstwhile chairman of The British Sporting Art Trust (BSAT). In addition to that important dates for this fantastic exhibition include 21st August and 4th November which features “Anatomy for Artists Masterclass” with Gillian Higgins of Horses Inside Out and a Workshop “Drawing at the Mews – from head to hoof” with Jenifer Bell respectively. Equine Sculpture workshop with Priscilla Hann and Judy Boyt will be equally fascinating.
