World Horse Welfare launches Year of the Horse competition for young and old.
To celebrate the Year of the Horse, World Horse Welfare has launched an exciting competition encompassing creative abilities from children and adults.
There are three separate categories – colouring, poetry, and drawing & painting – in which amateurs and professionals alike are invited to draw, paint or write poetry on anything they fancy as long as it celebrates horses.
The winner of each category will have their work published in World Horse Welfare News, as well as the charity’s website and social media channels.
For poets, painters and drawers the competition is open to adults (17 and over) and children (16 and under).
Entitled “HORSEPOWER”, the show will include new artworks by some of our most talented artists working in the South East today.
From 1- 17 November 2013, Wing Gallery on the High Street in Wadhurst, East Sussex presents an exhibition that will be of intense interest to all horse lovers.
Gallery owner, Gavin Roweth explains: “We have run themed exhibitions before but the idea of having a show celebrating ‘the horse in art’ really appealed to me. So we commissioned some of the best artists we work with and selected a few more who already have a reputation for their work in this genre. The result is an extraordinary diverse range of paintings, sculpture, ceramics and photography which I hope our audience will enjoy.”
Curator of the exhibition, Kay Jones adds: “The icing on the cake is the Stevenson Brothers agreeing to exhibit their exquisite, hand-carved rocking horses in the show. They have delivered their masterpieces to HM Queen at Windsor Castle and built a hand-crafted carousel for the Sultan of Brunei, not to mention a new rocking horse for William and Kate’s baby George. The design, craftsmanship and beauty of these pieces make them truly collectable works of art.”
The show runs from 1-17 November and the gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm.
Wing invites all readers of Localrider to a Special Saturday on the 9th November, from 11am to 5pm where you can view all the artwork, meet the artists and perhaps enjoy a glass of wine or two.
