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.
