The District Gallery presents: Equine Spirit September 4-29, 2012 Artist Reception: Friday, Sept. 14, 5:30-9 p.m. “And God took a handful of southerly wind, blew his breath over it, and created the horse.” ~ Bedouin Legend The District Gallery is pleased to present Equine Spirit, a collection of horse-inspired fine art and craft. The exhibit seeks to convey the essence of the horse through various media and includes the work of established gallery artists and introduces new artists to the gallery. Current gallery artists were called to step beyond their comfort zone while embracing the equine theme. Artists who rose to this challenge include Donna Conliffe, Gary Dagnan, Ruth Koh, Jane Schmidt and others. Additionally, we are thrilled to introduce the work of veteran equine artists Dan Addington, Nan Jacobsohn, Mase Lucas and Rachael McCampbell. A portion of the show proceeds will benefit Horse Haven of Tennessee, a nonprofit rescue operation for abused and neglected equine. For more information about Horse Haven of Tennessee, please visit their website at www.horsehaventn.org. Equine Spirit will run September 4-29, with an artist reception Friday, Sept. 14 from 5:30-9 p.m. The reception will feature live music by the Dirty Dougs.
