I have been revisiting my Art Horses Australia images. At that time I was working for a local paper and they sent me along to take some pictures, with my own camera. Normally you cannot take pics inside the gallery so I was very privileged. I have tried to find the Art Horses Australia site but it seems to have disappeared, and I have no record of which artist painted which horse(s). There were a lot more than the 7 we had locally, as I have found pictures of other ones from galleries in Wagga Wagga and Victoria in my web searches.
This exhibition was held in conjunction with Art Horses Australia at the Tweed River Art Gallery from 11 October – 18 November 2007 and presented a display of seven life size horses, each uniquely designed and painted by well known Australia Artists.
In conjunction with Art Horses Australia seven life size horses, each uniquely designed and painted by well known Australian artists, were made available. It was a memorable spectacle which combined elements of street theatre and public art. Exhibition Curator, Jacqueline Taylor OAM says “The familiar form of the horse combined with spectacular and inventive imagery surprises and delights viewers of all ages.”
