This weekend was more equestrian-oriented than usual…
Saturday marked the 82nd Annual Carolina Cup- an elite race in which the Lily Pulitzer fashion overload and “college park” tailgating often overshadow the actual horses. Friday night’s event however, was all about celebrating the majestic animals. Mitchell Hill Gallery hosted an opening reception for the ever-popular works of Karen Keene Day. Spending half of the year in Colorado, Karen’s artistic inspiration is derived from wild horses that she spends time with at nearby reservation. Her fluid strokes and modern style create striking masterpieces. Hearing Karen speak to each different horse she paints as an individual character with unique personality brings even more meaning and significance into her paintings. As if there weren’t enough reasons to fall in love with them already.
The show has been a success, with four selling thus far ! Karen donates 3% of every sale to the National Mustang Association, which goes towards preserving these beautiful creatures and their home.
A guest enjoying Karen’s work:
Majesty will hang for the next few weeks, so stop in and see these beauties in person!
