This fine art display pays homage to the on going spirit of the horse and the 43 horses that tragically left this world in January 2016. A horrific barn fire destroyed the Classy Lane Stables in Ontario, leaving the owners and trainers of the stables devastated with their losses. Out of this sad event, unfolds the beginnings of an art idea, an exhibition that would honour the spirit of the beloved horse.
43 horse themed contemporary artworks will include paintings, drawings, mixed media, photography, and sculptures. Artists taking part in the exhibit are a diverse group, ranging from seasoned to developing talent, local and Canadian artists.
