Equine Art Exhibits in PA

Coming to South Eastern Pennsylvania this summer are two fantastic exhibits featuring the horse in art.
At the Brandywine River Museum from June 7th to September 1st is an exhibit of the work of Sir Alfred Munnings.
Munning is one of the greatest horse painters to ever lay brush to canvas and I am so excited to see this show. His painterly style is something I would love to be able to reproduce. I love the way he captures a elegant lady on a fine Thoroughbred horse.

The second exhibit(July 12 – September 7) is at the Reading Public Museum. This show will cover the horse in art over a span of 3,000 years from ancient Greek vases to a contemporary sculpture by Deborah Butterfield.
On August 9th they are having a family day that will be free to the public with equine art experts, pony rides and more.

So, if you're a lover of horse art you should definately consider a trip my way this summer. Wild horses couldn't keep me away:)
