Saturday, August 4th - Sunday, September 23rd, 2018
Horse lovers, art enthusiasts and Western art collectors alike were all enthralled with our popular, annual exhibition and sale, Hold Your Horses! In tribute to the horse, that powerful, loyal and hardworking companion of all mankind, and in the same tradition as classic Western artists of the past, the public joined us as we presented this very special invitational exhibition and sale offering artwork focused entirely on the horse.

More than 30 participating artists were specifically chosen for this exhibition because of their 'horse sense' and outstanding ability to create Art of the Horse. And each payed heartfelt tribute to man's longtime companion in an exhibit that offered more than 100 amazing pieces of equine art for sale and covering a wide range of mediums; from bronze and graphite, to oil, pastel and watercolors. A special opening reception was held  and unique art and heritage programming and demonstrations were presented to enhance this very popular exhibition and sale celebrating the beauty and majesty of the horse.

This year's PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARD WINNER was talented western artist, Marlin Rotach, for his watercolor, Cow Pony. Congratulations, Marlin! Along with the prestige this recognition brings, he will also be the featured artist in next year's 6th annual presentation of our Hold Your Horses! Invitiational Exhibition & Sale.
