MaryAnnCherryMotherlyLoveOil22x22Motherly Love by Mary Ann CherryThe close relationship between horses and humans has dramatically changed both species over time. People have bred horses in an effort to make them faster, stronger, bigger of smaller. But  horses have also changed humans. The ways we travel, trade, play, work and fight wars have all been profoundly shaped by our use of horses. In fact, this majestic animal has arguably had a greater impact on the evolution of human civilization than any other. And their powerful influence on mankind is just oneo of the many reasons we offer the 4th annual presentation of this very special invitational exhibition and sale.

RisenShineRise 'n Shine by Tim SchmidtNothing seems to capture our attention more immediately than children and small animals. Just ask any successful advertiser. Tiny body features with large eyes and big heads just seem to have a special place in our heart and captivate our interest in a way that is unlike any other subject matter. So when you explore this upcoming presentation, be prepared for many smiles and numerous “Aww’s”. Presented in the James Gallery, this exhibit is comprised of artwork from the museum’s Permanent Collection and pieces on loan from generous individual collectors.
