The American Academy of Equine Art in Georgetown, Kentucky is the premier organization for equine art in America. It was established in 1980 by a group of ten distinguished artists, individually famed for their work on equine subjects. Their aim was to maintain a degree of excellence within the genre, and to promote the academic representation of the equine form in drawing, painting and sculpture. Loosely based on the Royal Academy of Arts in London, the AAEA serves to educate and encourage a broad awareness and appreciation of contemporary equine art as a specific and distinctively worthy segment of fine art in America.
I am proud to be a juried member of this organization.
The Virginia Equine Artists Association is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a wide audience for our artists work and a creative environment where they have many learning opportunities to enhance their skills. I am happy to have been a board member for several years. This is a great group of artists who also love horses. We plan many events, classes, shows and photo trips and have a great time.
