Equine-inspired artwork, The Exuberant Equines, will be on display at the Gallery in the Park at Ward Pound Ridge Reservation in Cross River beginning Sunday, Sept. 17, with the Opening Reception the same day, from noon to 3 p.m., which will feature live music, and refreshments will be available.
The exhibit includes paintings and photographs by artists who were inspired by their encounters with America’s horses, which showcase their love and admiration of equines. The exhibit will be on view daily through Monday, Oct. 9.
Westchester County Executive George Latimer said, “The Westchester County Department of Parks, Recreation and Conservation allows residents to do more than run, hike and play; viewing artwork, particularly of nature, is one of the many incredible amenities the department offers.”
Commissioner of the Westchester County Department of Parks, Recreation and Conservation, Kathy O’Connor said, “Ward Pound Ridge is the largest park in the Westchester County Parks system. I’m thrilled that on top of its gorgeous grounds, it offers visitors the chance to view beautiful artwork.”
Admission is free; parking fees are in effect weekends only: $5 with Park Pass, $10 without Park Pass.
