Strength & Grace
A Tribute to Equestrians and Swimmers
July 6 - September 15, 2012
Strength _ Grace
Strength and Grace honors the athletic prowess and beauty of two Summer Olympic sports – Swimming and Equestrian Riding and Jumping.

Several of our featured artists have an Olympic connection.

For Graphite Artist, Sheona Hamilton-Grant, her first muse and start of her artistic career, was equine Superstar, Rembrandt Borbet. She met “Remmi” when she worked for 1988 and 1992 Olympic Gold medalist, Nicole Uphoff, the German Dressage rider. The exhibit will also feature, one of her portrait’s of the legendary sire Florestan I. He has made breeding history. His bloodline having marked and shaped the German warmblood horse. Many horses performing in the London 2012 Summer Olympics will be of Florestan decent.

Hawaii artist, Carol Bennett, first started painting swimmers when she was living in Los Angeles and swimming at the LA Athletic Club. According to Carol, “The floor beneath the pool, with its ethereal skylight was an underwater observation room...used by Olympic coaches in the 1920's. I would feel like a voyeur, watching the swimmer's private time and drawing in their beauty.” It was here she learned to capture their movement, reflections and grace.

The exhibit features the Equestrian artwork of three, stylisticly different artists. Each brings the majestic and powerful animals to life and into action:

  • Arizona Mixed Media Realist, Ken Peloke
  • European Graphite Artist, Sheona Hamilton-Grant
  • Expressionistic Idaho Artist, Donna Bernstein
It will also feature the Swimmers of:
  • Hawaii Artist, Carol Bennett
