An art show for art lovers, horse lovers, equestrians, and artists.
Montrose watercolorists Barb Haynie and Cheri Isgreen have scheduled this yearlong traveling art show to raise awareness for the Colorado Horsecare Foodbank, nurture interest and excitement in equine art, and provide a rich cultural experience for the community. 45 Degree is honored to host the Colorado Springs opening of this year long event.
High Point opens on Chinese Lunar New Year's Day: January 31st. 2014 is the Year of the Horse. The opening, held at 45 Degree in Old Colorado City, kicks off a yearlong celebration of the horse. Show sales & silent auction items will benefit the Colorado Horsecare Foodbank (CHF). With the Black Forest and numerous other Colorado wildfires, the subsequent flooding affecting residents in Boulder, El Paso, Larimer and Weld Counties, it has been a challenging year for horses and their humans. CHF is a 501(c)3 foundation that has helped countless horses and their families during recent emergencies. By bringing this show to Colorado Springs, we can raise awareness and funds in a community where the CHF has helped so many. During the opening, CHF founder, Juliana Lehman will speak about her foundation and their mission for 2014.
Cheri and Barb will show a collection of original equine paintings. There will be Chinese New Year themed food, horse treats, and libations. Come out to help celebrate 2014, The Year of the Horse . The show runs through Feb. 28th
