Announcement: Special Exhibition of British Sporting Art
To coincide with the 7th Annual Royal Ascot of SL benefiting RFL/ACTS, the Ravenheart Museum of Arts, Culture and Curious Things will host an in-depth exhibit of British Sporting Art, curated by Duchess Liz Wilner and Lady Oriella Charik. Beginning in around 1700 and spanning more than 200 years, the enduring appeal and beauty of English country life is reflected in more than 40 paintings, including a special section devoted to the incomparable work of famed horse and animal painter George Stubbs (1724-1806).
Often featuring specific portraits of beloved horses, dogs, and their owners, the exhibit provides an in-depth immersion into the sporting and daily pursuits of the British countryside. The exhibit also touches on larger themes related to Enlightenment era scientific inquiry, class structure, industrialization, and the development of roadways and transportation.
This incredibly special exhibit runs from June 1st through June 30th.
