2020 Hindsight: 40 Years of the American Academy of Equine Art

Oct 2, 2020 - Mar 21, 2021

Begun in Middleburg, VA, in 1980 and now based in Lexington, KY, the American Academy of Equine Art’s (AAEA)  founding members were some of the top sporting painters and sculptors of the day: Jean Bowman, June Harrah, Henry Koehler, William Wallace Nall, Marilyn Newmark, Eve Prime, Princess Marie Louise Moncada, Richard Stone Reeves, Sam Savitt, and Else Tuckerman. Forty years later, the organization has inspired a generation of equine artists in all manner of media, techniques, and artistic influences. The exhibition and accompanying catalog, 2020 Hindsight, will explore the rich history of the AAEA, and a dynamic selection of works by members through to the present will be selected to highlight the varied talents fostered by this influential organization over the years.
