EAST DURHAM – Unbridled Sanctuary announced its highly anticipated fine art photography exhibition, “The Horses of Unbridled,” debuting at Five Furlongs Tavern in East Durham.
The exhibition will run from Feb. 1-29, kicking off a series of community events in celebrating two decades of compassion. The opening reception is scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 4, from 4-6 p.m.
Susan Kayne, founder of Unbridled Sanctuary and curator of the exhibition, said, “This exhibition is a heartfelt tribute to the resilience and beauty of horses rescued from dire circumstances. Each piece of art tells a story of triumph over adversity, aiming to deepen public understanding and stir a collective commitment toward the protection and well-being of all horses.”
The exhibition showcases the work of renowned artists and photographers, including Susie Gordon, Shari Benjamin Raymond, Mark Sullivan, Trish Bode, Ron Klein, Tonya Hughes, John Quist, and Holly Scism.
Their images capture the essence of remarkable horses such as Possession, a mare once valued at $2,000,000, and illustrious race winners including I’m Lucky, Time For Angie, Touching My Toes, Countess Claudia, and Creative Design. Collectively, these horses earned millions on the track.
Rescued by Unbridled from the brink of slaughter, today they live as treasured members of the equine family at Unbridled Sanctuary.
“We are so pleased to host ‘The Horses of Unbridled’ exhibition at Five Furlongs. With our tavern’s equine-centric ambiance, deeply influenced by Ireland’s equestrian heritage, we feel uniquely connected to this cause,” said Garrett Doyle, the proprietor of Five Furlongs Tavern. “It’s an honor to contribute to the great work Unbridled is doing to protect these noble creatures.”
The artworks displayed are available for purchase, with proceeds directly supporting the ongoing rescue efforts of Unbridled Sanctuary.
Five Furlongs Tavern is located at 2478 Route 145, East Durham, NY 12423.
Unbridled Sanctuary invites the community and all equine enthusiasts to attend the exhibition and be part of a movement that cherishes and respects the lives of these animals.
