Ex Arte Equinius III

Vision 18 Collective member and artist, Kim Vickrey recently won several awards in the Ex Arte Equinus III Equine Art competition. Her work "Equestrian Angel" was awarded 1st Place in Photography by Juror Susan Friedman. Susan said of Kim's print, "Out of all the entries this piece stood out, here in one frame Equestrian Angel captures perfectly the enchantment of imagination of myth in relationship to the horse. There is always something evocative and mysterious about a good photograph and this image using selective focus stands out as a wonderful embodiment of all the criteria I was asked to consider. This photograph portrays the archetype of the angel and the horse and captures the spirit of the subject beautifully. The horse, the wings, the beach and the lighting all work together to create an evocative image. Bravo!!!"

In addition to the photography group, Kim's piece's "Concerto in the Sun" and "Carousel des Chevaux" placed 3rd and 5th consecutively in the Digital Media competition by juror Diana Allison.

There were over 1000 individual pieces entered in this year's competition with an impressive list of nationality's represented. The accepted work will be posted on the Art Horse Magazine website by January 2010, with the Magazine and book being released in March 2010.
