July 19 through August 11 Artists Reception July 26 from 5:30 to 8pm
Lindsey's love for horses was immediate starting as early as age 2. Her parents supported her by getting her a pony as soon as she could hold herself in the saddle. In many ways her childhood was defined on the backs of all the wonderful equine spirits that came into her life. Art was also an early childhood passion, and Lindsey spent a lot of time painting or drawing horses. As time went on, her two interests for horses and art became more intertwined. Creating horses in different media was a way to express Lindsey's pure love for the horse, and at Bennington College, she focused specifically in sculpture to improve her craft. After college, Lindsey stayed in Vermont, where by luck the rivers and the driftwood were abundant. Lindsey was working for a horse farm at the time when the blend of art and horses took shape in the first driftwood forms. After many years of enthusiastic trial and re-building, Lindsey developed a system to combine strength and freedom in her driftwood sculptures.
