The Saratoga Ghost Horse Collection is an exhibit commemorating the horses killed by the racing industry on the Saratoga track since the start of the 2016 season. So far, a dozen paintings in this series have been completed, and are currently on display at the Romaine Brooks Gallery in Albany, a stone’s throw from Saratoga.
However, 19 horses died at Saratoga during the 2016 season, and another 19 died in 2017. They are killing horses faster than I can paint them. I would like to have a painting to commemorate each of the 38 victims of the Saratoga racing industry since the summer of 2016. The canvas is getting a little expensive. If you would like to help, please consider kicking down an item or two from this wish list. I’m especially in need of canvas right now. If you’d like to help out with this project by taking care of one of the items on this list, the good people at Blick will ship this right to my door. Sometimes, art takes resources…. Thanks for anything you can help with.
Here’s the list:
