Only 20 seats available for $25 including materials.  You’ll take home you own masterpiece!

No experience needed for this class.

“Wild Horses” by Kelly Dew

We get asked, “Is this your work?” every day by visitors to LabourLove. We thought the one year show would be a perfect time to shine the light back on co-owner/curator Kelly Dew’s personal artwork.
Kelly’s fascination with horses started at a young age when she and her cousins tried to wrangle their strong headed family horse, Tinkerbell. She now views her work much like a thoroughbred waiting to break from the gate at the start of a race. Kelly plans the paintings in her head sometimes months in advance, and then she’s off and running once the paint meets the canvas. She prefers to work quickly with a clear deadline in her sight. Paintings are usually finished in one sitting allowing her to stay in the moment with each piece. Dew says, “Horses allow me the freedom to just let go and paint without thinking or dwelling on the details. These paintings are about capturing the excitement I had as a kid trying to ride Tinkerbell at my grandfather’s house.”
The show will benefit the North Carolina Therapeutic Riding Center with 25% of original artwork sales on opening weekend. The NCTRC improves the lives of children through equine-assisted therapeutic programs. Kelly will exhibit a series of horse paintings based on photos taken from the NCTRC pastures in Mebane, NC.
