Now showing at Retrospect Galleries Broadbeach (Queensland) until 25 January 2012 is ‘The Magic of Racing’ exhibition.
Queensland artist Kathy Mackey is exhibiting her photograph ‘Equine Collection 2‘.
The artist says:
“The sport of horse racing has had a long tradition of celebration by nobility. A gentleman was noted for his possessions that included racehorse and personalised dinner ware that marked wealth and status in the community. Racing carnivals historically and in the present also represent the opportunity for people to gather in social groups and celebrate , not only the sport itself ,but the social expectations real or imagined that accompany it.”
