The Dutch Equine Art Fair 2023
in partnership with the Living Horse museum

The Dutch Equine Art Fair, held from 12-15 August at De Hollandsche Manege in the heart of Amsterdam, was a remarkable event that brought together artists, collectors, and enthusiasts to celebrate the beauty of equine art. With conversations filling the air and the warm sunshine adding a golden touch to the artworks, this art fair was a truly unforgettable experience.

Four Days of Inspiration and Excitement

From the moment visitors entered the art fair, they were greeted by a vibrant atmosphere filled with passion and creativity. Artists, collectors, and enthusiasts engaged in lively discussions about the art and their shared love for horses. The energy was palpable, creating an environment that inspired and uplifted everyone present. As the days progressed, the stunning artworks on display mesmerized visitors. The combination of skill and artistic vision captured the beauty, grace, and spirit of horses in a breathtaking way. Each piece seemed to come alive, inviting the viewers to immerse themselves in the world of equine art.

Highlight: Ellen Pitlo's Book Talk

One of the highlights of the Dutch Equine Art Fair was Ellen Pitlo's book talk on the human-horse relationship. Pitlo's insights and deep understanding of the bond between humans and horses, an d in particular her own mare Cheyenne, resonated with the audience. It was a truly enlightening and thought-provoking experience that added an extra layer of appreciation to the art on display.

Beauty in Unity: Ifat Zohar's Presentation

In addition to Ellen Pitlo's book talk, Ifat Zohar's presentation of the photo book 'Beauty in Unity' in the historic stables was yet another great success. The stunning photography, combined with Ifat's explanations, captured the essence of the human-horse relationship in a beautiful and unique way. The presentation created a space for visitors to reflect on their own experiences with horses and connect with each other in a meaningful way, bringing people together. 

A Shared Love for Equine Art

Throughout the fair, it was evident that the love for equine art united all the participants. Artists, collectors, and enthusiasts came from different backgrounds but shared a common passion for horses. It was heartwarming to witness the connections made and the conversations shared among people who understood and appreciated the art form deeply.

Gratitude and Acknowledgment

The success of the first Dutch Equine Art Fair was made possible by the talent and dedication of the twenty-two artists from six different countries. Their trust in the vision of the organisers and their participation in this event made it truly extraordinary.
