“HIGH POINT, The Art of Showing Horses” travels to Westminster, Co for a celebratory opening during the Kentucky Derby weekend at the Westminster Brewing Company, May 2nd & 3rd. Wear your best Derby bonnet for a free beer and a chance to win prizes. We will award prizes for the “Derby Winner,” (best hat), & the “Daily Double,” (best themed hats worn by 2 people.)
The Westminster Brewing Company boasts a casual, friendly setting with a roomy bar area and a cozy conference room. In this venue, the artwork will have a special showcase with extensive wall space and a brand new hanging system. The artwork will hang throughout the brewery/gallery, with the conference room hosting Colorado Horsecare Foodbank founder, Julianna Lehman, the benefit silent auction, art reception food, and interactive art projects for 2014 “Year of the Horse.” Learn to fold a paper horse, (called Zhezi in China) and try your hand at Chinese brush painting.
Gather your friends, and call the Brewery to sign up for Saturday’s workshop, “Muse & Brews.” I will lead a workshop guiding you with tips and techniques to discovery your muse through found objects, as we watch the Kentucky Derby back stories and the big race while enjoying the Brewery’s exemplary craft beers.

Imagine if you were faced with the prospect of losing your beloved equine companion because you could no longer afford to feed or care for him. We can’t imagine this either. Colorado Horsecare Foodbank™ was founded on the fundamental belief that our horses make our lives better, and they deserve to be treated with the utmost care and respect.
Families across Colorado are facing challenging financial circumstances. Whether it’s the loss of a job, reduced wages, or a health crisis—the impact has been enormous, especially on horse owners. Recent natural disasters, including fires and floods, had added to the challenges horse owners face.
Colorado Horsecare Foodbank, a 501(c)3 nonprofit foundation, was formed to keep people and their horses together during difficult financial times by providing short-term grants for hay and grain.
