New Editions Gallery and the American Academy of Equine Art are presenting a series of equine art events in April featuring artists that have worked with the Kentucky Derby, the Breeder’s Cup and other prestigious tracks and events.

"Time to Believe" by Lesley Humphrey.

Spindletop Hall, 3414 Iron Works Pike, will host a “Tea with the Artists” from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. April 12, featuring 2011 Breeder’s Cup artist Jaime Corum, Derby artist Lesley Humphrey and longtime equine photographer John Stephen Hockensmith. Topics will include Corum’s life-size painting of Zenyatta, navigating corporate commissions and distinctions between high-quality photographs and the many prints that are on the market. The talk will be followed by a viewing of the American Academy of Equine Art’s invitational exhibit. Tickets will be available for $35 through the academy and Spindletop.
Artists Attic at Victorian Square, Broadway at Main Street, will present Painting Horses With a Passion, a demonstration by Humphrey, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 13. She will talk about her techniques for representational art and personal expression. The event, which includes a one-hour lunch break, is free.
