Long time friends and horse afficionados Trudy Cole and Julia Merkel debut a 2 person show "Ecce Equus" at Gaines Group Architects' Depot Gallery in the old Chesapeake & Western Railway building in Harrisonburg this Friday. Please join us for the reception 5-8pm at 141 W. Bruce Suite 201 Harrisonburg, VA.
Trudy Cole and Julia Merkel have been friends and colleagues for years. Despite a common and abiding love for horses, this is their first foray into showing their artwork together. Come view a selection of Cole’s original watercolor studies and drawings for an equine themed premium playing card deck project and Merkel’s horse and rider oil paintings exploring partnerships and personalities.
Behold the horse!
