Paper Mustangs brings Anthony full-circle to his photography roots of documenting horses. The images and film comprising this exhibit were shot in a four hour span on a windy day in October. Anthony’s muses consist of twelve wild mustangs that had been relocated to Cross Plains, Tennessee. Their vulnerability and beauty seem to float freely from the gallery walls, accompanied by the soft sounds of hooves and breathe of Scarlati’s film footage.

Also on exhibit during Season of Equine is My Kingdom for a Horse featuring horse themed art and antiques on loan from the Tennessee State Museum, West Tennessee Regional Art Center, and private collection. Other shows include the sports of barrel racing and walking horses, and work by members of the American Academy of Equine Art, Inc. The Crouch Gallery hosts Eric L Hansen’s Blood Rescue, an exhibit of multi-media works based on ancient cave drawings. The Customs House will host one of the horses from Eric’s exhibition on Saturday, December 13th, as part of its celebration of National Horse Day.
