The SEA 2017 exhibitions

The Society of Equestrian Artists returns to Palace House, Newmarket from July 10 to 16 for its Summer Open Exhibition and to Sally Mitchell’s Gallery, Tuxford from September 23 to October 7 for its 38th Annual Exhibition – Horse in Art 2017.

 

The Summer Exhibition at Newmarket coincides with Europe’s Premier Midsummer Sale at Tattersalls and The Moët & Chandon July Festival at the Adnams July Course so there is a great opportunity to have work seen by an audience of keen equestrians and the general public. As an Arts Fund UK 2017 Museum of the Year Finalist the venue of the SEA Summer Open Exhibition will know if it has been selected as THE Museum of the Year by the time of the opening day on July 10. Please CLICK HERE for full details.

The main Society of Equestrian Artists 38th Annual Exhibition – Horse in Art 2017,  is this year returning to Sally Mitchell’s Gallery in Tuxford (September 23 to October 7).
