Join renowned sporting artist Andre Pater at the beautiful Iroquois Hunt Club for a morning of inspiration and sketching. Pater will explain his working process and create a new work of art. Workshop participants are invited to bring sketch books and drawing materials to create their own drawing. 

Andre Pater, a native of Poland, graduated from the Krakow Academy of Fine Arts. As a young man, he was interested in Arabian horses, long a favorite breed in Poland, and he continued to pursue this interest upon relocation to the United States in 1981. Initially working in Dallas, Texas, Pater moved to Kentucky in 1998 and became interested in Thoroughbred horses, whose images he masterfully creates in charcoal, pastel, gouache, and oil.  Pater’s works capture light and life with singular grace; he shows us the power and speed of racing, the excitement of foxhunting, and the light-filled calm of pastoral Kentucky.  Pater’s work is included in numerous collections in the United States and abroad, and he has been the subject of many articles and publications.
