The artist’s reception for “Of Horse,” an exhibition of Suzanne Gooch’s equestrian and western paintings, will be from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday at Szabo Vineyards Tasting Room in Nevada City.
The paintings are inspired by Gooch’s Wyoming western roots and photos taken of the shadows cast when hiking with her horse.
“I’ve was bitten by the horse bug as a girl and I’ve never recovered. They are magnificent animals, and my intention with these paintings is to show the special relationship that can be had with them. And the show has a few token cowboys to boot,” she said.
Gooch lives in Sausalito and her horse and muse, Tanner, lives on Horse Hill in Mill Valley.
“Of Horse” will show from Friday through June 20 at Szabo Vineyards Tasting Room, 316 Broad St., Nevada City.
