Trailside Galleries of Scottsdale celebrates the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show with a special exhibition of works by award-winning artist Bruce K. Lawes in “Equine Elegance” through Feb. 22.

Internationally collected, award-winning artist Bruce K. Lawes has been generating a lot of interest from collectors and art media, especially in the United States where he has been garnering attention with his stunning equine portraits and historic Civil War paintings.

Mr. Lawes is represented both in the Southwest and in Wyoming by Trailside Galleries where several of his equine portraits, including “With Grace” are being offered for sale during the gallery’s “Equine Eleganc” showcase through Feb. 20.

The show coincides with the annual Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show.

“I’ve found the horse to be my favorite subject as an artist; the challenges they present and the power and beauty they convey is undeniable,” said Mr. Lawes.

The range of his equine interpretations reach far and wide, from depicting the plight of America’s wild mustangs to portraying the power and speed of racehorses and hunter/jumpers to the grace and elegance of dressage horses.
