Hay 4 Horses


Janet Wold and Jane Meagher will be hosting a fund raiser for Equine Rescue of Marysville at their Gallery in downtown Everett. These two cowgirls are opening up their large gallery space to house a group show to benefit horse rescue.

They have invited local and regional artists who work in a large variety of mediums to participate. There will be paintings, sculptures, wire work, photography, encaustics, mosaics and so much more. The gallery will take no commission on sales and the majority of money raised will go directly to the horses for hay, feed and foot care which they are in dire need of.

Equine Rescue is a charitable organization 501 ( c ) 3. They have an all volunteer staff and currently have 31 horses, which is more horses then they have ever housed. This number has put them under difficult financial stress. The volunteers are working overtime and the budget is stretched thin. The need has never been greater with calls coming in daily asking them to take on more horses, which they cannot do. They have a long wish list, but mostly they worry about the basics of food, medical care, and enough volunteers to get the work done. This is a true labor of love for these helpers which you can literally feel as a visitor.

Janet could tell you all the sad stories of these horses, but they mostly come from some state of deprivation, abandonment or abuse, and Equine Rescue has taken on these noble creatures and saved them. They are cared for and loved. The organization has no outside funding. They are entirely dependent upon private donations. Let’s sell some art and save some horses!

The show will run from May 8th - June 14th , with an opening reception and opportunity to meet the artists during Art Walk , Saturday, May 15th, 5 - 8pm

The gallery space is located on the NE corner of Hewitt and Wetmore, in downtown Everett, just 4 blocks up from the Comcast Arena. 2831 Wetmore Avenue.
We will be open Mon - Saturday during the Horse Show.
