Unbridled Spirits Opening Art Reception Dec 7th

Please join us for the Unbridled Spirits Opening Art Reception Dec 7th.  This opening reception celebrates the artists that participated on Oct 21 creating art at Unbridled Spirits and the many supporters of this wonderful ranch.  6 – 8 pm.

Unbridled Spirits is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2012 and based out of Lisbon, Iowa.

This is the ONLY off-track thoroughbred retirement sanctuary in the entire Midwest whose transition process includes a full-time pasture retirement option! Yes, there are some amazing facilities that offer career transitioning to an other sport like dressage, eventing, hunter jumper, and more…. But there are no other sanctuaries that allow the horses to run free on over 100 acres and just learn how to be horses again! 

The mission is to preserve the honor and dignity of these amazing athletes by offering a retirement option to these racing thoroughbreds whose racing, breeding, and competitive careers come to an end. 

When a racing star leaves the track or the breeding shed, they still have a large fan-following and a tourist appeal… not to mention a desire for love and affection, same as any horse! We care what happens to these horses, and so many others do as well.

Book Signing Nov 17 – Harper Unleashed

Kenneth Bloom will be at the Vendor and Artisan’s Fair on Nov 17th at Mount Vernon Creates for his new book signing.  You might recognize this name from this year’s Lincoln Highway Arts Festival in Mount Vernon, IA.

This book is the 4th in a series of detective stories. Harper, the protagonist, hears that a 9 year old girl is missing. It’s January and she fears the worst. “I’ve got to find her John!” Her husband can’t fathom why the girl’s disappearance has become personal, but there are so many events in Harper’s past that she won’t share. What is clear is this case will unleash every ounce of power she possesses.

Portrayal of Mount Vernon Exhibition

The Portrayal artists were out in full force on Oct 6th. The day was quite damp but, the artists persisted.  I love seeing the artists creating all over town.  It is so exciting to see the progression on each piece of work from a blank canvas to a finished master piece or taking someone’s vision to recording it in a photo.  I also enjoy the feeling of the artists community sharing inspirations with each other.

Please come enjoy this exhibition at Mount Vernon Creates:

Opening Reception – November 23rd, 2018 (6 – 8 pm)
Exhibition – November 19th – January 25th, 2018

Portrayal Artist: Nancy Lindsay
Portrayal Artist: Eli Ehlinger
