I create feelings of movement and music, through the lines, colors, and shapes of living things. The graceful movements of the horse have inspired my artwork since I was a child; clothed in the trappings of diverse cultures, horses share the tapestry of our world history.
Contemporary artist Stacey Mayer's drawings and paintings are recognized by equestrians worldwide. A precocious artist, she is well known for the colorful gesture drawings, and colorful paintings she's created since childhood. A Seattle native, Stacey grew up riding her Anglo-Arabian horse in the hills of Woodinville, WA.
See the upcoming feature on Stacey's artwork in, "Equestrian County Magazine", of Australia.
Stacey has created artwork for the Israeli Arabian Horse National Championships, European Championship Liberty Class Sculpture in Italy, and original paintings now in collections from Dubai, to Cairo. Her bronzes were presented on behalf of the Pacific Morgan Horse Show Association, and as bronze portraits of champion Arabians.
Stacey and her husband, Phil, have four grown daughters, and one grandson. They make their home just north of Seattle.
This year's Washington Horseman's Park Annual Gala Event auction fundraiser, will include my original contemporary acrylic painting, "Unbridled Horses", as a 100% donation to the event. A new, state of the art facility, the equestrian park is close to realizing the dream of building a spectacular indoor arena as the show piece for the 112 acre facility.
When I was a young woman, my best friend and I would look forward to attending horse shows at Bridle Trails State Park, near Kirkland, WA. A lovely outdoor facility, you were smart to arrive early, if you were to watch the hunter jumper classes in decent bleacher seats - meaning the few seats available in the shade of the pine trees on the West side. As time went on, Bridle Trails became surrounded by upscale homes back to back, and fewer horse properties.
Snohomish County also tried to fund and maintain a horse show facility in Monroe, WA, at the large and popular fairgrounds there. Unfortunately, their new horse show arena was quickly appropriated for indoor motorcycle events. With the car racing track, right behind the arena, it wasn't always a happy situation. The use of the arena by equestrians, and the nextboor car racing events, still share the popular venue, that has admirably shuffled dates for use around the needs of all concerned.
Washington State equestrians smartly obtained a suitable parcel of land for a grand horse park; suitable for International events, permanently dedicated to all equestrian sports centrally located in Cle Elum, WA. Placed safely past the seasonal rain curtain of Western Washington, the Horseman's Park boasts open access to miles of trails via adjacent National Forest lands.
We'll be looking for you in future years at the expansive equestrian facility being realized near Cle Elum, among the big pines. My contemporary equine art donation is in remembrance of the summer horse shows I attended with my best friend, so many years ago.
The tribes living from around the Salish Sea are creative, and inventive people. From turning a tall cedar tree, into a vertical totem pole that tells a story for generations, or changing ideas into software that runs the world; Seattle rain seems to encourage the composting of ideas, into concrete works of art, and technology.
Seattleite Don Miles used the common-place materials of acrylic, and cement, and gave us something that could be colorful, durable, and flexible, a new material, useful in the creation of durable works of art, or the many ways that cement alone may be found. When I met Don, he was selling this amazing, powdered material, out of his garage in the Mount Baker neighborhood of Seattle. He'd measure it out like flour into buckets, weight it, place it in plastic buckets, seal it; then proceed to pour a milky, white liquid into gallon jugs, matched to the dry amount.
I was usually trailing along one of my little girls, who would explore his interesting piles of rocks, fascinated by the several different gravel sizes he had separated into neat, small mounds in his backyard. As I would anxiously call my daughters off the very top of the not-so-perfect-anymore, hills of rocks, he would hand me my purchase, help us into the car, and on we'd go home to create our first experiments in a new, Seattle invention. An acrylic plus cement, admixture.
Don encouraged me to use this material to build my horses, and see what I could achieve. Many other artisans and sculptors were discovering the unique, hardy properties of his durable material as colorful sculptures, vessels, and surfaces.
Soon thereafter, (maybe inspired by my toddler's frequent disruption of his organized rock piles,) Don's local material was soon made available in the commercial neighborhood of Ballard, at Salmon Bay Sand and Gravel.
Acrylic and cement, Milestone is able to withstand time, and share an enduring image, for future generations along the Salish Sea.
