This past weekend (June 15-17) I had the great joy to be a part of the Art Walk at the Polo for Heart event. As it was my very first time participating, I can only speak for this year’s atmosphere: vibrant, great energy all around, wonderful people. But most importantly, exquisite job done by all the organizers and volunteers. Not to mention a truly impressive list of sponsors! I was simply amazed to hear only fantastic feedback coming from all directions, everyone seemed to be truly taken with the overall high quality.
As an artist, I had the privilege to have my equine fine art canvases exhibited in a beautiful space, as the Artists’ tent this year was set up as a gallery.
Many thanks are going out to lovely Alyson Barron who has put a lot of creative effort into making sure our displays got great traffic and attention from the visitors.
I was also deeply honored to participate in the silent auction and contribute a little to the noble purpose of supporting the Heart and Stroke Foundation through my work.
The very first day I also had the pleasure to meet Argentinian Polo player Pablo Falabella who had the kindness to visit my booth. We had a great conversation about life around horses and what they mean to a man who has been on their back since he was 3 years old.
Whenever I could, I loved picking up my camera and freezing a few moments from the field. I am attaching some images below which I hope speak for the level of energy, enthusiasm, joy sharing this Polo for Heart weekend has been all about.
I look forward to coming back next year!
With gratitude, Manuela.
