ARTIST Jenny Morrison loves horses and so staging an exhibition supporting Costa Blanca equine rescue charity APAC was a logical step.
The animals are often painted by Tormos-based Jenny, along with dance – tango, flamenco and ballet – they are major influences in her work; sometimes appearing in the same picture.
And the show of her work at Restaurante L’Om in Pego raised more than €635 for APAC, which runs a horse sanctuary in La Xara.
The exhibition included a tapas preview and ended with a special lunch, while two pictures by the artist were also auctioned – one selling for €80 and the second for €100 – and Jenny pledged 20% from sales to the charity.
Jenny began riding herself as a four-year-old. “We were lucky enough to have always had horses in the family; unfortunately, in the last few years I have been unable to ride following back surgery – instead, I paint them.
“It gives me tremendous pleasure. Because I know horses so well, their physique, behaviour and how they are as animals; it helps when painting to capture their character in the picture.”
Jenny said she was introduced to APAC through a friend and decided to “get together” with the charity through the exhibition.
