‘Horses in Motion’ reception


Nativa Interiors is hosting a six-week art exhibit showcasing the gentle beauty of horses, celebrated with an opening cocktail reception held July 19 at the store’s Solana Beach location.

The exhibition includes more than a dozen works by 10 locally and nationally renowned artists, many who represent the local art culture in Southern California.

“Horses in Motion” is presented gallery-style in the front of Nativa’s vast 7,000-square-foot Solana Beach showroom and will run through Aug. 30. The exhibit also supports After the Finish Line, with 10 percent of the proceeds from artwork sales going to the organization that rescues and retrains Thoroughbreds for a second life after their racing careers are over.

Exhibit artists include renowned glass sculptor Joseph Moscoso; painter Darlene Katz; equestrian artist Donna Bernstein; painter Ritch Gaiti, who specializes in Native American art; and Amos Robinson, a sculptor in stainless steel whose bike sculptures can be seen at the Boardwalk Shopping Center in Solana Beach.

The exhibit is on display at Nativa Interiors Solana Beach, 143. S. Cedros Ave. Visit nativafurniture.com. For information on After the Finish Line, visit www.afterthefinishline.org.
