Menlo Charity Horse Show artist selected

 

Heather Theurer of Las Vegas has been selected as the official artist for the 45th anniversary of the Menlo Charity Horse Show, which will be held Aug. 4-9 at the Menlo Circus Club in Atherton. The artist's work, titled "Equus Series I:ll," is painted in oils and valued at $2,625.

The painting will be auctioned Aug.7 at the gala dinner following the $40,000 Grand Prix jumping class. Reproduction of the painting will be featured on the event's mug, posters, invitations, stationery and website.

"Her art truly portrays the elegance, beauty and power of the horse," says co-chair and founder of the horse show, Betsy Glikberg.

More than 500 horses and riders are expected to compete in the events in three on-going arenas, two of which are set on the grass of the polo field.

Once again, the horse show will benefit Vista Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired. Through the years the show has raised more than $6 million for the center.
