2016 BARREL MANE-IA BARRELS

Artist:  Agustin Zarate
Name of Barrel: 
Super Horse

AgustinZarateMy art in this barrel is about Secretariat. The idea is taken from Times Magazine, with the title, “The Super Horse”. The article was about him and the Kentucky Derby. It is all about the fusion of the colors of white and blue.

Honestly, the first time I saw these two colors and the geometry that’s in the silks, I thought they were, “Super Colors”! Then I learned about the history of this horse, and that the record is still up Secretariat, I thought that he really was a, “Super Horse”.

 

ARTIST:  ALISON THOMPSON
NAME OF BARREL:  
BOURBON CHUKKAH

It’s a Polo Themed Barrel. The must-have accessory for any ten-goal team!  This barrel’s accents depict the tradition of the Thoroughbred as high-speed, brave and agile mounts – just as Secretariat!

Bourbon has long been associated with Polo.  The goal of the Bourbon Chukka is to relax after the trophy’s been awarded by kicking up your boots, (onto the barrel, of course), and sipping your finest Kentucky Bourbon from the two engraved Glencairn glasses.  Have to untack a horse?  No worries!  Place your glasses in the custom leather cups hand crafted by Wild Grace Workshop. Holding your Bourbon isn’t it’s only purpose… It also can be used as the Patron’s mounting block!

NAME OF BARREL:  
MAKE MINE A TRIPLE

BobBuntingMy barrel is complete with bung and spigot. It is fully functional and can be filled, if desired, with your favorite beverage… Enjoy!!!

The labeling on the ends pertain to Secretariat and the Derby and is authentic in it’s representation. Three Crowns Distillery is a fictional name, (however, there actually is a Triple Crown Distillery in Illinois…go figure).

 

 

ARTIST:  BRENDA (SUE) LYNCH
NAME OF BARREL:  
CELEBRATING THE AMERICAN HORSE

BrendaSueLynchFrom early in the Americas to the present, people have been drawn to this magnificent animal, the horse. It can be a beast of burden, a mode of transportation, an object of gambling and a beloved companion.

The four images on this barrel depict; The reverence of the Native American for the horse. The romance of the American Cowboy who wouldn’t or couldn’t be a cowboy without his horse. The love of the horse in the Kentucky Bluegrass. And how a Mountain Pony can teach us the simple joy of running in the mountains.

The American Horse has touched many American cultures. This barrel attempts to honor, the American Horse.

ARTIST:  DACELLE PECKLER, DVM
NAME OF BARREL:  
FOR THE ROSES

DacellePecklerThis lovely barrel has a natural oil finish with a painted base. It is adorned with a blanket of handmade, intertwined, red roses made of recycled bailing wire. This bailing wire was used to bind hay and straw bales used on area Thoroughbred farms. The roses have a dusting of red paint upon them, the blanket of these red roses drapes over the barrel as it would each Derby winner’s withers. With hope, dreams, dedication and discipline the horses train… until the day may come, when for the roses, they run.

ARTIST:  GLORIA ARTEAGA-HINTON
NAME OF BARREL:  
THE BEAUTY OF MY OLD SECRETARIAT

GloriaArteagaHintonThe barrel was painted with a distressing effect on the background to resemble a vintage look.   My inspiration for this project was to transmit a living memory/message of Secretariat by using a combination of mixed media painting techniques.

I wanted to show off his exquisite and majestic beauty by the use of added texture with multiple layers of acrylic colors. Also, I added an embossing metal design in the front view of the barrel showing the full profile of this legendary horse.

NAME OF BARREL:  
silhouettes in the sun

WendyFoleyThe inspiration for this barrel painting came from a nature photo challenge posted on Facebook. The silhouettes of mares and foals on Shawnee Farm in Harrodsburg, KY (photo challenge credit to Wick Hughes, native of Paris, KY). I loved the rich color and the halo lighting around the horses and wanted to try and recreate the glow on the bourbon barrel.
