"Poetry in Motion: The Equine Art of Jaime Corum and Richard Sullivan" is on exhibit at The Brown Hotel through July 1. What better Derby week guests to have for LVA's Artebella On The Radio! Tune in Thursday at 10am on WXO 97.1 FM/Artxfm.com.
Jaime Corum is an equine artist based in Louisville, Kentucky. Jaime's equine art is inspired and refined by her own experience with horses, especially her own horse Chesapeake. She has been drawing horses since she can remember and riding ever since she could talk her parents into it. Jaime's art evolved from doing portraits of friend's horses for fun to a full time career of commissioned portraits and original compositions. Jaime's work can be seen at Kentucky Fine Art Gallery in Louisville, KY, New Editions Gallery in Lexington, KY, and Tilting at Windmills Gallery in Vermont and Saratoga, NY
Richard Sullivan is an artist and former professional baseball player with the Atlanta Braves. Born and raised in Louisville, KY, he studied at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) where he received a BFA in Illustration. He had the opportunity to play baseball at SCAD and to continue his interest in art and illustration. In 2008, Richard was drafted by the Braves in the 11th round as a junior and played 6 years of minor league baseball. He returned to SCAD in 2014 to finish his degree and focus exclusively on his artwork.
His work has been accepted into the permanent collection of the National Baseball Hall of Fame, the Yogi Berra Museum and exhibited by the Louisville Slugger Museum and the Kentucky Derby Museum.
In 2017 the Atlanta Braves commissioned Richard to create 18 original watercolor paintings and 20 prints for their new stadium SunTrust Park. The paintings line the corridors of the Champions suite and the Executive Offices.
