"Equine Inspiration: The Art of Carole Andreen-Harris" will be on exhibit Wednesday through May 31 in the gallery at Kirk-Bear Canyon Library, 8959 E. Tanque Verde Road.

This exhibit showcases the powerful combination of athleticism and elegance that the equine exemplifies. On Andreen-Harris' canvases, horses gallop with great power, pose with true majesty and even take time getting comfortable just being horses. The artist enjoys painting horses of all types and has a particular soft spot for the magnificence of race horses.

You can meet the artist at an opening reception from 2 to 4 p.m. May 11.

An associate member of the American Academy of Equine Art, Andreen-Harris is also a member of International Equine Artists and a founding member of HeARTists for Horses, a group of four Southern Arizona artists with a passion for helping horses in need.

In 2012 she was added to a list of elite equine artists when she was selected to paint the winner of the prestigious $1 Million Pacific Classic, the signature race during the summer meet at Del Mar Racetrack in San Diego.

View the exhibit during library hours: 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Thursday; 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Friday; 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday; and 1-5 p.m. Sunday.

For more information, call the library at 594-5275.
