“THE FOAL PROJECT” VISITS THE NICHE GALLERY IN SARATOGA SPRINGS
TO BENEFIT EQUINE ASSISTED THERAPIES and ATC GENERAL COMMUNITY FUND
Meet the Artist Lisa Miller, August 1, Opening Reception 5 – 8 pm
The Niche Gallery, located in the historic Collamer Building in downtown Saratoga Spring is proud to announce the opening of “The Foal Project,” a series of beautiful images taken by photographer Lisa Miller. These 40” x 60”signed and numbered limited edition pieces are printed on metal and are absolutely breathtaking!
The “Foal Project,” which will be at The Niche through the end of August, is a not for profit traveling gallery show to raise awareness and funding for Equine Assisted Therapies. The project is sponsored by Towne Ryan & Partners and the Nemer Motor Group. During the local stay part of the show’s proceeds will also help to benefit the Adirondack Trust Company General Community Fund.
There are 12 images in the Foal Project, captured by Lisa Miller. The photos depict the moment of connection between a mare and her foal at birth. This moment of connection symbolizes the human-horse connection and the importance of recognizing these equine assisted therapies and how they are making a difference in the lives of so many.
The Foal Project images have been on display at prestigious galleries all over the country including Cross Gate Gallery in Lexington, KY and the Aiken Thoroughbred Racing Hall of Fame in Aiken, SC. Proceeds from the sale of these limited edition, signed/numbered prints on metal go to the Foal Project Donor Advised Fund established at the Adirondack Trust Company Community Fund in Saratoga Springs, NY. From there, the funds are used to fill grant requests made by Equine Assisted Therapy Centers that are IRS qualified 501(c) (3) organizations.
Some of the centers that have received funding from the Foal Project Donor Advised Fund include: Peaceful Acres, Pattersonville, NY; Double H Ranch, Lake Luzerne, NY; Columbia Greene Humane Society, Hudson NY; Wild Hearts Therapeutic Equestrian Program, W. Bridgewater, MA ; Jackson Hole Therapeutic Riding Assoc., Teton Village, WY; The Root Farm, Vernon, NY ; and Star Riding Program, Aiken, SC.
The Foal Project has gained national attention with media coverage on ESPN.com, The Bloodhorse, The Paulick Report and many other news sources. For more information on the Foal Project or to request a grant form please contact Lisa Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org or 315.525.8184.
