One of the unique experiences that BreyerWest offers visitors is getting to meet some of the incredible guest artists who are there to meet YOU, our Breyer fans.
Over the years, these artists have ranged from long-time hobby artists to official Breyer sculptors and painters and we are thrilled to host them so fans can meet them, ask questions about their work, and get a real up-close look at what goes into the creation of a Breyer model or a unique custom model.
||Back again and joining us for both weekend days of BreyerWest (March 16th and 17th) at our artist tables will be Maggie Jenner-Bennett, who is the incredible sculptor behind the molds used for American Dream, Fiero, Astrid, and more! Maggie is a full-time sculptor of model horses, specializing in micro mini scale but working in all sizes. She has sculpted a number of horses for Breyer and also does a Monthly Micro Mini subscription box. Be sure to ask her how to sign up when you meet her at BreyerWest!|
|If you loved this year’s Freedom Series Halloween decorator model, Slither, then you’ll definitely want to stick around for Sunday’s (March 17th) artist meet & greets to meet Christine Jordan! Also the mind behind the designs for Salem, Ratsputin, Eeek!, and Tabitha in the Freedom Series and for Apparition in Traditional Scale, Christine’s fun designs have become a Breyer Halloween tradition! In addition to designing patterns for spooky Halloween models, Christine is also skilled in the creation of flat art and digital art, as well as painting model horses in both realistic and fantasy colors.|
|Joining Christine and Maggie on Sunday, March 17th will also be the incredibly talented Jenn Constantine. This 2023 BreyerFest Best Customs Contest Finalist will be on hand to talk all things spooky! In the not-too-distant past, Jenn conceived an idea for a medallion: painting a ghostly skeleton horse. This brought about "Spook," a creation that quickly became beloved and an iconic representation of Jenn's work. Jenn has made a name for herself since in both the realms of realistic and fantastical interpretations of the equine skeleton.|
|If you love Breyer’s draft horse molds of the Cleveland Bay and the Shire Gelding (AKA Shannondell), then you’ll definitely want to hang around our artist tables on Saturday of BreyerWest weekend, March 16th so that you can meet their iconic sculptor, Karen Y. Gerhardt of Westerly Design. Karen's work is owned by collectors all over the world. Her sculptures have been consistent champions in the model horse show ring, and has been accepted into juried art shows including Art at the Classic (Draft Horse Classic in northern California) and three American Academy of Equine Art juried exhibitions. In 2005 her "Boreas" sculpture was awarded the Leonard J. Meiselman Memorial Award for Sculpture at the AAEA's Fall Open Juried Equine Art Exhibition, their top prize for sculpture.|
We’ll have these, and other, incredible artists on hand at BreyerWest in March to chat with fans and answer all your burning model horse art questions!
