Spring Glen artist wins international recognition

Sun Advocate Reporter

Spring Glen artist Sandy Wisecup has won international honors from the American Academy of Equine Art, Inc. Her watercolor painting "Bending 2" was chosen as the signature piece that will represent equestrian art for the 2010 World Equestrian Games to be held in Lexington, KY, this fall.

Her painting is a transparent watercolor on paper depicting a horse and rider competing in Dressage, a riding competition that requires a horse to exhibit refined, precise movement. It is a bold composition, framing only the front quarters of the horse in motion and the rider from left boot to shoulder. The work will be featured in an exhibition, "A Salute to the World Equestrian Games, 2010" to be presented by the Keenleand Foundation, Kentucky Horse Racing Foundation, Kentucky Horse Park and the Lexington History Museum. The American Academy of Equine Art is in partnership with the exhibition.

Ms. Wisecup says the painting will be used in marketing and promotion of the Games, which are being hosted in America for the first time this year.

"Art has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember," Ms. Wisecup said in an interview. She decided to become a professional 20 years ago, after taking art courses from Cliff and Janet Bergera at the College of Eastern Utah. That's not an easy career to pursue, given the competition that is out there. "It's a long road, and it has its ups and downs. You can't be cowardly," she said.

She built her reputation gradually, joining associations and entering competitions for exhibitions. Over the past two decades, her work has earned exhibition space in galleries and exhibits in half the states of the United States, and has even been shown at the Buckingham Palace Gallery - the Queen's Gallery in London, England.
