Much of Laurie Kersey’s work focuses on her life-long love, horses. After riding for many years, an injury ended that activity, and the direction of her work turned to equine-themed subjects as a means of maintaining that relationship and keeping horses in her life. Her work has, for many years, included the dramatic coastline and quiet countryside of California, as well as elegant florals.

Tres Amigos is part of a series inspired by a week spent on a ranch in Colorado with a herd of domestic horses who roamed freely when they were not working,” says Kersey. “I was taken by the affectionate bond and familial closeness of the herd.”

Upcoming exhibitions include the Oil Painters of America Western Regional Juried Exhibition at Sorrel Sky Gallery in Santa Fe, NM; the American Women Artists Exhibition at the RS Hanna Gallery in Fredericksburg, TX; and the Mountain Oyster Club Contemporary Western Art Show & Sale in Tucson, AZ.

Kersey is a Signature Member of the California Art Club, Oil Painters of America, and American Women Artists, an Artist Member of the American Impressionist Society and the American Academy of Equine Art, and is represented by Jones & Terwilliger Galleries in Carmel and Palm Desert, CA, and K Nathan Gallery in La Jolla, CA.

She has been honored with awards in the OPA National Juried Exhibition, Greenhouse Gallery Salon International, Carmel Art Festival, American Women Artists National Juried Exhibition, Hudson Valley Art Association National Juried Exhibition, San Luis Obispo Plein Air Painting Festival, and Torrey Pines Plein Air Invitational. She has been featured in Art of the West MagazineSouthwest Art Magazine, PleinAir MagazineFine Art Connoisseur Magazine, American Artist Magazine, USEF’s Equestrian Magazine, Horses in Art Magazine, and has been a first place winner in the Artist’s Magazine’s annual competition.
