Equus: Charcoal Drawings of Horses by Daphne Loney & History Paintings: New Work by George Schmidt 

Say Thanksgiving anywhere in America and what comes to mind? Right, it's turkey day. But in this city, where Thanksgiving marks the opening day of racing at the Fair Grounds, it's also horse day, and now they're a presence at some local galleries as well. Daphne Loney's charcoal drawings at the Big Top are the final product of a yearlong post-storm exile that eventually took her to New Mexico, where riding and drawing horses provided a restful respite. While George Schmidt's post-storm odyssey was briefer, he too was left with equine visions in the form of the racehorses that now populate his Julia Street gallery -- further evidence that, in local art circles at least, this seems to be the season of the horse. -- D.
