About the Artist
A proud Lancer alumni, Donna Maguire graciously donated the piece to help us offset the costs of our summer quarantine. Donna rode at Lancers from 1947-1948 and she heard about our quarantine in the Chronicle Herald. Of her motivation for donating the painting, Donna explained “I was compelled to do something and this is something I can do”. “Lancers was not just part of my life but it made me part of who I am and I just love horses”, she added.
The painting depicts a Sable Island wild horse. “I love the horses of Sable Island. I love their grace, their mystique, and the legends surrounding them,” says Donna. “But what I love most is their strength and endurance. That is what I truly strive to capture in my work.”
Donna has her Rouges Studio gallery in Indian Harbour, NS near Peggy’s Cove. Donna Maguire was born and educated in Nova Scotia. In her earlier years, she studied under successful Maritime artists John Cook, Ruth Wainwright and Jean Edmonds Hancock. Donna works mainly in oils, painting not only the life and the people of the sea around her but also in portraiture. Her work is in private collections across Canada, the U.S., the British Isles and Europe. Learn more about Donna and her work at her website at www.maguireart.ca and on her Facebook page.
We LOVE this painting and it is going to be hard to hand it over when some lucky person WINS it!
The draw will be on January 23, 2019 so don’t miss out on your chance to win!
