HITS' Second Annual Equine Art Gala to return to New World Home Cooking Co. on Thursday, July 24

SAUGERTIES, NEW YORK (June 24, 2008)--When the HITS horse shows return to Saugerties, New York in late July for HITS-on-the-Hudson IV, exhibitors will be treated to an eclectic display of horse art at the second annual Equine Art Gala and Exhibitor Mixer at New World Home Cooking Co. on Thursday, July 24, 2008, from 7 pm to 9 pm.

Many regional artists will be featured at the by-invitation-only event. Artists already scheduled to have their artwork on display include Mary Bridgman, Jean Campbell, Maria D'Angelo, Phyllis Frazier, Jean Haines, Juliet Harrison, Lenny Marks, Deborah O'Sullivan, JoAnne Sullam, Kristen Vetterl, and Barbara Widmann.

"Being able to participate once again in bringing my work to the HITS audience is wonderful," said Harrison. "The show grounds is one of the main places that I get many of the images that I use to create my art. Showing the work there and especially at the Equine Art Gala seems to be just the right fit."

"Last years Equine Art Gala drew rave reviews from everyone that attended," said HITS' Art Director Leslie Phillips, who is organizing the event again this year. "It really gives each artist that participates a unique opportunity to showcase their artwork at a fabulous venue."

The night of fine equestrian art will be complimented by a broad selection of renowned chef Ric Orlando's global food offerings at New World Home Cooking Co. The restaurant is hosting the Equine Art Gala and Exhibitor Mixer for the second consecutive year.

"I am thrilled to open the doors at New World Home Cooking Co. for the Equine Art Gala again," said Orlando. "It was a marvelous event last year and I am looking forward to hosting it again in the future."

Artist Kristen Vetterl added "I was so excited to have been a participating artist in last years Equine Art Gala, the people I met, the food we ate, and the paintings on display all molded together into a wonderful and exciting evening that I will never forget. This year I look forward to being a part of this event that brings members of the horse world who share an equal passion for the sport and the art of it."

Other activities during HITS-on-the-Hudson IV include a special HITS Saugerties Martini Night, presented by Zephyr Gin on Friday, July 25 and on Saturday, July 26 HITS Saugerties will host its first-ever car show, when the HITS-on-the-Hudson Classic Car Showcase comes rolling into town.

Based in upstate New York in the village of Saugerties, HITS produced its first horse show circuit in Gainesville, Florida in 1982.
