Phyllis Frazier named the Cover Artist for the 2008 HITS Saugerties Official Show Program

SAUGERTIES, NEW YORK (May 23, 2008)---HITS is pleased to announce Phyllis Frazier as its cover artist for the 2008 HITS Saugerties Official Show Program.

Frazier selected the water color painting "Airborne" for the cover of the 2008 HITS Saugerties Official Show Program. The painting features a horse and rider, in profile, jumping a fence in a horse show competition. The attention is on the horse and rider, with the fence represented sparsely and in soft-focus as if it was a mere afterthought.

"I generally work in oil," said Frazier. "But something about the reference I was using spoke to me of fluidity, movement, and the ephemeral quality of time in the moment of the jump. I had been wanting to experiment with watercolor, so this image seemed like an appropriate choice for that medium."

"When working on a horse painting, my mind romances the ages of cavalry and kings," added Frazier.

Frazier's paintings reflect her lifelong interest in both art, nature, and the animal world. In addition to receiving a Bachelor of Science in Studio Art from New York University, she has studied with noted wildlife photographers, natural history filmmakers, wildlife conservationists, artists and animal trackers.

Recently, Frazier participated in the 2008 Equine Art Show during the 2008 HITS Ocala Winter Circuit. The New York City based artist is also planning to participate in the 2008 Equine Art Show during the 2008 HITS Saugerties summer series of horse shows.

"I enjoy being around people who have great love and respect for their animals," said Frazier. "I am looking forward to listening to the many stories that people will share about their horses."
