JANUARY 2005, EQUINE ART EXHIBITION AT THE ANDENNE TOWN HALL, THE "SKYROS HORSE".

Vie Mosane, 29th December 2004

As from January 2005, SILVA, a non-profit organisation, organises in several European countries a series of equine art exhibitions for the preservation of the "Skyros horse". The first exhibition will be held in Andenne from the 8th to the 16th January - Andenne Town hall, Lime tree square n° 1, 5300 Andenne.

The "Horse Art" exhibition will present Skyros horse paintings, drawings, sculptures and art photography from a number of talented artists. All original works and some reproductions such as greeting cards and posters will be sold to support the preservation and breeding of the endangered Skyros horse.

SILVA promotes a commendable cause through art. The 'hipparion' (small horse) of Skyros has served man time and time again. The Skyros horse is a prime example of the symbiosis between man and animal, but today it is almost forgotten and in desperate need of a new future. This is the reason why SILVA decided to breed the Skyros horse and develop new activities for it -riding for children and hippotherapy.
