Horse Mania 2010 Horses
The quintessential countryside along Paris Pike, admired for its beauty, inspired Kathy Rees Johnson’s horse. The two-sided Paris Pike reveals a lovely pastoral scene and a world-renowned horse farm with its stone retaining wall. The beautiful lines of the highway illuminate the topography as the tallest buildings of Lexington peek over the horizon. Johnson studied design at University of Cincinnati and has a BA in Art History from the University of Kentucky. She participated in LexArts’ Horse Mania (2000).
