Sharon Crute

Being involved in the horse racing industry for over thirty years has provided Sharon Crute the distinctive ability to create dynamic equine paintings expressing powerful movement and speed. Her experience at the racetrack stretches the gamut from hotwalker to racing official.

Because of Crute’s extensive involvement in all aspects of racing, she feels that her artwork is straight “from the trenches”. She endeavors to “express the subtle with an undercurrent of volatility” resulting from intimate knowledge of the emotional anguish and exhilaration shared by all those who love horse racing. Numerous galleries, arts councils and racing centers on both coasts exhibit her artwork. Included in her resume is a long list of private and public collectors including those abroad in Italy, England and Japan.

Some of Crute’s recent exhibitions include a group show at the Florida Thoroughbred Breeders’ and Owners’ Association in Ocala, Florida and at Equidae Gallery in Saratoga Springs, New York; a two-artist exhibit at Gallery Central in Hot Springs, Arkansas; and a solo exhibit at Fayette Gallery in Lexington, Kentucky. Her artwork has also been exhibited at the Museum of Florida Art in Deland, Florida and The Elliott Museum in Stuart, Florida.
