A spectacular painting by popular artist Lisa Marie Bishop of triple Olympic dressage gold medalists, Charlotte Dujardin and “Valegro,” will be a featured item in the silent auction at the 2018 NEDA Fall Symposium with Charlotte, October 13-14.
“Showstoppers” is a 24” x 24” acrylic on museum wrapped canvas and autographed by Charlotte!
Proceeds from the painting will benefit both the New England Dressage Association (NEDA) and Brooke USA, an organization that is close to the hearts of both Bishop and Dujardin. Bishop has historically donated works to raise funds for Brooke USA, while Dujardin has been a Global Ambassador of Brooke (in U.K.) since 2015. Notecards of the painting will be available for purchase with proceeds benefitting Brooke USA, as well as Limited Edition prints, numbered and signed by the artist.
“I'm a huge fan of Charlotte's. I mean really…who isn’t?!” said Bishop with a laugh. “NEDA is an amazing organization, with dedicated riders and owners, and Brooke USA is near and dear to my heart. It’s the perfect trifecta for me and I’m thrilled to be part of it!"
“We deeply appreciate the combined effort, talent, and generosity of NEDA, Charlotte Dujardin, and Lisa Marie Bishop in raising funds for Brooke USA at the Fall Symposium, so we can continue funding equine welfare programs around the world. Events like this are very important in improving the lives of animals and people in the developing world.” said Emily Dulin, Executive Director of Brooke USA.
Pre-orders of the Limited Edition print are now available on LisaMarieEquestrianArt.com. Prints are 11” x 14” giclees on canvas, numbered and signed by the artist. Don’t miss out on owning a piece of art depicting this history-making duo!
