NYRA sponsors the Floral Park Art League's First Annual Equestrian Art Compeption

The Floral Park Art League held its Annual Outdoor Art Show on Belmont Stakes weekend, June 5th and 6th. The show was held in Memorial Park at the Floral Park Village Square and was sponsored by NYRA. Over a dozen member artists exhibited their oil paintings, watercolors and pastels which were displayed along the traditional winding path through the lovely park.
Prior to the opening of the show, members were invited to enter the First Annual NYRA Equestrian Art Competition, and over twenty entries were submitted and judged.
The winner was Nancy Fabrizio for her entry entitled"Stable Chores." Nancy was presented with a certificate of recognition and a NYRA frame which I was very pleased to present to her. "We are grateful to the New York Racing Association for their sponsorship of this event and for their help and support of the cultural affairs and artistic community of Floral Park and the surrounding areas. We wish to thank Joanne Adams, NYRA's Community Relations Director, for her personal attention to and support of our outdoor show," stated Teresa Musolino, President of the Floral Park Art League.
