Leslie Hudson-Tolles of North Carolina will return to the northeast next week for "Equine Expressions", a show of equine art at Koenig's FrameWorks that includes Hudson-Tolles, Adele Goodman, and Shelley Hunter

Leslie Hudson-Tolles is a nationally recognized Equine Artist who works in pastel, pencil and colored pencil, monoprints, block prints and painting. Her knowledge of horses, and mastery of technique create nearly human expressions in those big eyes, and attitude in their demeanor. 

Hudson-Tolles was based in Newtown, Connecticut for 32 years until a relocation a couple of years ago. She will be signing prints at the opening reception on Thursday, July 8, from 6-8 pm.

Adele Goodman works in pastel, and is from Mooresville, North Carolina. Shelley Hunter is a bronze sculptor from Lexington, Kentucky. Their work harmonizes with Hudson-Tolles' perfectly, in that they are not mere illustrators. They use their selected mediums with an eye toward creating emotion and motion.

The show runs from July 8 until August 6. Koenig's Picture Framing and Art Gallery is located at 97 South Main St. (Route 25), Newtown, CT. Opening July 8, 6-8 pm.
