Sam Woolcott lives and works in the historic mining town of Bisbee, Arizona where she and her artist husband, Poe Dismuke, run the SamPoe Gallery in the middle of old downtown. For 15 years she has investigated the idiosyncratic nature of local structures and space in her drawings and paintings.
Most recently horses and burros have caught her attention. Horses have long been a part of her life from early trail riding in pony club to show jumping in Connecticut to life on a ranch in Montana.
Now the horses are an inspiration for this new body of work as she looks to their inner workings and inherent beauty. As a metaphor for the spirited nature of life itself, she is letting her imagination and these horses lead the way.
