The Horse and Art Research initiative is a unique residency program for artists interested in combining equine knowledge and visual arts. We are looking for artists, art historians and researchers, who are interested in horses and the place of the horse in art. The intensive summer courses include theory, lectures, talks and discussions, daily practice and lessons of horsemanship, horsearchery and riding, as well as there is an opportunity to make studio based work and to exhibit.
One of the most beautiful small villages of the Balaton-Upperland in Western Hungary is the village of Barnag. It is situated ca. 15 minutes by car from the university town of Veszprém, from Lake Balaton, from Balatonfüred, from Tihany Penninsula, one of the favorit holiday locations of Hungarians and tourists coming from abroad. The residency is located at a 19. century small holding with its stables, grazer, with traditional yurts, summer studios, guest rooms, communal dining room and lectures can be held in a renovated barn. We have an official horsearchery track and an arena neighbouring a 40 hectare land with forest and park land, which is available for the horses all day long.
