Kim’s piece titled “Dos Escamaruzas” (pictured below) was awarded a Juror’s Merit Award at the 18th Annual Rio Brazos Art Exhibition this week. The exhibition and sale runs from April 12-26th at the Dora Lee Langdon Cultural & Educational Center Concert Hall in Granbury, Texas.
The Escaramuza represent the female side of horsemanship in Hispanic history. Beautifully dressed in colorful dresses with dazzling silver accents and wide brim sombreros, the women perform daring and risky precision horse ballets in a synchronized pattern. A documentary called Riding from the Heart was done on a team of first generation Mexican American horsewomen representing California and the U.S. at the National Charro Championships in Mexico.
