Art keeps the pace

The Arts Council of Surrey's annual 'Pacer'Competition featured original artwork inspired by the sport of harness racing.

Pictured here is 'Here's Looking at You'

And the winners are… original artworks by Surrey artists depicting “pacers”, the plucky Standardbred horses which thrill harness racing fans each weekend at Fraser Downs Raceway and Casino.

Cloverdale’s historic raceway hosted the Arts Council of Surrey‘s 2012 Pacer Competition, an annual art competition.

Pictured here is ‘Here’s Looking at You’, an acrylic by Gerrie Mufford, left, and ‘1, 2, 3,’ – a digital image work by Brianne Hemingway.

The awards were held Nov. 11, and the exhibit ran Nov. 9-19 at Fraser Downs.
