HorseSpirit Arts Gallery

Historic Savage Mill, Savage, MD

Welcome to HorseSpirit Arts Gallery, founded in 2013 as the fulfillment of a lifelong dream of owner and curator, Robin Holliday.

“I wanted the gallery to be a place of refuge, a sanctuary from the outside world.
My hope is that people find art in the gallery that speaks to them… means something to them…
and then take it home to their sanctuary.”

Robin designed HorseSpirit Arts Gallery to reflect her beliefs. In hopes of allowing people the opportunity to remember the goodness and beauty of life, she only carries “uplifting art” and selects local artists who are not only talented, but also kind souls.

“I believe that by connecting with the goodness in life, we can find the best instantiation
of ourselves… to become the people we always hoped we would be… and offer whatever strength and light
we have within ourselves to help others find their way.”

Our Story/Our Resilience
HorseSpirit Arts Gallery opened as a small, one-room gallery where Robin exhibited her own artwork and that of a few other local artists. In 2015, she moved HorseSpirit Arts Gallery to Main Street in Old Ellicott City, MD. On Main Street, the gallery grew to represent over 40 local artists. After suffering significant losses in two devastating floods in 2016 and 2018, Robin made the heartbreaking decision to leave Old Ellicott City.

In November 2018, she reopened HorseSpirit Arts Gallery at Historic Savage Mill, in Savage, MD where she now represents over 45 local artists in a beautiful, large, open space. The eclectic art collection includes paintings, sculpture, photography, glass, mosaics, jewelry, ceramics, woodworking, and fiber and wearable art. In this new location, HorseSpirit Arts Gallery also offers a wide variety of art classes, taught by the gallery’s artists.

HorseSpirit Arts Gallery has been recognized as a contributor to the local and regional arts:
• 2019 – Baltimore Sun’s “Best of Howard County” for Best Art Gallery
• 2018 – Howard County Arts Council “HOWIE” Award for “Outstanding Business Supporter of the Arts”
• 2016 – Baltimore Sun’s “Best of Howard County” for Best Art Gallery

Our Values
• We believe art reminds us of the goodness of life; inspires us to achieve new, amazing things; can help heal a broken spirit.
• We recognize the uniqueness and beauty of works of art and that art is not just viewed, it is experienced.
• We value integrity and a genuine spirit.
• We value our gallery artists not only for their exceptional talent but also for their kind and generous hearts.

HorseSpirit Arts Gallery is a community where artist display and sell their work, support one another, and work together to bring uplifting art to their community and beyond.

Our Team
Our dedicated team warmly welcomes customers and creates an environment where they can explore the gallery’s wide variety of art (mediums, styles, perspectives, price range, etc.).

We want our customers to find art that speaks to them and that they are thrilled to take home. We also want customers find meaningful gifts for their friends and loved ones.

Did you know we have an upstairs? Be honest…
Multi-talanted artist Chris Guercio, best known for her fused glass work, completed "Jewel Swatch" the stair riser installation, which leads all to more art in HorseSpirit’s loft gallery.

Whether she’s taking us to the feet of redwood giants in "Muir Woods", or shrinking our view – making us look up to diminutive "Fairy Cap" mushrooms – artist Linda Schisler takes us to inspiring heights with her photography.
Linda entered HorseSpirits’ Perseverance Artist Show, and shared with us the perseverance it takes to capture her (mushroom) images… "There is a large fallen tree in the forest next to my home. Over the years it has become an ecosystem for plants, bugs, and small woodland creatures. That is my go to place for my mushroom photos. I scope it out every day for their arrival and note the time for perfect lighting. The sun hits the side of the tree where the mushrooms like to grow about an hour before sunset. I set up my camera early and wait for it. Sometimes in the quiet I will be visited by the doe and her twins. One of these days I’ll get that shot too." -Linda Schisler

Pastel artist Tara Will signed her featured article in Plein Air Magazine yesterday when she dropped off ELEVEN new pieces!
Come visit her work and enjoy what writer Bob Bahr calls Tara’s “confident use of color and bold mark-making…” Robin is hanging them on the walls now! Tara is a regular at plein air events, preferring to be outside, she says “The light is always better… You learn so fast when you paint outside. You have to improvise and figure it out. It’s like immersions in a language.”
