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.

Allison Pasarew wraps, weaves & "sews" her sculptures using impossibly thin wire repurposed from today’s broken & replaced technology. Here Allison stands with her, very impressed, Dad.

If you’re wondering why these two creative, dynamic artists are standing so close (in COVID times) it’s because they share a bubble! Stephanie Boyer and Andrea Boyer Sauer are mother & daughter! How lucky is HorseSpirit?! Andrea dropped off her work and met her mom for an in-car picnic with homemade sandwiches! Talk about creative, check out more of their work…
