Artist captures
grandeur and fragility

Saviers exhibits sculptures of horses

Express Staff Writer

Inspired by the "paradox that is the horse: the grandeur and fragility, the boldness and quest for flight," Timi Saviers manages to reach her audience in the body of resplendent bronze sculptures. It is the perfect matching of an artist with her subject.

Sun Valley resident Saviers has spent much of her life riding, sketching, painting and reading about her most beloved subject, the horse.

A few of her pieces are currently on exhibit at Strega in Ketchum. Next week, during Gallery Walk even more of her work will be displayed.


While growing up in Southern California Saviers rode bareback in the hills with her sisters as a girl, and showed riding hunters throughout her teens and galloping racehorses at Hollywood Park and Santa Anita. She studied Studio Arts at Loyola Marymount University. As well, her artistic studies have taken her to sculpture workshops in Los Angeles, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and Maine from well known artists such as Forest Hart and Veryl Goodnight. Her work has been displayed at Hollywood Park and Santa Anita racetracks and in private collections.

She now lives and works on her art in Sun Valley, with her husband, daughter, dogs, cats and her Andalusian gelding Tezcat.

"My goal is to capture the movement, gesture, and character of each individual I sculpt, she said. "I am inspired by animals depicted in art through the ages from the cave paintings of Lascaux, the artists of the Baroque and Renaissance, to the more modern art of Sir Alfred Munning. I aim to capture the luminescence and depth of the master painters and sculptors through the patinas on my pieces."

There will be a formal opening of her show at Strega during Gallery Walk on Friday, Feb. 13.
