The Marcus Ashley Gallery is the go-to place to acquire art, whether you’re from out of town or a resident of California. This brick-and-mortar building is often mistaken for a museum, thanks to its spacious interiors. Visitors spend hours exploring the exhibits on display, including Michael Flohr art.
Churchill Downs is a renowned thoroughbred horse racing complex in Louisville, Kentucky. Here is where the prestigious Kentucky Derby was hosted in 1875, giving way to the globally popular series of championships. Flohr’s childhood fascination for thoroughbred horses is evident in his 3-part equine-themed series.
In Churchill Downs, the artist paints a crowd high on adrenaline as they observe jockeys race across the dirt track. If you look closely, you’ll find the artist’s wife (her unmistakable cloche hat pops into view) standing in the box seat. The palatable energy of the arena fills the composition through Flohr’s signature fluid brushwork. A patchwork of cool and dark hues reveals a faceless audience with their eyes glued to the racetrack.
The artist captures the pulsating thrill of 2015 when American Pharaoh won not only the Triple Crown championship but also the Breeders’ Cup Classic. For those who love the sport or majestic steeds, Churchill Downs will be the perfect pick.
