Georgia Pollock is an oil painter who primarily focuses on horses.   She lives in Rising Fawn, Georgia where she has a small horse farm and art studio.  In 1990 she began going to Pinedale, Wyoming in the summers and fell in love with the West and the Wind River Mountain Range.  Georgia, her husband Mike and their dog Jade spend time in Pinedale every summer and this is where she finds inspiration for her paintings.   Ranch horses, draft horses and working horses find their way onto her canvases in bright and bold interpretations.  The horses in her paintings represent the spirit of the West, vast and limitless like the western sky. 
Georgia graduated from The University of the South in 1992 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.  She received The Sewanee Award for Excellence for her concentration in painting.   After college she worked as a songwriter and musician and managed her own horse training and boarding facility.  In 2006 Georgia started to find time each week to venture out to draw and paint in the field.  One afternoon a week became two afternoons and so on until painting became a full time endeavor.In 2017 Georgia was chosen as an emerging artist for Four Bridges Arts Festival in Chattanooga, Tennessee.  In 2018 and 2019 she was the featured artist in a private exhibit at The Gallery at Hedges Farm in Lookout Mountain, Georgia.   In 2022 two of her paintings were chosen for The Western Spirit Art Show and Sale in Cheyenne, Wyoming.  In July and August Georgia will participate in a show featuring the works of Lookout Mountain artists at The Northside Gallery in Chattanooga, Tennessee.  Georgia has been invited to participate in the Rising Fawn Studio Tour in December of 2023 and will be the featured artist in a private exhibit at The Gallery at Hedges Farm in the spring of 2023.


My passions are oil painting and working with horses and I find that  the two have a lot in common.   Painting and training horses require me to be focused and present.  Both disciplines allow me to get lost in the work.  So, I suppose it is fitting that I have been absorbed and obsessed with trying to capture the magic and majesty of horses on canvas.The horses in my paintings live and work in Wyoming.  Some are a friend’s ranch horses who spend their summers pack tripping in the Wind River Mountains.  Others are draft horses who spend their summers grazing BLM range and winters pulling hay wagons on elk feed grounds.  These are the real working horses of the West.    To me, they are limitless in scale and spirit, vast like the Western sky.
