History was the muse for 16 year old artist Emily Oaks as she undertook to paint one of the 26 life-sized horse sculptures that make up the Headwaters Parade of Horses. Emily will be at the Mono Municipal Office on Friday June 5 for the official unveiling of 'Some Gave All' which she painted over the past two months.
‘Some Gave All’ was inspired by the sacrifices that so many made during the Great War. ‘Some Gave All’ features two silhouettes of battlefield scenes, poppies, barbed wire, the Vimy Ridge Memorial, and the Red Ensign.
The Headwaters Parade of Horses is an undertaking of the Headwaters Equine Leadership Group who are working to position the Headwaters region as a centre of equine excellence in Ontario. According to committee chair, Ross Millar, “the Parade of Horses is a way to highlight Headwaters Horse Country to international visitors during the Pan Am Games, and to showcase the high calibre of artistic talent found in the region.”
‘Some Gave All’ is a permanent fixture at the Mono Municipal Office thanks to the generous support of a group of Mono Residents. The benefactors are Ross Millar, Jim Phillips, Terrance Millar, Jeffery Begg, Frank Tucker, Jorge Bernhard & Graeme Thom.
