Gallery Urbane will present "Girls and Horses," a solo exhibition of works by Meghan Borah. This is the artist's fifth exhibition with the gallery.

The series broaches a specific trope, that of the female rider on horseback, and yet does so with Borah's customary lightness, delicateness and ambiguity. Primarily, Borah offers simple, frontal depictions of a girl on an equine mount, an image drawn from a long practice of sketching. The composition's spatial qualities, however, resist categorization in canvases such as "Girl and Horse with Pink Flowers" (2023) or "Girl and Horse with Fireflies" (2023), the woman's feet brush and seem to rest upon the edge of the canvas, and the horse's body becomes a kind of dress, a continuation of the rider.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through March 24.
