Logging Out By Marilyn Newmark

Marilyn Newmark, East Hills, N.Y., is a sculptor of horses, including race horses and equestrian pieces. She has received commissions to sculpt many famous race horses including Man O’ War, Majestic Light, Triple Crown and Affirmed.

Newmark experienced horses first hand growing up on Long Island in New York, where she continues to keep horses at Marleny Farm. Newmark frequently hacks, drives and shows her horses. She’s also earned her colors with Meadowbrook Hounds (N.Y.) and the Smithtown Hunt (N.Y.).

During her childhood, Newmark sketched horses and began sculpting them during her teenage years. She studied at Adelphi College and Alfred University (N.Y.), later working with the renowned horse illustrator Paul Brown. She used many of his sketches for her final pieces.

She first used the medium of bronze in 1970 and in 1971 won the Anna Hyatt Huntington Award; in 1972 her equestrian scuplture, Hacking Home, was selected as a National Horse Show trophy. This week’s cover features Logging Out, a 4″ x 91⁄2″ x 7″ bronze of two foxes.
