Polish-American, (b. 1953)

Polish-born artist, Andre Pater first came to the United States in 1981 after graduating from Krakow Academy of Fine Arts and cites Sir Alfred Munnings as his greatest inspiration. Pater has been painting in Lexington, Kentucky for over twenty years exemplifying his use of light, movement, and superb draughtsmanship. The horse capital of the world has been a heavenly environment for the Sporting Artist. Its landscape of scenic winding farms with horses and cattle grazing in the pastures, Keeneland Racetrack, lush hunt country, and international sporting events like the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event are only a few of the endless inspirations Pater has found in the Bluegrass region.

Thanks to a strong following of committed and passionate equine art lovers and collectors, Andre Pater’s 1998 Cross Gate Gallery show and 2002 London show- also presented by Greg Ladd of Cross Gate Gallery- had sold out prior to their opening nights.

Pater’s oils, pastels, charcoals, gouaches and limited edition prints can be found in numerous private and corporate collections all over the world. His works have been at Sotheby’s and shows regularly at Cross Gate Gallery in Lexington, Kentucky and Saratoga Springs, New York.
