Our Studio and Gallery are now in Madison, INDIANA. Open Tuesday thru Saturday.


Fine Artist, Kathryn Rutherford, was recently granted permission to paint one of her original "Spirit Paintings" that depicts the Madison, Indiana, "Homestreet" and "Miss Madison" hydroplane boats.  
Using her own photography as subject matter, the "Homestreet" races into the lead on the Ohio River followed closely by the transparent ghostly image of the 1971 Gold Cup Winner, and hometown favourite, "Miss Madison" driven by Madison resident, Jim McCormick.  This is the boat that captured hearts in real life and in the movie, "Madison" that told the underdog story of "Miss Madison" taking the win at the Gold Cup races with the backing and support of the city of Madison, Indiana.
While the original, 20"x30" oil on canvas painting has been sold, prints are available in multiple sizes and various merchandise items are currently in production.  
A portion of all sales are donated to Miss Madison Inc. as a fundraiser to assist with boat restoration and continued efforts to establish a permanent racing museum to be located in Madison, Indiana.  
Thank you for your purchase and the fundraising support!
