I’m pleased to let you know that ‘A Natural History (Part Two)‘ is being shown from the 19th -27th November 2011 at the fabulous Linklater Pavilion, Railway Lane, Lewes, BN7 2AQ. This second exhibition includes new silk-screen and giclée prints that are not only inspired by the diverse wildlife we often see in the British countryside but also includes birds which are very rarely seen in Britain or who are sadly extinct.
In addition to the new bird prints that I have made there will also be a small selection of the limited edition prints from ‘A Natural History’ (Part One)’ together with illustrations that have been used to accompany Michael Blencowe’s fantastic wildlife features in Viva Lewes. Michael will also be giving an illustrated talk (with sound effects!) about the natural history of all the species represented in the exhibition.
And one more thing! A blind auction will be held for the first screen print of the edition of ‘Swift (Apus apus)‘ from which all proceeds will be going to the Sussex Wildlife Trust. Those who are familiar with the work of the Sussex Wildlife Trust, and in particular the Lewes Community Wildlife Project, may be familiar with the design which appears on the website and the monthly newsletter.
The preview of a ‘A Natural History (Part Two)’ will be held at the Linklater Pavilion on the Friday 18th November 2011 from 6.00 – 8.00pm. The fabulous Oyster Project will be providing the bar and music.
The exhibition will be open weekdays between 10.00am – 4.30pm and between 10.00am – 5.00pm at the weekends. Come along if you can make it. See some art, take a look at an inspirational building and reacquaint yourself with the diverse wildlife that can be found in the heart of Lewes!
A map for the Linklater Pavilion can be found here.
Work from ‘A Natural History’ will be part of ‘Art at The Hive‘- an exhibition that features work from both myself and artists Pearl Bates, Adam Chandler, Catherine Grace, Chris Smedley, Patrick Warren and Jason Wilsher-Mills. The exhibition is part of Artwave– Lewes District’s annual Open House Festival that runs from Saturday 27th August until Sunday 11th September.
The work that I am exhibiting will include silkscreen and giclée prints from the first series of ‘A Natural History’ together with a sneak preview from ‘Part Two’ which is due to be shown in November 2011. More details of this show will follow very shortly.
