Few exhibitions can match the scope that the Society of Wildlife Artists Annual exhibition brings in this blissful marriage of nature and art, that opens to the public today. Showcasing the very best of nature inspired fine art that includes amazing sculptures, drawings and printmaking along side paintings, in both the medium of oil and water colours.

But as always there is an important secondary agenda, the Society tries to promote though the eyes of the artists the beauty of our natural world and to increase public awareness of the importance of conservation in order that we may maintain the delicate ecosystems of our ever toxic planet and where possible to slow down the frightening increase in the extinction many of the worlds wild creatures.

The Out of the Frame room is a celebration of the skills of working from life in a natural setting and show a selection of sketches, that demonstrate the process of creating art away from the comfort of the controlled environment of a studio. This process unlike photography involves a far greater relationship with the subject, over a far greater time span to capture not just the image but the character of the animals.

 

The Mall Galleries have a long historic and emotional connection with the Natural Eye exhibition that this year celebrates its 55th year of bringing the world of art and nature together under one roof. The exhibition itself features over 350 catalogued works, plus unframed works and projects in the Out of the Frame display room. This is must see event for anyone with a passion for both fine art and animals in a natural setting.
