Grey Hypocolius and Mesopotamiam Crows
For the past five years the Wildlife Trusts and the Society of Wildlife Artists have offered the opportunity for an artist to learn to dive in order to be inspired to make work in celebration of the life off the UK coast. The artists: Kim Atkinson, Antonia Philips, Anna Kirk-Smith, Esther Tyson and Harriet Mead have got together to show the results of their experiences and will include their underwater drawings and sketches, finished paintings and sculptures. The show will help highlight the extraordinary life off our coasts and the need for Marine Conservation Zones to be designated.

Roland Green, Barnacle Geese
Roland Green (1890 – 1972) was one of Britain’s most accomplished wildlife artists from the 1920s onwards. Living on the Norfolk coast at Hickling Broad, he specialised in drawing and painting birds, illustrating many books on the subject. A founder member of the SWLA this exhibition celebrates his unique place in British wildlife painting with a selection of watercolours and oils.
To put Green’s work in a contemporary context several painters and printmakers from the Society have been invited to show their work alongside Green. Members participating are: Carry Akroyd, Kim Atkinson, Victoria Edwards, Robert Gillmor, Robert Greenhalf, Andrew Haslen, Peter Partington, Nik Pollard, Andrew Stock and Esther Tyson.
