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.
