The Society of Wildlife Artists’s will be holding an exhibition in the SOC’s Donald Watson Gallery, 17th February-4th April 2018. Donald was a founder member of the SWLA and 2018 is the centenary of his birth. The gallery also had very close associations with John Busby, another founder member.

This is a wonderful opportunity to see the Society’s work in a new part of the UK and the exhibition will showcase a broad range of contemporary wildlife art with particular focus on some of the recent projects that the Society has been involved with, including the BTO’s Flight Lines book, illustrated by members of the SWLA.
