Come down to WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre to witness an exhibition by 11 renowned Northern wildlife artists in May.

The exhibition began in mid-April and will continue until the 22nd May, showcasing work from a series of award winning artists such as David Quinn, a former winner of the British Birds Bird Illustrator of the Year Award, Andrew Beckett, who has exhibited his work at places around the world including ‘Birds in Art’ in Wisconsin, USA and the ‘Natural Eye in London, and Thelma Sykes whose passion for printmaking led her to be a founding member of Nature in Art and she was represented in the exhibition of Western printmakers at Chong Qing, China as part of the Millennium International Printmaking Festival.

ots-birds2birds-1Marketing Manager, Victoria Fellowes, said: “This diverse exhibition has everything from pencil, printmaking, watercolour, acrylic, oil, illustration and fine pen on display at the centre offering an exhibition that  has something to cater for all art tastes.  It is a lovely exhibition to browse and with all the artwork available to purchase, you can also support Martin Mere with a percentage of the money going towards the valuable work at the centre.”
