Association of Animal Artists exhibit work at WWT Martin Mere

30th January 2015

Join the Association of Animal Artists as they display a selection of their work at WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre this February and March.

The association will be showcasing a wide selection of work, from water colours, to collages and various other types of wildlife themed art from both amateur and professional artists alike.

As part of this year’s exhibit, both Julie Cross, who is a two time winner of the BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year award in the World Mammals Category and last year she was awarded the Wildlife Art Society’s Christopher Parsons Award for Artistic Excellence and Su Melville, who won a prize in the Association of Animal Artists’ annual competition in 2014, will be hosting informal demonstrations of their work from 10 am – 3pm in the exhibition hall on Saturday 14th February.

The association was founded in 2009 and was set up to support animal artists in order to promote and exhibit their artwork. The AAA will be showcasing a vast selection of their work daily in the exhibition hall near the main admissions desk on your way into the centre.

Last year’s exhibition was a huge success, with the AAA generating over £2500 over its two month display.

The exhibition comes as a great way to spend your day at Martin Mere, allowing you to come in from the cold after the swan feeds and allows you to experience the best that these award winning talent artists have to showcase.

WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre is open every day (except Christmas Day) from 9.30am to 4.30pm during winter months and parking is free of charge. Situated off the A59, it is signposted from the M61, M58 and M6.  The Centre is also accessible via the Southport to Manchester and the Liverpool to Preston line by train from Burscough Rail Stations.  Visit the web site to find out what’s on all year round at Martin Mere and the other eight WWT Wetland Centres.
