Wildlife Art Exhibition

Wildlife Art Exhibition

National Treasures: What animal or bird is your national treasure. Come and help us celebrate Britains wildlife heritage with wildlife artist Robert E Fuller.


See paintings, photographs and short films of stags, owls, foxes and more at this exquisite art and photography exhibition celebrating the very best of British wildlife.
Artist Robert E Fuller is one of Britain's foremost wildlife. He uses fine brushstrokes to create exquisite, detailed works of art that extol the beauty of commonplace creatures like owls, foxes, hares, kestrels, stoats and squirrels.

"People travel abroad to watch wildlife and yet we have stunning animals right here in Britain," says Robert. "This exhibition celebrates the very best of our wildlife. I hope by giving my favourite wild creatures a place in the spotlight this will encourage people to treasure it."It includes a startlingly lifelike collection of paintings and limited edition prints of wildlife watched across the UK.

There are renditions of red stags spotted in Scotland, buzzards seen in Wales, and kestrels, stoats and owls observed in the artist's own garden in Thixendale.
"People travel abroad to watch wildlife and yet we have stunning animals right here in Britain," says Robert.

"This exhibition celebrates the very best of these natural treasures."
Robert, who paints mainly in oils and acrylics, goes to extraordinary lengths to study animals in their natural habitat in order to capture the essence of his wildlife characters.
Among the animals featured in his new collection is a red squirrel scampering across a tree branch, a badger cubs tumbling along beside their mother, and a robin perched amidst glistening hawthorn berries.

Wildlife Film & Photography
The event inlcudes Robert's exceptional photographic and film studies. Robert has twice won recognition in the British Wildlife Photography Awards and his wildlife films have earned him more than 26k subscribers on his YouTube channel.

Live Nest Cameras
The event includes live video feeds from cameras hidden throughout his garden offering visitors the opportunity to glimpse owls, kestrels, weasels and stoats as they go about their secret lives.

These live streams, which in winter time reveal nail-biting territorial battles between owls and kestrels, offer an experience akin to being on the set of Springwatch.

Wildlife Stories
Storyboards detailing Robert's research into animal behaviour are also part of the display. They tell the story of how the artist gets up close to creatures in the wild and the behaviour that he observes. Many of these tales are also shared on his blog, which to date has more than 65k readers.

Choose your own natural treasure
Visitors to the event will be encouraged to choose their favourite wild creature from Robert's artworks. The best of a shortlist of 25 will be 'Crowned for Christmas' and remain on show until Christmas Day.

Open studio
Robert's studio will be open throughout the exhibition so that visitors can see how translates his photographs and video into stunning artwork. He will also be on hand to talk about his work and some lucky visitors may even get to watch him at work.
