Calling all wildlife artists – this year’s NEWA exhibition runs from July 13th to 29th 2012 and entry registration is open now.
The National Exhibition Wildlife Art (NEWA) has been in existence for an astounding 17 years, and has regularly drawn over 17,000 visitors, making it Britain’s largest open, selling exhibition of wildlife art.
NEWA enables talented newcomers to the wildlife art world to exhibit with long established artists and displays paintings with sculptures, prints, mosaics and mixed media. The first three days of the exhibition, NEWA’s Wildlife Weekend, will also feature informal demonstrations by award winning wildlife artists.
The exhibition is housed at the Gordale garden centre (at Burton on the Wirral) but don’t be put off by the “garden centre” setting. The artwork benefits from the natural light and there is plenty of space to view the art without feeling cramped, even at the busiest times.
Whether you are a collector, artist or simply love to see wildlife art, visit the NEWA website http://www.newa-uk.com to whet your appetite, and then be sure to visit the exhibition in July. If visiting the Wirral isn’t feasible, don’t forget all the work can be viewed and bought online.
If you’re an artist wanting to enter, check out my previous NEWA blog post too. https://garnerwildlifeart.wordpress.com/2011/08/11/national-exhibition-of-wildlife-art-review/
