Port Lympne Wild Animal Park in Kent is to hold a 2010 Art Exhibition opened by Vic Reeves
Have you ever dreamt of seeing your artwork prominently displayed for all to see? Well, thanks to Port Lympne Wild Animal Park, that dream can become a reality! The Wild Animal Park, situated near Ashford in Kent, will hold a wildlife art exhibition over the 2010 Easter Break (2nd April-11th April). All budding artists are invited to enter for this fantastic opportunity; it doesn’t matter whether you do stunning sculptures or perfect pictures, all mediums will be considered.
The art exhibition week will commence with a preview evening on Thursday 1st April opened by Vic Reeves—a keen artist himself. Held in the Marquee at Port Lympne, the preview evening will be an excellent opportunity to view the dazzling exhibition pieces that have been submitted. The preview evening is free, but by invitation only. Entry to the exhibition is free to all paying visitors to the Park. A donation from all sales will go towards The Aspinall Foundation to aid their vital conservation work both at home in Kent at Howletts & Port Lympne Wild Animal Parks and abroad.
Vic Sharrat, award-winning wildlife photographer, Chairman of The Wildlife Art Society International and organiser of the art exhibition at Port Lympne said:
“I have been happily associated with Port Lympne for over 10 years. This event will be a completely open exhibition and we are inviting wildlife artists countrywide to submit work for hanging, not only in the standard mediums of paints, but also sculpture and photography. Both the selection and hanging team look forward to viewing the varied work, and, more importantly, raising a lot of money for animal welfare through THE ASPINALL FOUNDATION”
Should you wish to participate in the exhibition or attend the preview evening with Vic Reeves please contact Vic Sharrat. The deadline for submission is the 11th March 2010. Good luck!
