National Exhibition of Wildlife Art

Just sent off my two entries for this year's National Exhibition of Wildlife Art -


Among the Ruins - Short Eared Owl
Face to Face - African Elephant
For those who don't know.... (I quote from the NEWA website)
"The National Exhibition of Wildlife Art is an open annual exhibition based in the North of England.
NEWA was conceived in 1994 by a group of artists interested in depicting wildlife, with conservation as one of their underlying concerns. A donation from the exhibition is made each year to wildlife causes such as the Wildfowl & Wetland Trust and The Wirral Barn Owl Trust.
The aims of the exhibition are to promote and display outstanding examples of wildlife art from both professional and amateur artists.
The huge interest generated by the exhibition among wildlife artists proved that there was a pressing need for this kind of event.
Our exhibition is staged at Gordale Garden Centre which attracts a constant stream of visitors, over 12,000 to our 2007 show. Our new website attracted an overwhelming 12,272 visitors who viewed over 190,000 pages. The website received excellent reviews, calling it the best on line gallery of 2007.
Due to this increasing success entries have risen with each subsequent year. 2007 again saw over 40% of the works on show sold, a very high percentage for any exhibition."
The exhibition runs from Friday 17th July - Sunday 2nd August. For further information, visit the website at http://www.newa-uk.com/ (where you can also purchase works online once the exhibition is running)

Joel, good luck with the exhibition - I'm sure your paintings will be well received.

You've certainly developed a distinctive style which helps your work stand out from the crowd.
