Every winter Pollyanna Pickering opens her private gallery for an exhibition of paintings inspired by her love of British Wildlife.
This year the artist is staging a very special event to commemorate the 60th exhibition in her gallery at Brookvale House, Oker, near Matlock.
Visitors can view over 50 original paintings on display to the public for the very first time. Pollyanna will be on hand throughout and will be pleased to chat to visitors about her work and the wildlife which inspires her.
To celebrate this very special landmark exhibition, one of the original paintings on display will include a real diamond mounted as part of the picture! So one very lucky buyer will own a genuine diamond as part of their chosen artwork.
There will also be a competition to ‘Find the Diamond’ for a small entry fee everyone will be able to test their powers of observation – and the first correct answer drawn from the hat following the exhibition will win a unique prize. All proceeds will go to wildlife conservation through The Pollyanna Pickering Foundation.
Among the paintings on display there will be the opportunity to view the painting of a Barn Owl which was short listed for the 2017 Landscape Artist of the Year award, as well as the study which was awarded the Gold Medal for Best Painting of 2017 by the Association of Animal Artists.
All of her books will be available, and Pollyanna will be happy to sign copies purchased during the event.
Two new signed limited edition prints will be exclusively launched during the exhibition.
The exhibition runs from November 18-December 3. from 10am-6pm. For more details go to http://www.pollyannapickering.co.uk
