World Land Trust Art Gallery specialises in wildlife and landscape art.
The gallery provides a small income for the Trust’s charitable work and, through its programme of temporary exhibitions, the gallery raises awareness of wildlife and landscape conservation.
In 2014 World Land Trust entered into an innovative partnership with the Wildlife Art Gallery, Lavenham. The result has been a series of dynamic and successful exhibitions curated by Andrew and Amie Haslen. The partnership is continuing in 2015.
World Land Trust first opened the gallery in its headquarters in Halesworth, north east Suffolk, in 2011.
WATCHING SPRING - A Celebration of the Season
Photographs by Chris Packham were a special feature of Watching Spring, an exhibition which opened at World Land Trust Art Gallery in Halesworth on 7 May.
7 May - Now extended to 3 July 2015.
Chris is passionate about photography. He told us: “Observing wildlife is an art in itself, and my photography is inspired by the many intimate details of wildlife that I have been privileged to witness.”
The exhibition ran in parallel with BBC2’s Springwatch, which returned to RSPB Minsmere on the Suffolk coast for a second year in May 2015. Chris is a Springwatch presenter and a Patron and long standing supporter of World Land Trust (WLT).
Chris’s new book 100 Things That Caught My Eye is currently on sale in the gallery priced at £20.
This special exhibition, which featured the striking photo-canvas wildlife art by WLT Patron and Springwatch presenter Chris Packham, also showcases stunning new work by artists Steve Cale, Andrew Pitt, Kate and Hannah Breach and Sara Johnson along with Amie Haslen, Dan Bradbury, Robert Greenhalf and photographer David Tipling.
Due to the popularity of the exhibition WLT art gallery is extending the closing date to Friday 3rd July. We hope that many of you who did visit us enjoyed the display and those of you who haven't made it along yet may do so during this extended window of opportunity! The extended display is slightly different to the original exhibition as many of the artworks were sold but there is still a wonderful selection of pictures to enjoy.
Opening hours: World Land Trust Art Gallery is open Monday to Saturday 20 June, 10am - 4pm.
Please note that the gallery will be closed on Thursday 25 and Saturday 27 June.
Coming soon: 'ART IN PRINT' 8 July - 15 August.
