This exhibition focuses on work by artists from East Anglia and Paraguay, recording the wildlife and landscapes locally and internationally. Included are a group of drawings by indigenous Paraguayan artists, providing a wonderful visual expression of the landscape, flora and fauna of the region. WLT has been supporting conservation in Paraguay for nearly a decade, during which time the Trust has helped create three reserves covering very different habitats, one in the Dry Chaco, one in the Chaco-Pantanal, and one in the Atlantic Rainforest.
British artists who have visited WLT’s overseas project areas are also include Steve Cale, Lesley Wood, Martin Woodcock, as well as WLT Trustee Bruce Pearson and Mark Carwardine, a WLT Council member. Also on display will be works by East Anglian artists, Kate and Hannah Breach, Elizabeth James and two pictures by Noelle Francis: Noelle’s canvases show longhouses in Borneo painted on a visit to Malaysian Borneo. They are highly relevant to WLT’s work at present as the Trust recently launched the Borneo Rainforest Appeal: aiming to raise One Million pounds to protect habitat for Orang-utans in Malaysian Borneo.
