Saving threatened habitats worldwide

Vanishing Species Exhibition

Bethan McFadden
Date and Time: 
14 - 21 May 2016
The Crypt Art Gallery, Euston, London

Artist Bethan McFadden presents a body of work that reflects on the deteriorating state of the animal kingdom. There are estimates that as many as a million plant and animal species face extinction by the year 2050.

The exhibition featured life sized drawings and sculptures of endangered animals from Britain and around the world, and was presented in collaboration with World Land Trust (WLT).

Bethan’s artworks include pencil drawn birds of prey, clay and mixed media sculptures of primates and a charcoal drawn orang-utan.

Bethan spoke about the purpose of her artwork: “We are losing wildlife at a frightening rate. Thousands of species are vanishing globally every year. This exhibition invites you to stand face to face with animals on the verge of extinction.”

25 per cent of sales from the exhibition will be donated to WLT’s Atlantic Forest conservation project in Brazil.

The works will be displayed at The Crypt Art Gallery, Euston London, from 14 - 21 May 2016
