Brilliant artists depict brilliant creatures in the Chapel Row Gallery's March exhibition of books, prints, paintings and sculpture celebrating the natural world.
There will be meerkats and powder blue surgeon fish by Dafila Scott, daughter of the artist and wildfowl supremo Sir Peter Scott; new paintings from the Galapagos Islands by award-winning artist Darren Rees and brand new prints by Bristol artist Greg Poole from his trip earlier this year to the Kruger National Park.
Somerset printmaker Julia Manning returns to Chapel Row with her fiercely realistic woodblock prints of birds, while Bath sculptor Andrew Hume applies his wit and humour to birds and beasts in three dimensions. Bookbinder Mark Cockram shows how nature is alive and hungry in the book world, while David Koster hits that interesting note somewhere between beauty and ugliness in his large woodcuts of insects.
This is an exhibition for art lovers, book lovers, nature lovers and poetry lovers: the title of the exhibition is taken from a poem by W.B. Yeats titled âThe Wild Swans at Coole'.
