Overview

Showcasing the work of leading wildlife artist Robert E Fuller, this gallery is a must for anyone who loves the countryside. Mr Fuller spends months in the field watching and photographing wildlife and this depth of understanding makes his work sing out. Original oil paintings and bronze sculptures of wildlife all come to life through his inimitable, realistic style. The gallery holds two exhibitions a year, at Christmas and during the summer. These usually involve falconry events for kids and nature tours so you can enjoy both the wildlife outside the gallery as well as the paintings of wildlife inside! COMING SOON Summer Exhibition “Bringing up Baby” Sat 3rd June – Sun 25th June Weekday 9.30am-4.30pm Weekends 10.30am-4.30pm Free admission From clucky ducks to pushy owls, this new series of paintings by Yorkshire wildlife artist Robert E Fuller reveals the wildly different ways animals bring up their broods. Painted in a precise, realistic style, the new art range includes TV screens streaming live footage from cameras hidden in the nests of garden birds, owls, weasel and stoats. These screens offer visitors to the show a direct window into the secret world of these creatures as they cope with the daily parenting challenges; from messy mealtimes to sibling rivalry.Video clips taken from footage gathered from these cameras have informed Robert Fuller's new collection of paintings and are on show alongside the artist's photographic studies of the different parenting styles of animals. Birdwatching walks and kids safaris to see badger cubs and owl chicks accompany the exhibition. ACCOMPANYING EVENTS (PLEASE BOOK THESE VIA THE GALLERY WEBSITE) Sun 4th June 10am-11am Kids!
