For the first time in its 50 year history the Society has produced its very own book of members' work.
This stunning new book celebrates contemporary art inspired by nature. It showcases the breadth of talent, creativity and the very high standard of contemporary British artists working in the field of wildlife art today. With almost 60 works included, every page is illustrated with a commentary by each artist on how and why their art was made. This gives a vivid insight into their many artistic journeys and styles, including sculpture, hand-made prints and paintings in a variety of mediums.
- Introduction by naturalist and broadcaster Chris Packham,
- Founder and past President Robert Gillmor gives an insight into the history of the Society,
- Current President Harriet Mead writes about the Society as it reaches its 50th year,
- Former President, Bruce Pearson looks to the future and how funds raised through this book could help emerging artists and conservation.
The book was inspired by the annual original artwork draw of donated work by Society members to help fund their organisation. This is the first time the Society has published members' work in one volume. The Natural Eye Art Book One is the first in a series to be published biennially, to appeal to collectors, naturalists and art enthusiasts alike.
