The open exhibition shows a wide range of contemporary work from both members and non-members which celebrates the wild whether it is close to home or further afield. The different approaches to the subject ensures a delightful mix of the detailed to the more abstract in many different media including oils, watercolours, pastels, printmaking, drawing and sculpture.  

There will be a number of events held during the exhibition including artist’s talks, portfolio day and printmaking workshops. For more details, visit: www.swla.co.uk
