The Natural Eye, the annual exhibition of the Society of Wildlife Artists, showcases the very best of fine art inspired by the natural world. Renowned for displaying a wide-ranging collection of exciting and thought-provoking work including sculpture, printmaking, painting and drawing, there will always be something to delight and inspire you.

The Out of the Frame room celebrates the tradition of working from life and will show a selection of field sketches and project work from member artists.


The Natural Eye 2019 is sponsored by Terravesta, world leading Miscanthus specialist. Terravesta is replacing the global dependence on fossil fuels with Miscanthus - a sustainable solution to our planet’s environmental needs.
