Art Exhibition Latest

The art exhibition is proving to be an amazing success and is also introducing lots of new visitors the wonderful nature reserve of Swanwick Lakes.

The preview evening was very well attended. During the evening the Deputy Mayor and Mayoress of Fareham enjoyed viewing the artwork and Christina Hart-Davies (Botanical Artist and Illustrator) formally opened the exhibition.

The artwork that has been completed during the artist in residence year was displayed on boards according to the different habitat types found on the reserve. There were also displays of Sarah's sketches of rare and vulnerable plants as well as sketches of wildlife from her trips to New Hampshire and Maine.
The exhibition is on until 5pm tomorrow Sunday 30th October, so why not come along and see the exhibition for yourself ? We look forward to seeing you there !
