The Lake District Osprey Project is marking the start of its fifteenth season by holding an art exhibition at Whinlatter Visitor Centre called “Celebrating Ospreys”. The exhibition showcases paintings and 3-D work created by the Independent Cockermouth Artists’ group and long term volunteer Ralph Bell.
Keith Fitton, artist in residence for the project said that the exhibition was aimed at highlighting the link between wildlife and art, whilst at the same time promoting the invaluable work done by the project team and volunteers for ospreys. A percentage of the proceeds from any sales will go to help fund the project’s work.
The exhibition runs from the 1st to the 30th April. Everyone is invited to spend some time appreciating the artwork, and if it takes their fancy, having a go at still life drawing at the pop–up sketching station.
