Wildlife watercolour exhibition

Date Posted: 25/02/2013

An exhibition showcasing watercolours and oils by Roland Green (1890–1972), who was recognised as one of Britain’s most accomplished wildlife artists from the 1920s onwards, will be held at St Barbe Museum & Art Gallery, Lymington, Hampshire from Saturday 27th April until Saturday 8th June.

Living on the Norfolk coast at Hickling Broad, Roland Green specialised in drawing and painting birds as well as illustrating many books on the subject.
To put his work in a contemporary context, painters and printmakers from the Society of Wildlife Artists have also been invited to showcase their work alongside Green who, for some, was a formative influence.

These include Carry Akroyd, Kim Atkinson, Victoria Edwards, Robert Gillmor, Robert Greenhalf, Andrew Haslen, Peter Partington, Nik Pollard, Andrew Stock and Esther Tyson.

Tickets to the Roland Green Tribute exhibition and St Barbe Museum, which is open between 10am and 4pm, Monday to Saturday, cost £2 each for school children aged five to 15.
