Running until 27 November at Gallery by the Lakes, the event includes several works never seen before here in the UK and introduces two new artists – Dennis Boyd from the States and Sweden’s Gunnar Tryggmo.
Dennis is an award-winning artist who draws inspiration from time spent outdoors in the wide-open spaces of Montana and Wyoming. The gallery is proud to show a selection of his bird paintings, from waterfowl to sparrows.
While Gunnar, an associate member of the Society of Animal Artists, is also perpetually fascinated by animals and birds in their natural environment. For him the wildly varied Swedish landscape, from the coastline to the dense forests of its interior, offers up never-ending inspiration.
Acclaimed sculptor Simon Gudgeon, owner of Sculpture by the Lakes, said: “I am very proud to represent such an outstanding collection of international artists, and to be able to show their work here in what is the largest exhibition space in Dorset
“This exhibition in particular will be a rare treat bringing together as it does a wealth of talent and a diversity of styles from around the world.”
The gallery’s newest artist Tianyin Wang is showing some of his innovative pieces in charcoal which encapsulate his unique style, best described as ‘motion impressionism’. The exhibition also includes new works by Arizona-based artist Andrew Denman. In addition, there are several new pieces by popular gallery artist Julie Brunn.
As well as paintings and drawings FAUNA: Art of the Wild showcases a selection of sculpture, including works by Hampshire’s Adam Roud, the sculptor commissioned to create the statue of Jane Austen for Market Square in Basingstoke to mark the 200th anniversary of her death.
Viewers can see a new contemporary and elegant Cheetah sculpture by Marie Akers, and new pieces by Beatrice Hoffman, with her trademark simplicity and abstraction.
Nestled in the Dorset countryside, Sculpture by the Lakes at Pallington Lakes, near Dorchester, is a popular 26-acre sculpture park offering beauty, peace and tranquillity, and boasts a café, artisan shop as well as the park and gallery.
Gallery by the Lakes is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm and entry to the gallery, shop and café is free. Entry to Sculpture by the Lakes sculpture park is £12.50.
