Details: All are welcome to this talk, which is a special event organised by the Palterton Village Residents Association, who have invited Pollyanna back to join them for a second time following a very enjoyable evening held last year.
Join Pollyanna as she tells the story of a remarkable journey into China to paint Giant Pandas
Accompanied by her daughter and business partner Anna-Louise, she travelled into one of the remotest areas of the Tibetan Borderlands in her quest to paint one of the most iconic and elusive of all animals. The two became the first western women ever to travel into an isolated mountain reserve, where they were lucky enough to be able to work in a small hospital for sick pandas, bringing them into remarkably close contact with one of the rarest animals on earth. This enchanting talk tells the story of their journey – from the hardships and frustrations to the lasting friendships made in this enigmatic and beautiful country, and shows the spectacular award-winning paintings which resulted from the trip.
Thanks to a special grant the residents association are able to open this evening to guests for free. A light buffet will be included, there will be a bar available, and a raffle will be held on the evening.
