Talk : A Brush with Wildlife
Details : Hagley Art Club are pleased to invite guests to join them for an evening with Pollyanna. This local friendly club caters for everyone interested in painting and art whether as an active artist or otherwise, and for all skills and interests.
In this talk, Pollyanna takes a light-hearted look at her life and work in the beautiful Peak District of Derbyshire.
Pollyanna’s work as a wildlife artist has always brought her into close contact with real birds and animals, and for fifteen years she ran a small sanctuary at her home to care for and rehabilitate injured wildlife. It was initially intended that she would care for owls, hawks, and falcons, but over the years she looked after many other birds and animals including foxes, squirrels hedgehogs and many more!
In A Brush with Wildlife she tells the heart warming and often amusing stories of just a few of the many hundreds of creatures that passed through her care, and of course shows a selection of the sketches and paintings for which she is so renowned.
