Exhibition: Autumn Exhibition of the Association of Animal Artists

Date: 31st August – 27th September

Venue: The Granary Gallery, Weston Park Weston-under-Lizard, Shifnal, TF11 8LE


 Details : A selection of Pollyanna’s  recent original artwork will be included  in the society’s autumn exhibition.  The Pollyanna Pickering Foundation Calendar will also be on sale throughout the event.


The AAA are unique in that they welcome and exhibit work of any animal – mammal, bird, reptile, fish or even insect – but, importantly, they also include the domestic animals we share our lives with, such as dogs, cats, horses and farm animals.

With its classical architecture, set in stunning ‘Capability’ Brown parkland, Weston Park is the beuatiful location for the AAA exhibiton.  Originally built in 1767, the Art Gallery was unused for many years before becoming the subject of a total and most sympathetic restoration, thanks to support from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Now set beneath a splendidly characterful old beamed roof, you’ll find the Art Gallery in the building that houses the Granary Grill where visitors can also enjoy a coffee and homemade cake or lunch.

Admission to the exhibition is free
