Every winter Pollyanna opens her private gallery for an exhibition inspired by her love of  British Wildlife.

This year Pollyanna is staging a very special event to commemorate the 60th exhibition to which she has welcomed people in her own gallery.  Visitors can view over fifty original paintings on display to the public for the very first time, in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. Pollyanna will be on hand throughout and will be pleased to chat to visitors about her work and the wildlife which inspires her.

Among the paintings on display there will be the opportunity to view the study of the Jacob’s Ram which was awarded the Gold Medal for Best Painting in Show 2017 by the Association of Animal Artists as well as the painting of a Barn Owl which was short listed for the Landscape Artist of the Year award earlier this year.

Visitors will also be able to browse at leisure through the latest additions to Pollyanna’s extensive ranges of greetings cards, fine art and limited edition prints, and a wide variety of gift ware featuring her work – including stationery, jigsaws, tea sets, china mugs, linen ware cross stitch kits, signed sets of her postage stamps issued in Africa, and first day covers for the Royal Mail alongside an exclusive display of the latest selection of gift ware commissioned by Harrods.  All of her books will be available, and Pollyanna will be happy to sign copies purchased during the event. Two new signed limited edition prints will be exclusively launched during the exhibition.  The latest brand new card and paper crafting kits and printable DVDroms will also be available – as launched live on television in a series of regular and increasingly popular programmes featuring Pollyanna live in the studio on the Create and Craft channel!

There will be over 150 Christmas card designs to choose from, including the latest charity cards designed by Pollyanna for the RSPB, Guide dogs for the Blind, The Born Free Foundation, Blue Cross and Marie Curie among many others. New fine art calendars of her work will be available for 2018, along with a range of eco-friendly wrapping paper and cards, and even Christmas decorations featuring Pollyanna’s designs!

Talk: Here be Dragons….

Venue : Sheffield : Methodist Church 8 Stubbin Lane Firth Park Sheffield S5 6QL

14836-007

Details : Pollyanna is pleased to return to the church to present her brand new talk about her most recent expedition into the jungles of Borneo.

Here she journeyed by river boat deep into the rainforests of the Tanjung Puting National Park – one of the world’s only protected areas of tropical jungle. Pollyanna trekked into the forests to visit the rehabilitation centres where many of the orang-utans who have been released back in to the wild visit feeding platforms for meals of milk and bananas. There is nowhere else in the world you can see so many wild orangutans in their natural home – and Pollyanna made the most of this opportunity to fill her sketch folders. She also journeyed to the islands of Komodo in search of the legendary Dragons…..

A fund-raising evening for the church – all welcome. Tickets £5.00 including refreshments.  To book tickets Tel 01142453621 or 01226351897
