Attenborough Exhibits Michael Warren Originals

As part of a special Anniversary weekend at Attenborough Nature Reserve, internationally renowned Nottinghamshire based wildlife artist Michael Warren will be exhibiting a selection of original artwork at the Attenborough Nature Centre including fourteen specially commissioned pieces featuring Attenborough and other Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust reserves.

The exhibition will run over the Bank Holiday weekend from Saturday April 30th to Monday May 2nd and a proportion of the revenue from sales will go directly towards management at Attenborough Nature Reserve through the Love Attenborough, Love Wildlife campaign. Other Wildlife Trust reserves featured include Ploughman Wood, near Lowdham, Bunny Old Wood and Besthorpe Nature Reserve near Collingham, Newark.

Speaking about the exhibition, Erin McDaid of Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust said:

“We are really excited about Mike’s exhibition at Attenborough over the reserve’s 50th Anniversary weekend as it features paintings of this much loved reserve and other sites we care for - including a number of images never previously exhibited. Mike’s style really capture’s the essence of a place and his use of colour is wonderful. We hope many people will take an opportunity to view his work and we hope to raise much needed funds to help us care for this special nature reserve in its special year.”

Ahead of the exhibition Mike Warren said: “This exhibition at Attenborough includes fourteen paintings of Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust reserves.  I started this project, making paintings depicting reserves, with work for a successful show in Southwell last summer.   New paintings are from Ploughman Wood, Bunny Old Wood, Farndon Willow Holt, Mons Pool at Besthorpe and Attenborough.  These images give some indication of the wide range of habitats under the protection and management of the Wildlife Trust   Visiting Farndon Willow Holt for the first time I was particularly taken with the 'wooded swamp' habitat.  A very interesting area so close to home.  These paintings explore a wide range of environments and differing seasons, with a taste of the variety species to be seen.”
