Art celebrates the ‘comeback’ of otters
9:10am Friday 19th October 2012 in Exhibitions
OTTER sketches by wildlife artist Robert E Fuller will go on sale in a Yorkshire Wolds village next month.
The pictures celebrate the “comeback” of otters from the brink of extinction and will headline an exhibition of wildlife paintings and prints at Robert’s gallery in Thixendale between November 3 and 18.
Mr Fuller said: “Whether you love them or hate them, the fact that otters are now back deserves to be celebrated.” He said their survival in Yorkshire was down to a programme run by a group of conservationists to release wild otters onto the River Derwent and Esk.
The story of how otters are flourishing in the county will be told by a group of experts, including Robert, on November 4, with proceeds going to the Ryedale Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre.
The art show will also include a selection of activities such as birdwatching walks, nature safaris and bushcraft and art workshops and runs at the Robert Fuller Gallery at Fotherdale Farm from 11am to 4.30pm each day.
