Announcing this forthcoming exhibition. It runs for 5 weeks so please try and get there if you can... the gardens are pretty good too!
It would be great to see some of you there.
Talk for the South Yorkshire Badger Group
My talk in South Yorkshire on April 26th went very well I think; that, or the audience was very kind. I sold some books but I'm left very depressed at the enormous amount of sett disturbance there, as well as the general persecution by gamekeepers and lowlife on any wildlife, especially that seen as a threat to blood sports.
I'm even more pleased now that through sales of my book The Fate of the Badger we were able to donate £200 to Graham's campaign to help alleviate this huge problem - see (https://uk.gofundme.com/badger-sett-protection-work).
Talk on June 13th at Broomhill Sculpture Park for North Devon Artists (NDA).
Originally planned for February 14th my talk on Wednesday June 13th was very well received and I'm very grateful to all who attended.
It was devoted largely to my fortnight as 'Artist in Residence' at the National Trust's Bucks Mills Cabin on the North Devon coast a year ago, and concentrated on works inspired by the rocky beach.
Our government has escalated badger culling in England this autumn on an industrial scale. Badgers are gone from woods, banks and meadows in a growing series of brutal bloody countryside purges. Bags and piles of mostly healthy badgers are mass-slaughtered using your taxes. Resting on dubious science and decisions. The legally required safeguards on English wildlife from removing our top-tier predator remains hidden from us.
