Trust to hold ‘Wild About Staffordshire’ art exhibition to celebrate 50th anniversary

Artists have just a few weeks left to consider which entries to submit for an art exhibition set up to celebrate a nature conservation charity’s 50th anniversary.

Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, the county’s largest nature conservation charity, is holding its ‘Wild About Staffordshire’ exhibition from Monday 28th October until Tuesday 17th December at the Museum of Cannock Chase. The exhibition will highlight the landscapes, flora and fauna of Staffordshire.

The Trust has had a packed schedule this year for its 50th anniversary, with thousands of people joining the charity at events to celebrate.

Artists are being encouraged to submit all types of visual art, including painting, drawings, photography, textiles and 3D works, as long as they reflect their passion for wildlife.

People can submit their artworks to be considered for the exhibition on 17th, 18th, 19th or 21st October.

Alison Holmes, Commercial Manager for Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, said: “Plans for the exhibition are gathering pace and we’re very much looking forward to the seeing all of the entries.

“It is the final event to celebrate our 50th anniversary this year, which has been a very special one for the Trust.

“The ‘Wild About Staffordshire’ exhibition aims to celebrate 50 years of our charity and the wonderful wildlife and wild places which exist in our county, including at our nature reserves.”
