An exhibition of original paintings and limited edition prints by internationally acclaimed Yorkshire wildlife artist Robert E Fuller is to open at Pocklington Arts Centre this week.
The exhibition, which runs from Wednesday 5 December to Tuesday 29 January, will also feature the best of his work on luxury tableware including bone china mugs, placemats, coasters and lap-trays plus greetings cards, giving everyone the chance to purchase unique, and highly collectible Christmas gifts.
Robert Fuller is one of Britain’s foremost wildlife artists. Using acrylics and oils, and favouring a highly detailed, realistic style Robert creates stunning paintings that perfectly reflect the behaviour and character of his wild subjects.
Regarded as an expert on wildlife matters, Robert is a television regular and his unique footage of animal behaviour has been broadcast on primetime TV programmes, including the BBC’s Springwatch, The One Show and Countryfile.
He is also a Yorkshire Post Country Week columnist.
PAC director Janet Farmer, said: “It is an absolute privilege to host an exhibition by an artist of Robert Fuller’s calibre.
“Robert has a world class reputation for his incredible wildlife paintings, and quite rightly so, and we know that not only will our studio be brought to life by his work but it’s going to be incredibly popular.
“We are looking forward to welcoming everyone to PAC to browse Robert’s latest works and pick up a truly special, unique Christmas gift at the same time.”
Without doubt, Robert’s intimate understanding of British wildlife was shaped by his upbringing on a farm on the Yorkshire Wolds, close to where he still lives, and many of his paintings feature the wildlife he finds on his doorstep.
But his scope is global, and each year he travels overseas to study different wildlife in its native habitat.
A Robert E Fuller painting is increasingly collectible the world over. Every year around 7,000 visitors make their way to his gallery in Thixendale to see his paintings, limited edition prints and stunning giftware ranges.
As well as his fantastic artwork, secretive wildlife such as barn owls, kestrels, tawny owls and stoats can be viewed on screens in the gallery that relay all the latest action from live hidden cameras.
