The Eric Liddell Centre is gearing up to host an exhibition by award winning artist John Threlfall.
John has been a member of the Society of Wildlife Artists (SWLA) since 2007. He is also a member of the Artists’ for Nature Foundation (ANF) and is a previous winner of the Swarovski/Birdwatch Magazine Bird Artist of the Year.
His work has also yielded commissions including hide murals for the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds at Mersehead, Dumfries and Galloway and Lochwinnoch, Ayrshire; and murals and illustrations for the National Trust for Scotland at Grey Mare’s Tail, Threave and Rockcliffe.
“I draw and paint direct from nature as much as I can. It is my way of connecting with the non-human species with which we share this planet and the many varied landscapes and habitat we all rely upon.
“I do however, hugely enjoy working in the studio, giving licence to the imagination, memory and emotion, contemplating aspects of composition, colour and mark making and the creation of something new that embraces wholly the initial experience but then takes that further, strengthening the intention, and hopefully awakening a response in the viewer.”
John MacMillan, Chief Executive of the Eric Liddell Centre, said:
“We’re very excited to be hosting John’s work here at the Centre and would encourage all to visit and enjoy his excellent portfolio.”
The exhibition opens on Saturday 6th July and runs until Wednesday 31st July with viewing times at the Eric Liddell Centre varying.
