16th Annual Exhibition!!


Europe’s largest annual exhibition of wildlife art takes place in the beautiful venue of Rookesbury Park, Wickham, Hants at the end of August 2014. It is the yearly exhibition of the artists and sculptors of Marwell international Wildlife Art Society (MIWAS). There will be more than 600 paintings and sculpture on display from over two hundred participating artists. Complementing the main exhibition and housed in the stunning facility of Rookesbury Manor is a ‘live’ indoor Art Market where you can meet and chat with the artists and watch demonstrations of painting and sculpting. There are lovely tea rooms adjacent with hot food and refreshments available where you can have a sit down before re-visiting the show.

This is one the Europe’s most prestigious exhibitions, displaying the work of some the UK’s leading professional and amateur artists and sculptors, with many beautiful works for sale.

On the evening of Thursday 28th August there is a ‘Special Guest’ evening and private viewing, with an official opening by fine art auctioneer John ‘The Hammer’ Cameron (from ‘Cash in the Attic’


television fame) and a presentation of the MIWAS awards, plus the launch of the new charity ‘MIWAS WildSave’ (by invitation only). On Friday 29th there is an evening Art Market and private viewing (ticket only), allowing an early view of the Art Market and main exhibition. There is FREE parking and FREE entry each day!
