Residents in the Moorlands are being invited to get out and about to capture scenes at natures reserves and then enter an exhibition to help a wildlife charity celebrate its 50th anniversary.
Staffordshire Wildlife Trust is celebrating it’s 50th anniversary this year with a packed schedule of events including ‘Wild About Staffordshire – Celebrating 50 Years of Staffordshire Wildlife Trust’ – an open art exhibition which will run from October to December at the Museum of Cannock Chase.
The display is set to include landscapes, flora and fauna of Staffordshire, and the trust is encouraging people to consider entering a piece of visual art for the exhibition – including paintings, drawings, photography, textiles and 3D works.
People will be able to submit their entries in October.
Alison Holmes, Commercial Manager at Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, said: “Artists are encouraged to visit some of the trusts 27 nature reserves, be inspired and capture what is beautiful about these special places in their finished pieces.
“The exhibition is free to enter and we are hopeful of receiving a good range of artwork which we can show proudly at the art exhibition later this year.
“The aim of the Wild About Staffordshire exhibition is to celebrate 50 years of our charity.
“We have got so much planned to mark this special year and we are really looking forward to the art exhibition.
“We are hoping it will inspire artists to visit our reserves and capture what is so special about them.”
