The biggest birthday party on the Wirral this summer will celebrate the annual staging of the National Exhibition of Wildlife Art (NEWA), as hundreds of collectors and enthusiasts will be joined by a VIP – studded audience for a charity auction of original art works.
“NEWA has a history of donating to conservation”, says organiser Marion Tuffrey. “But the hope is that July’s auction will go so much further to support the wildlife which has been the inspiration for NEWA of the last 20 years”.
Thirty of the world’s most talented wildlife artists are already engaged in producing paintings which will go to the highest bidder on the night. The auction will take place in parallel with the exhibition preview, on July 18th, at the awarding winning Gordale garden centre.
Your auctioneer for this gala evening will be the irrepressible John Crane, recognisable to millions from his appearances on ‘Dickinson’s Real Deal’. John will be encouraging the invited audience to be generous, as monies raised will go to the Wildlife Trusts, Chester Zoo and African wildlife charity ‘Tusk’.
When the buzz of the auction has subsided, the marquee at Gordale will continue to be a hive of activity. Sixteen wildlife artists will be demonstrating their various skills during each of the first three days of the show, July 19th, 20th and 21st.
The exhibition itself continues at Gordale until Sunday August 4th.
With free admission throughout, and a daily opportunity to win a signed print, NEWA provides an enjoyable day out for all the family.
