African wildlife paintings always conjure up that longing for a visit back to the African continent and a hot, humid safari trip to see the maginifcence of the wild animals in their natural habitat. However, we can't all just drop what we are doing and pop over to Kenya or Tanzania for that top up of African culture. To help out, we have decided to hold an exhibition of African art. We can't guarantee hot weather but we can guarantee a warm welcome. On show are six paintings by the artist Donald Currie Grant; we have two of African cats, one of Buffalo and three canvases of Elephants, two of which are an impressive 40 x 60 inches. Of the large paintings one is a magnificent scene showing a herd of elephants on the plain of a snow capped Mount Kilimanjaro. We also have work by Heywood Hardy (Lion Cub), Tony Karpinski (Zebra) and Pip McGarry (Walking Lion) to compliment Donald's work. Also on display are works by Rish Gordon from Australia who grew up in Kenya. Her unique and highly collectable glass etched bowls depicting African animals are really something different. We have ten examples showing lions, tigers, kudu, caracal and elephants. So for that art gallery experience with an African flavour why not call into our gallery in deepest Suffolk for that really different experience.
