Nature and wildlife exhibition in Oswestry

By Aimee Jones | North Shropshire entertainment | Published:

If you're passionate about nature and wildlife there's a new art exhibition for you.

New exhibition at Oswestry Visitor & Exhibition Centre. Jo Halden, a Watercolour painter.

The latest display at Oswestry Heritage and Exhibition Centre features the work of Jo Halden and Pam Rundle.

Jo, from Ightfield near Whitchurch, is a self-taught artist who paints realistic watercolour pieces and is inspired by people, animals and the Shropshire landscape.

"I've been painting forever," she said. "I've got 15 paintings hanging up for the month-long exhibition and there are some other unframed pieces too."

Pam, who lives in Powys with her husband and four dogs, is showing off her wildlife sculptures.

The unique hand-built sculptures are made using thin slabs and small pieces of clay and built up over a newspaper base like a puzzle or mosaic.

Her sculptures have been sold as far afield as Luxembourg, Holland, Germany, Canada, Australia, America and Hawaii, and a portion of each sale Pam donates to wildlife and animal rescue and conservation charities.

Their work will be on display throughout August in the Oswestry Heritage and Exhibition Centre in Church Terrace.
