Fantastic news from new AAA member Linda Easter! After an inspiring visit to our annual exhibition in Frodsham, all the way from Southhampton, Linda arrived home to find she has won the Best Amateur Animal and Wildlife category of the Society For All Artists' competition 2015. 'Golden Hare' will be exhibited at 'All About Art' in London in July. In addition, Linda's exquisite work, 'Hedgerow Sparrows', has been Highly Commended in the Leisure Painter competition at Patchings Art Centre, and will be displayed on the website from 4 June, where you can vote for your favourite! Brilliant news, Linda!

Don't forget the AAA Art Fair this Bank Holiday Monday (4 May). We have a great group of talented members from far and wide who will be demonstrating and also selling cards, prints and originals at Castle Park Arts Centre, Frodsham. The annual exhibition is still going strong, and this is a great day out for all the family, as there is a wonderful park and great cafe, too, as well as amazing art work! Opening times, 10 am - 4 pm. Please share this if you can. See you there!

The cost of the ticket is £30 and includes a welcome drink, a three-course dinner with wine, followed by coffee and mints. There will be a raffle, with a donation made to Yorkshire Wildlife Park Foundation, one of our charity partners this year. We will also be awarding the prizes from our annual art competition and we hope to be able to introduce a new prize, the Anne Corless Inaugural Chairman’s Medal, to be presented to an up-and-coming artist who has raised the profile of animal art in the last year.

Please RSVP to dorothy.miller194@btinternet.com and/or julie.cross@btconnect.com by 13 October 2014.

These dinners are always great fun and are open to all who love animal art. I am looking forward to meeting up with old friends and being inspired by all their artistic adventures!

After two very busy days, the exhibition has been hung and is now ready for the Preview Evening on Friday.  Come along if you can. You won't be disappointed!  It is an amazing exhibition, taking up all three galleries and the intermediate areas of Castle Park Arts Centre, Frodsham, Cheshire.  It is on for the next 6 weeks with lots of demonstrations by our artists and a big Art Fair on Easter Sunday.

The Association of Animal Artists offers members exhibition opportunities, workshops, field trips, regular Art Rendezvous days and a plein air group.
Introduction

Association of Animal Artists was founded to offer opportunities and support to artists who have already attained a level of expertise and experience as artists, whether as amateurs or professionals and who wish to promote and exhibit their artwork and further progress their skills. We are all on this artistic journey together and it is the friendship and genuine support that the artists give each other and the charities AAA supports, which is the hallmark of the Association.

 

The Association of Animal Artists offers members exhibition opportunities, workshops, field trips, regular Art Rendezvous days and a plein air group. The ethos of AAA is that all the artists are encouraged to create and exhibit artwork of absolutely any animal; in the air, on the land or in water, in any medium and style. Artists are positively encouraged to explore and enjoy their creativity which leads to varied and dynamic exhibitions. AAA is committed to supporting its animal charity partners and actively works to promote them.
