Seen in our cover picture is Paul Beattie, Association of Animal Artists Member and a Professional Artist with the Society for All Artists.  Paul was interviewed at our summer exhibition 2013; ‘Animals in Art’ (which has now closed) by the Society For All Artists who spent the day filming for ‘A Splash of Paint’ which was shown on the Painting and Drawing Channel on Sky TV.  The film (in two parts) will be shown on our up and coming AAA YouTube Channel!

Artwork seen in the insert is by Gill Fox (top) and Michael Miller (bottom).

Photographs by Peter Drought Photography. Peter is AAA Webmaster and also the Treasurer of the North West Branch of the Fine Art Trade Guild, of which AAA is also a member.

‘AAA Artists create Art with a Purpose’ 

As the AAA Annual exhibition approaches, it’s time to celebrate what makes AAA so special!

We are unique in that, not only do we welcome work of ANY animal, be it mammal, bird, reptile, fish or even insect, but, importantly, we also include the domestic animals we share our lives with, such as dogs, cats, horses and farm animals.

We are unique in that we encourage many sub-genres of animal art. Yes, wildlife art has a long history, often as a means of scientific documentation with extreme anatomical accuracy, hence the realism and minute detail of much beautiful wildlife art of the past and present day. Such mastery of technique and skill often seeks not only to inform the viewer but to delight the eye.

However, wildlife and animal art today has burgeoned and now encompasses many more exciting sub-genres.

We are unique in that, from our very beginnings, we have positively welcomed and encouraged not only the depiction of the essential qualities of our animal subjects, but originality of approaches and individual styles. Expressive, painterly works are very much welcomed alongside the perennially popular, traditional forms of detailed animal art. We want artists who are inspired and have something to say!

And we at AAA do have something to say. We also want to look beyond the artwork and see what our art can do – it truly is art with a purpose. AAA exhibitions openly support our animal welfare and wildlife conservation charity partners by giving charitable donations, but we do so much more. AAA members also have a valuable role in not only supporting these charities, but in giving voice to the issues they promote, raising public awareness and helping us to celebrate and also preserve the animal kingdom that inspires our art – and that really is special.

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.
