Underwater Art for Action

Underwater Art for Action

Winners of The Wildlife Trusts’ Underwater Art Award are staging a pop-up show beside a Dorset beach after taking the plunge to show the magic of our seas. The works are inspired by the amazing creatures that live in our wonderful cold water coral beds, sponge meadows, canyons and sandbanks. Painters, Esther Tyson from Derbyshire, Kim Atkinson from North Wales and Antonia Phillips from Dorset dived off the Dorset coast. Another painter, Anna Kirk-Smith dived off the Yorkshire coast, while Harriet Mead, sculptor and President of the Society of Wildlife Artists, discovered the wonders of the Norfolk coast. The Underwater Art for Action Exhibition is open from Saturday 16 until Tuesday 26 March 10am to 4pm at the Fine Foundation Chesil Beach Centre, Portland Road, DT4 9XE. Free event, donations towards marine conservation. For more information, ring 01305 206191. To find out more about Marine Conservation Zones go to www.wildlifetrusts.org/haveyoursay
