National Exhibition of Wildlife Art 2012



This summer the National Exhibition of Wildlife Art (NEWA) will be once again showcasing a few hundred paintings and sculptures of remarkable quality, in a great variety of styles.

Established in 1994 by a group of artists interested in promoting wildlife art and conservation, NEWA is a not-for-profit organisation which makes a donation each year to wildlife concerns such as those involved in ‘Wildlife Weekend’.

NEWA is a selected exhibition for professional and amateur artists and is Europe’s largest completely open wildlife art exhibition; showing works by unknown and established artists side by side.
Every work of art selected for the show will also be available to view and to buy online at

Each July, this delightful exhibition, now firmly established at the Gordale Garden Centre in Wirral, promises an experience the whole family can enjoy for free. Gordale provides a large, tranquil space where paintings are displayed in the natural light of the ephemeral NEWA gallery.

The first three days of the exhibition will be complemented by live demonstrations of art during the “Wildlife Weekend”.  Friday 13th to Sunday 15th July will feature at least 2 or 3 wildlife artists showing and sharing their skills each day.
