Following last year’s record-breaking exhibition in Odiham, world-famous wildlife artist, Pip McGarry, is back in Odiham again this year, and this time he’s painting exclusively for The Frame Gallery.
‘Stories of Big Cats & Other Animals’ runs from Saturday, May 11th 2019 – Sunday 26th May 2019. Pip will unveil a collection of paintings created for The Frame, each with an accompanying anecdote helping to bring the image to life – a new and prodigious angle for the artist.
Subjects will include incredible depictions of big cats: cheetah, leopard, lion, tiger, jaguar and snow leopard and other animals such as zebra, buffalo, ostrich and elephant. These exclusive new oil paintings, inspired by months spent in the African bush, and years of being around big cats at Hampshire’s Marwell Zoo where Pip is ‘Artist in Residence’, will capture extraordinary moments in Pip’s astonishing career.
“This year we are showcasing some unforgettable moments, captured in oil.” Pip states, “I’m thrilled to be painting exclusively for The Frame Gallery, and delighted that the exhibition guests will be able to experience these moments of my life.”
Jan Baker, owner of the award-winning gallery, is confident this year’s exhibition will be the ‘must go’ event in Odiham: “Having an artist of Pip’s magnitude at the gallery will always draw people from across the country and further afield – and this year we are excited to allow them to dip even further in to his remarkable career. We feel incredibly privileged Pip wants to paint just for us, and cannot wait to unveil this collection.”
Pip will be holding a VIP Private View on Friday 10th May 2019 from 5.30pm, where participants can meet Pip and view the paintings prior to the exhibition opening. This is invite only, so if you would like to register your interest in attending, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01256 701082.
