World famous wildlife artist, Pip McGarry, is returning to The Frame Gallery in Odiham, Hampshire, with a breath-taking exhibition of his paintings of Big Cats and African art.
‘The Great McGarry’ runs from 21st June until 14th July and will delight visitors to the gallery with a stunning display celebrating Africa’s most majestic creatures. The collection is mainly inspired by his experiences on the many safaris Pip has organised and led for fellow artists and photographers to the remote African game reserves of Tanzania, Botswana and Kenya.
Pip devised and featured in the highly successful seven part Meridian Television series ‘A Brush With The Wild’ in 2004, which was presented by Anneka Rice, in which he taught celebrities such as Linda Robson and Nerys Hughes how to paint wildlife in oil. Pip is also founder and Chairman of Marwell International Wildlife Art Society (MIWAS), the largest wildlife art society in Europe, which celebrates its fifteenth annual exhibition this August. He has been the ‘Artist in Residence’ at Marwell Wildlife Park in Hampshire for over ten years.
His work has sold for record prices, with his painting ‘Flight of the Zebras’ selling for £29,300.00 at Christies of London in May 2008. More recently one of his pictures called ‘White Tiger’ sold for £40,000.00 at his sellout solo exhibition in Torquay.
To meet the artist and hear more about his inspirational travels through Africa, The Frame is holding a Private View on 21st June 2013 at 5:30pm. Attendance at this one-off event is highly recommended; for tickets please contact the gallery on 01256 701082 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
