Exciting new exhibition to be held at RSPB Geltsdale

Tuesday 29 November 2016

Helen Walsh is the latest artist and creative practitioner to exhibit at RSPB Geltsdale and visitors are invited to view her work in the gallery space at the Hallbankgate nature reserve.

Living and working in Cumbria, Helen specialises in drawing and textiles, in particular delicate stitch work.

Helen Walsh said "Birds, especially the crow family, and feathers have become an important element in my work, influencing my latest exhibition entitled 'As the Crow Flies'. I have always loved birds; the way they move, their plumage, their otherness. They are unlike ourselves and other animals, seeming to me to be freer. I am therefore delighted to have the opportunity to exhibit at RSPB Geltsdale nature reserve, home to a great variety of different wildlife."

'As the Crow Flies' will be on show in the gallery space at Stagsike Cottages - the information point at RSPB Geltsdale, everyday from Saturday 3 December to Saturday 25 February, 9 am-5 pm and admission is free of charge.

Ian Ryding, Farmland Warden at Geltsdale said "We are really pleased to be welcoming Helen Walsh for this special exhibition. Set among the stunning scenery of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Geltsdale is an incredible place for a rich diversity of birds and other wildlife. It is therefore a fitting location for an exhibition inspired by birds, and we hope those who visit will take the opportunity to explore both the reserve and the artwork."
