BIRDSCAPES Arkadia Fine Art

New work from Gallery Artists Mary Sumner / Angela Harding / Stuart Low and a selection of new Decoy Birds by Derek Richards

With the resurgence of interest in nature writing and the increasing number of artists and makers who are inspired by the natural world Arkadia Fine Art opened its doors in late 2010. Gallery owners Fabienne Fossez & Elizabeth Jackson have a passionate interest in and concern for the natural world. They wanted to share this enthusiasm with others and the gallery is a showcase for a unique blend of talents - from artists and printmakers to potters, wood carvers and sculptors. The gallery derives its name from the Greek spelling of 'arcadia', which in poetic fantasy represents a pastoral paradise. The use of the 'k' also makes reference to the 'Ark' and the plight of our wildlife.
The setting of the gallery is important: Arkadia Fine Art is located in a double-fronted Georgian house on historic West Street in Dunster - one of the best preserved medieval villages in England. A mile from the sea, and situated at the foot of Dunster Castle (NT) grounds and the gateway to Exmoor National Park.

Spring in Wing

Just to much of a cliche I know but just too adorable - new lambs spotted this morning while out cycling, also a beautiful patch of spring violet and an old nest from last year .
