A Walk On The Wild Side

by Jenny Elliott

A Walk On The Wild Side is a photographic record of some of the beautiful animals and scenery artist, Jenny Elliott, has been privileged to photograph whilst walking in the local countryside.

 "I began taking an interest in wildlife photography about 15 years ago. My husband decided it was about time I had a decent camera and bought me my first DSLR. It was a steep learning curve from there as before this I just used automatic settings on my camera.  Over time my technique improved and I was very fortunate to have a badger photograph published in the first British Wildlife Photography Awards book. I have since been shortlisted on a couple of occasions for those awards.  I have also had various photos and articles published in Dorset Life magazine and other countryside magazines.”

by local artists

Towards the Mountains Skye in Acrylic  by Jill Preston

The Yeovil Art Group was founded in 1947 when like-minded people who loved art were invited to form a group. Now more than seventy years later the Yeovil Art Group is still going strong, with over eighty members and counting.

The Group meets on Monday afternoons at Birchfield Community Hall in Yeovil for informal painting sessions and members attend frequent tutored workshops in many fields of art.  In addition, group members can exhibit and sell their artworks through regular local exhibitions.

Don’t miss this unique chance to see what local artists can do!
