The chosen artists will be awarded with an exhibition in London and will be featured in the high-quality exhibition book, distributed to international art professionals.

Association of Animal Artists

a bit more about our next AAA exhibition and what we are endeavoring to do up here in the North West!

AAA offers artists exhibition opportunities, field trips and workshops.  AAA is committed to offering exhibition opportunities for its artists throughout the year.  Details of all AAA exhibitions will appear on the AAA website calendar. Further information about our Spring Exhibition is attached.

There is still time for you to join AAA and enter our next exhibition!  The Galleries at Samlesbury Hall will now accept artwork delivered by courier and they will arrange to send your artwork back to you by courier (at the artists cost), at the end of the exhibition if unsold.  This arrangement is between the artist and The Galleries at Samlesbury Hall.

Publicity for the exhibition has been good and AAA have placed an advert, publicizing the exhibition in the April issue of Lancashire Life.  We hope to have someone of note to open the exhibition, details to be announced very, very soon!

Please ring me for an informal chat if you would like to know more or if you would like to come and join us.

  South Lakeland District Council (SLDC) Arts and Events Service would like to hear from all artists interested in working on arts projects within South Lakeland.

We are currently updating our database and all details will be held on an internal database within SLDC Arts and Events.

Please email or call Ro Thomas (Arts Development Officer) on 01539 717 385 with your contact details, art form and type of work, and specifying which age groups you have experience of and would like to work with.
