‘Artists for Albatrosses’ – an expedition to South Georgia

Don’t miss a unique opportunity to catch this illustrated talk given by renowned Wildlife Artist Chris Rose.

Friday November 8th, Combe St Nicholas Village Hall (South Somerset, near Chard), 7.30pm.

In early 2010 Chris spent 5 ½ weeks on board a 20m yacht, sailing a total of over 4,000km (in some of the roughest seas on the planet!) to draw and paint the wildlife and landscapes of the Antarctic archipelago of South Georgia. The resulting work formed an exhibition in London with the aims of raising funds for the Royal Society for the Protection of Bird’s (RSPB) Save the Albatross campaign and of raising awareness of the plight of albatrosses and other seabirds in the Southern Ocean.

This illustrated talk is an account of the expedition and will feature photographs (and a few videos) of this remarkable place and its wildlife, plus some of the artwork.
