This year’s Tring Festival Art Exhibition at the Walter Rothschild Zoological Museum looks to be as diverse as ever. The annual exhibition is a much-anticipated highlight of the month-long Tring Arts Festival, inspiring work from many local artists and providing a fantastic chance for new talent to be displayed and collected. It has been running for more than 20 years and will again be hosted by the Walter Rothschild Zoological Museum, from Saturday 3 July for one week only.
This year’s exhibition features work by more than 50 amateur and professional artists from Tring and the surrounding area. More than 500 original paintings of landscapes, portraits, still life, natural history and local scenes will be displayed alongside more abstract works, all of which are for sale.
Tring Festival Art Exhibition raises money for the wider community, and a percentage of the revenue from artwork sales is given to Oxfam. The exhibition attracts hundreds of visitors and donates on average £1,500–£2,000 each year to the charity.
‘The Museum is proud to host this significant local art exhibition,’ said Teresa Wild, Director of the Walter Rothschild Zoological Museum. ‘It provides a chance for local artists and art lovers alike to view the vast range of styles and subjects on show and displays the talent of artists living and working in our area.’
