Saturday day 3rd June and Sunday 4th June at Morpeth Gallery 10am – 5pm for the World Environment Day Wildlife Art Exhibition, 5 Green Street, Morpeth NSW: admission free.
For four days Morpeth Gallery will come alive for the World Environment Day Art Exhibition with some of Australia’s best, award winning and internationally acclaimed wildlife artists.
Come in and see the work of internationally acclaimed wildlife artists like Stephen Jesic, the 2017 Grand Prize Winner of the International Art Award. Out of 26,000 entries it was Stephen’s stunning painting of Red-tailed Black Cockatoos ‘Cockatoo Canapes’, that took out the top prize from 17,000 artists representing 93 countries.
It’s not the first time Stephen has been recognised for his exceptional work, taking out the top prize in 2014 with a painting of a baby koala ‘Tender Tips’ and was runner-up in 2015, this time with a painting of a Military Macaw.
Last year in USA, Stephen took out the Art Renewal Centre’s Annual International Salon Competition where he was the First Place Winner in the Animal Category for his painting of a Scarlett Macaw in ‘Jewel of the Amazon’. This competition is restricted to only the best 1000 artists in the world.
These wins give him cash prizes, but more importantly wide coverage across America and internationally in feature articles written in their national art magazines, including the American Art Collector, which is considered to be the “bible” for art collectors in USA.
Stephen’s paintings continue to sell faster than he can paint them and regardless of size the fine detail has to be seen to be believed. From the intricate details of a feather to the fur on a tiger, Stephens’ paintings look as though they have been meticulously woven into the image like an intricate piece of finely woven silk.
You can meet five internationally acclaimed wildlife artists Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th June including the world’s best wildlife artist Stephen Jesic at Morpeth Gallery for the World Environment Day Art Exhibition.
