Bronze, Black & White Exhibition
Two Wildlife Artists - One Unique Show
On a bitingly cold November night, a good crowd of patrons and friends made their way to the Royal Opera Arcade Gallery to the Private Preview of the Bronze, Black & White Exhibition featuring bronze sculptures by acclaimed wildlife sculptor Rosamond Lloyd together with black and white photographs of African wildlife by David Lloyd.
Delicious African-based canapés and cocktails contributed to an excellent evening which gave the artists a wonderful opportunity to showcase their work and provided Tusk with a great chance to publicise its work in Africa.
The highlight of the evening was the unveiling of the stunning new sculpture, ‘Mother and Baby White Rhino Study’, by Charlie Mayhew, CEO of Tusk, and Reggie Heyworth, Managing Director of the Cotswold Wildlife Park. Commissioned to celebrate the birth of Cotswold Wildlife Park’s first baby white rhino in the park’s forty-three year history, this sculpture will take up permanent residence in Park. Thanks to the superb generosity of the sculptor, Rosamond Lloyd, a significant percentage of the sale price of the limited edition (20%) will be donated to Tusk.
Rosamond Lloyd stated: “I share a passion for wildlife and conservation. The creation of a bronze rhino sculpture commemorates the special birth of the first white rhino at the Cotswold Wildlife Park and also supports the incredible work of Tusk, ensuring that species such as the beautiful white rhino continue to flourish for generations to come.”
