We’ve an exciting summer ahead with members of the sales team on the road at some great events the length and breadth of the country.  Please drop by our stand for a glass of fizz and a chat about all things African.  If you can’t get to any of these but would like to see us to talk about safari plans just get in touch and we’ll be happy to arrange a convenient time to meet.

Aardvark Safaris will be present at these events:

Julia Cassels Fine Art Exhibition – Chelsea, London, 7-18th November

We are delighted to sponsor wildlife artist Julia Cassels with her ‘Safari’ exhibition which runs at Cricket Fine Art from 7th to 18th November.

Having lived and worked in Africa for many years and with a true understanding of the bush, Julia’s paintings evoke a real sense of the rhythms, shapes and colours of Africa and its wildlife. Working from life and her own sketches, which, she says, are often a mass of energetic lines and vibrant shading, her subjects are portrayed as if ‘caught in a glance’, unaware that she is there. Watercolour is her favourite medium but she will often use charcoal, ink, mixed media or whatever is necessary to express the fluidity of movement. She has been short-listed for the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year for the last four years.

Now based in Hampshire, Julia’s paintings and sculptures are exhibited in the UK and abroad, with her work being found in private collections around the world. Following the publication of her book ‘How to capture movement in your paintings’ in 1996, she was invited to teach, initially on painting safaris to Zimbabwe, and now on holidays to Zambia, Spain and Greece. Julia also runs art courses and workshops from her studio at home.

Private view on 7th November 6 to 8 pm
