      'Waterways' Exhibition @ WWT London Wetland Centre

      Independent online art retailer BobCat Gallery will be hosting a group exhibition in the gallery space at the WWT London Wetland Centre, Barnes, from 2nd December 2021 - 28th February 2022.

      Waterways’ will celebrate the diversity of wetland habitats and wildlife through contemporary art, and includes the work of 11 artists who have been inspired by wetlands near and far.

      Celebrating it’s 75th Anniversary this year, the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust (WWT) save critically endangered species from extinction, work with communities around the world who depend on wetlands, and inspire people to take care of nature. Opened in May 2000, the 105 acre London Wetland Centre was created from four disused Thames Water reservoirs, and is now an urban oasis for both wildlife and people within the bustle of the city.

      Curator and BobCat Gallery Founder, Catherine Sweet, says: “I am absolutely delighted to work with both the London Wetland Centre and this amazing group of artists to create such a vibrant exhibition celebrating wetlands and the wildlife they support around the globe.

      BobCat Gallery specialises in original, affordable artwork, and as such we’re presenting a tightly curated collection of paintings, drawings, linocuts and mixed media work, plus limited edition photography.”

      All artwork in the exhibition will be for sale, with 35% from each sale supporting WWT conservation work worldwide. Throughout the exhibition there will also be several special events held in the gallery, including craft workshops for young people, artist talks and curator tours.

      The exhibition Private View will take place on Tuesday 7th December from 4pm - 7pm. To register for your free ticket, head to Eventbrite at 

      Entrance to the gallery free with admission to the Centre, or email to book a free appointment to visit the gallery space. The Centre is open daily (except for Christmas Day) from 9.30am - 4.30pm.
