Dear All,

Redspot was founded in 2001 by a collective of some of the finest wildlife artist in the UK. Together they are widely regarded as one of the most innovative artistic groups in their field producing work of the very highest standard in a diverse range of media - delicate watercolours, bold oils, detailed scraperboard and beaten metal sculptures.

The eight artists are defined by their talent and passion for representing their vision of nature and wildlife through their art. They are all deeply knowledgeable about the rural environment and its wildlife and their commitment to conservation shines through everything they do. They have held numerous exhibitions throughout the UK over the past 20 years, their work is collected worldwide and has been reproduced in dozens of books and periodicals.

We are delighted to present Redspot's UNLOCKED exhibition, which marks our 20th anniversary, although it is so sad that circumstances mean that we are unable to celebrate with you at a proper Private View and this has to be a virtual show.

For the artists, life has not changed very much in the past year - we are used to leading a fairy solitary existence in our studios - and we are extremely lucky to have been able to carry on working throughout the Covid restrictions, but we will miss getting together as a group and seeing so many of the friends we have met at exhibitions over the years.

We are giving a percentage of all sales made during the exhibition to both the countryside Alliance and the Atlantic Salmon Trust - two organisations that rely so much on the fundraising events which have been almost impossible to arrange over the past year.


With best wishes,
