An Evening in the Echoes of Ennion

As part of the ‘Eric Ennion: Ripples from the House’ on the Shore exhibition at The Granary Gallery, Berwick Visual Arts hosts an illustrated presentation about the artist’s time and work on the Northumbrian Coast.

Ennion was an outstanding 20th century bird illustrator who spent the 1950s living and working on the Northumberland coast. His drawings and watercolours of native British birds appeared in print throughout his adult life but he is little known by the general public in the present day.

The presentation will be given by Keith Bowey has worked in nature conservation and the field of ecology for over 30 years.  Bowey is one of the region’s best known ornithologists, leads bird watching courses for the Natural History Society of Northumbria and was the lead author, and principal editor, of the authoritative The Birds of Durham, published in June 2012.

He also runs an ecological consultancy business (Glead Ecological & Environmental Services).  He is a member of the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management, a Fellow of the Royal Society for the Arts and a Millennium Fellow.  In 2010, he was awarded the title of regional Biodiversity Champion by the OPAL awards programme.

This event is FREE but please book in advance via The Maltings Box Office here.

This event is part of the University of Sunderland's WALK Research Group Project 'Ripples from the House on the Shore: Eric Ennion, Art & Illustration', which is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
