Last week James and I went along to the new exhibition at The Wilson Gallery in Cheltenham; Wild Worlds. An exhibition for young and old, or the likes of James and I that are somewhere in between.
The exhibition is spread across multiple floors, starting at the bottom where children can let their creative juices flow and use all sorts of material to create pieces relating to the theme ‘Wild Worlds’.
Continuing up the stairs you’ll find a room filled with wonderful ceramic animals, which explores how animals have inspired pottery forms and design during the 20th and 21st centuries.
There are many stories and tales that can be taken away from the objects, especially those that have appeared in children’s nursery rhymes.
Up on the third floor was probably my favourite part of the exhibition; an immersive space created by the artist Sarah Butterworth with giant flapping birds, kaleidoscope butterflies and a large goose that is also a snug area for reading.
Beautifully visual and interactive art that has you quite mesmerised and feeling like you’re a child once again.
Wild Worlds exhibition is running until the 4th September with plenty of art and crafts activities going on in between. You can purchase your tickets here.
