New wildlife exhibition on Worthing Beach
Stroll along Worthing’s historic promenade at any time, day or night, and you will encounter a new exhibition at the West Buildings Shelter entitled ‘All Around’. It depicts bright and engaging images by wildlife artist Diane Bailey.
Diane has travelled extensively, seeking out the exotic, and is a seasoned experienced scuba diver.
‘I once took a whole year out to dive around the world’ she says. ‘I investigated many famous dive sites but also discovered new remote ones. I love the excitement of ancient wrecks, underwater caverns, cliffs and reefs, and seeing the amazing life they contain’.
She has certainly had close encounters with many exotic animals, and often paints them. But now, in this exhibition, against the backdrop of Worthing’s beautiful shore and sea, she chooses to focus on the creatures that live amongst us. She celebrates their diversity and individuality in her inimitable style.
She has taken numerous commissions from people seeking gifts for family members to commemorate loved pets, but also those wanting something remarkable and out of the ordinary.
Positive and uplifting, this exhibition will be on show until 2nd August.
