Wildlife art continues to be an important part of Slimbridge Wetland Centre, building on the artistic legacy of Sir Peter Scott.
In 2000, the Cheng - Kim Loke Gallery was opened with a retrospective of his work and has since housed exhibitions by many local and internationally recognised artists, displaying a wide variety of media.
The art gallery plays host to six exhibitions of wildlife art each year. All mediums are shown from water colours to 3D works. It's a wonderful place to find one-off pieces at extremely affordable prices, and a percentage of all sales goes to the conservation work of the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust.

Alison Ingram and Chris Hindley Exhibition
Alison is known for her unique interpretation of wildlife. It is highly distinctive for it’s exploration into the world of colour, light, form and design. Her abstract wildlife paintings use harmonious colour and design to unite the painting and are instantly recognisable and unforgettable.
Most of Alison's paintings are of British Wildlife, exploring our relationship with our native birds and mammals. They are represented in their natural habitat interacting within their social group and the environment in which they live.
A folk artist from Cheshire, England, Chris draws his influence from both his own observations of birds and the early decoys of North America. A strong belief in the simplicity of line, form and colour direct the final and original designs for which he is known both at home and abroad.
