Safari - new paintings from the wild animal kingdom of Africa by Moish Sokal

Description

East Lambrook Manor Gardens is hosting Somerset watercolour artist and traveller Moish Sokal for his 26th annual Summer Exhibition in the Malthouse Gallery.

Sokal realised a lifelong dream of visiting Africa and found it as exciting as he had expected. His safari trips covered the Kruger National Park (South Africa), Victoria Falls, (Zimbabwe), and Chobe wildlife park (Botswana). Sokal’s vivid watercolours express these exciting land and river safaris: “I had most magical encounters with rhinos, sleeping lions, wrestling giraffes, sparring elephants and even a brief glimpse of an elusive cheetah stalking its prey.”
 
The exceptional array of birds along the riverbank – yellow weaver birds with their hanging nests, kingfishers, hornbills and a giant footed African jacana walking effortlessly on the waterlily leaves. However not all the wildlife was so pretty with his boat avoiding grumpy pods of hippos sparring, showing their huge teeth, and crocodiles basking in the sun on the bank where they blended so perfectly.
 
ENTRY TO THE EXHIBITION IS FREE and you can visit ‘Safari’ without booking and paying to see the garden, although you’d be missing a treat if you did so. To book to see the garden as well please use the link BOOK HERE. There is no need to book a ticket for the exhibition.
