Pollyanna Wins Gold Medal
Wildlife Artist Pollyanna Pickering has been honoured with a National award for her artwork. Her painting ‘Study of a Jacob’s Ram’ has won the Gold Medal for the Best Painting in Show at the Association of Animal Artists Annual Exhibition which is currently running in Cheshire.

The painting was selected from over two hundred works on exhibition at the Castle Park Arts Centre in Frodsham, submitted by artists from throughout the UK and around the world. The event was selected by Artists and Illustrators magazine as one of the 12 most inspiring art exhibitions in the UK.

“It was a huge surprise” Pollyanna commented after collecting her award at the Preview evening “It is quite a subtle picture, and I thought it could easily be overlooked, so I am absolutely delighted that it was the painting which caught the judge’s eye!”
However Pollyanna is currently working on a collection of paintings inspired by wildlife from much further a field – her forthcoming Summer exhibition in her private gallery near Matlock will feature paintings of endangered species inspired by her expeditions to all seven continents.

Born Free – Pollyanna presents Virginia McKenna with £7500.00
A special event held in wildlife artist Pollyanna Pickering’s gallery has raised £7,500.00 for the Born Free Foundation.
On the 50th anniversary of the release of the iconic, award-winning motion picture Born Free, the Born Free Foundation have declared 2016 to be The Year of the Lion. This ongoing year of action and celebration will honour the 50th anniversary of the film Born Free, which tells the moving story of Elsa the lioness, and highlight the Foundation’s critical work to protect lions globally.
As a long standing patron of Born Free, Pollyanna was delighted to host very special guest Virginia McKenna OBE, at a one-day event to mark the Year of the Lion. Tickets for the event sold out completely, and Pollyanna and Virginia spent the whole day signing copies of a specially created limited edition calendar in Pollyanna's crowded gallery. They were pleased to chat to visitors who had travelled the length and breadth of the UK - from the south coast to Scotland - to have the opportunity to purchase a calendar and view a specially staged exhibition of Pollyanna's work.

The funds raised mean that the Pollyanna Pickering Foundation has been able to donate £12500.00 in 2016 – enough to fund the building of ten lion proof enclosures in Kenya. These are a simple, cost effective approach to protecting livestock from predation at night. When cattle and other livestock are protected from lions, the Masai do not need to kill the lions to protect their livelihood. Born Free manages a local team of technicians who are now expert at erecting bomas, - and Pollyanna has been invited to travel out to Kenya with Born Free President Will Travers to help build some of these vital structures!
