Exhibition: Common Lands, an illustrated exploration of the natural world and tensions between animal and human forces.

A new exhibition from illustrators Maggie Li and Frann Preston-Gannon opens on February 15.

The exhibition will explore themes of biodiversity, habitat, destruction and migration, drawing parallels between the struggles in nature and in human societies.

Over the week there will be workshops for families to attend where children have the opportunity to be creative and think about themes of nature.

Maggie li said: “Common Lands is an illustrated exploration of the natural world and the tensions between animal and human forces.

“It was conceived by a shared love of nature and the desire to communicate some of the problems we’re facing with habitat destruction and an ever-crowded planet shared by so many.

“Frann and I wanted to create a new body of work that highlighted some of the negative aspects we’re facing but it’s celebrated nature in a positive and beautiful way.

We’d love for the local community to engage with this project which is why we’ve organised a host of free children’s workshops over half-term.

“These will hopefully spark an interesting conversation among children and families about nature, animals and our planet as a whole.”
