Lion: Mark Adlington

6 - 28 May 2021

 

 

Lion is the result of a three year project by Mark Adlington to study lions in six different habitats across Eastern and Southern Africa. The result is a superb series of paintings, drawings and sketchbooks representing months of patient work and careful observation giving him a unique insight into the lives of this most beautiful of big cats. The exhibition coincides with the publication of a book of the work with written contributions from frontline conservationists whose help and support made the project possible.  Lion is being held in collaboration with Pride Lion Conservation Alliance and will benefit their important work in safeguarding the future of the species.

 

The exhibition will be held at John Martin Gallery from the 10th - 28th May 2021.

    Pride Lion Conservation Alliance

    Founded in 2015 by six leading field-based conservationists, the Pride Lion Conservation Alliance combines rigorous science with its community conservation efforts to address the biggest threats to lions and improve the lives of local people. The Pride Alliance’s founding members lead carnivore conservation projects in four key lion range countries, researching and protecting more than 20% of Africa’s existing wild lion population. Together, Pride’s founders are using their collective 100+ years of experience to share knowledge and replicate each other’s success across project sites to impact conservation on a meaningful scale and ensure a future for Africa’s wild lions.
