During time in lockdown, it has become apparent how important travel and adventure are to us and we look to artists and creators to keep us inspired and remind us of the world outside of our immediate surroundings.
The Osborne Studio Gallery, on Motcomb Street, Belgravia, is holding a new online exhibition of the vibrant work of Sophie Walbeoffe. Gallery director Geoffrey Hughes says: ‘In this troubled and turbulent world, her work exemplifies the beauty of nature and its importance to our very lifeblood and civilisation. Her beloved Kenya, its birds, elephants and enormous variety of wildlife are at the core of her work.’
This is a much anticipated exhibition of recent works by Sophie, illustrating paintings from her travels in Amboseli over the last three years, specifically the work she has done with Cynthia Moss. You can also view the ebook ‘Impressions of Amboseli’, in partnership with Cynthia Moss who is the founder of the Amboseli Trust for Elephants, which is complete with artworks and diary extracts.
To get a glimpse into Sophie’s inspiration behind her artwork, see the exhibition film here. The exhibition is open online until 6 June and the gallery is open by appointment, to find out more visit the website here.
The Osborne Studio Gallery specialises in sporting paintings and bronzes by leading contemporary artists, with an emphasis on horse racing, and has additionally branched out over the years to handle the works of many respected landscape and figurative painters.
