Masters of Wildlife Art 2024, Debbie Morris Best in Show




Saturday, 1 June 2024

Congratulations to all of our amazing wildlife artists! This is our second Masters of Wildlife Art virtual exhibition. Accepted works range from hyper-realism to abstract and beyond.

Enjoy this group art exhibition that combines an invigorating range of art styles and mediums.

Sunset Dip, by Debbie K. Morris is Best in Show!

From the artist, "A stunning elephant enjoying a dip in the warm evening sunset. I was completely taken by the simmering reflections on his skin and I don't think I touched a grey pencil throughout the whole drawing. This piece took me over 10 months on/off with many moments of self doubt along the way but I am so pleased I managed to finish it."

This masterful work is featured on for the month of June 2024. We look forward to your virtual visit to this hyper-realistic pastel drawing up close. There are also almost 30 other works in this exhibition. Subject matter and style vary within the realm of wildlife art.

It is the goal of Wild Heart Gallery to support and promote animal and wildlife artwork in a wide range of genres and styles. Originality is one of our metrics for inclusion in our shows. So our exhibitions are not your standard wildlife art.
