“African Conservation through the Eyes of an Artist”
My good friend, Alison Nicholls, will be speaking on a topic that is near and dear to her heart (and mine) – African Wildlife Conservation. Alison creates incredibly beautiful sketches and watercolors based on her experiences in the African bush and her affiliations with two conservation groups, the African People & Wildlife Fund run by Dr. Laly Lichtenfeld in Tanzania and Painted Dog Conservation in Zimbabwe. Based on her first-hand experiences at these conservation sites, Alison returns to her studio and creates richly colorful renderings.
Alison’s love for all things Africa and all things wild comes alive in her art. She is an incredible spokesperson for wildlife conservation in Africa because she sees not only the reality of the situation but also the possibility, and through her art and her way of being, inspires others to join her in making a difference.
I am already registered to attend – it is Monday, September 29th in NYC at The Explorers Club. The reception begins at 6pm and her lecture at 7pm. Please see the attached link for details:
