The Kenya Society


30 November – 14 December 2019.

This year in conjunction with celebrating our 60th anniversary of the company, we are holding our AFRICA show in collaboration with the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation. The DSWF is an effective wildlife conservation charity funding key projects in Africa and Asia working to save endangered wildlife, they will be giving a talk at our AFRICA Preview to highlight their important work. A percentage of the sales from the show will be donated to support the ongoing work of the DSWF.

Highlights of the show include paintings by David Shepherd, Mandy Shepherd, Emily Lamb, Paul Augustinus, Keith Joubert, Wilhelm Kuhnert, Justin Prigmore and others, as well as sculptures by Pascal Chesneau, Camilla Le May and Dylan Lewis.

In order to show the larger works to full effect, we will be holding a 4 day preview of the show in a fabulous contemporary barn, at Parsonage Farm, Kirdford, a few miles from our Petworth Gallery – courtesy of the generous Thomas family. There will be a talk by the DSWF, a drinks reception and a chance to meet some of the artists involved. For further information please contact info@rountreetryon.com
