Artists' take on a mystical wild beast
HARES are one of nature's most painted creatures and to celebrate this, Nature in Art is running an exhibition devoted to them.
Hare Raising! features the long-eared beastie in a variety of genres, including watercolour, print and sculpture.
Hares have appeared in art, myths, legends and folk tales all around the world for thousands of years and are one of the most evocative and symbolic sights of the British countryside.
This is a themed exhibition that brings together a diverse range of responses to this inspiring creature.

It includes work especially created or borrowed for the show in the company of selected works already held in the Twigworth gallery's collection.
Though the majority of exhibits are by living artists, there are some from earlier times such as Hare's Nightmare by early 20th century artist J C Harrison and Dick Denchman's Feast by Frank Southgate, an artist who was killed in the First World War. Work by Charles Tunnicliffe, one of the twentieth century's most influential nature artists, will also be included.
As well as original prints like Peter Partington's etchings of two hares and paintings like Michael Dumas's Snow Shoe Hare, a number of sculptures, ceramic and other items are also included.
One piece is by Harriet Mead, currently president of the Society of Wildlife Artists. Made entirely of recycled metal objects, it eloquently captures the energy of a running hare.
Jan Sweeney, an artist who casts her work in bronze and is well known for her hare sculptures, will also have work on show.
Nature in Art is open from Tuesday to Sunday, 10am to 5pm. Entrance costs £5.25 for adults and £4.75 for children aged eight or over.
