Pollinator-themed art exhibition flys high

Local artist Bridget Spinney has curated a pollinator-themed art exhibition in conjunction with the Pollinator Project.

Thirty local artists have contributed a piece of pollinator-inspired art to raise awareness of the role bees, butterflies, hoverflies, wasps and moths have in our food and in nature, and to inspire more people to act to protect them.

Mrs Spinney has contributed to the collection.

Her work is a large collection of organic prints in the shape of a butterfly.

The theme of her work is a celebration of the organic world. She uses leaves, flowers, plantains and more to create the impression of a beautiful pollinator.

‘My work is printed in pollinator plants, and I hope it makes people realise that even here in Guernsey, our insects are in crisis. I hope it makes people think about keeping the habitat safe for these important insects,’ she said.

The 30 pieces of art feature a wide variety of media and were created to form a wide range of commentary about environmentalism, pollinators and climate change.

Celebrating our Pollinators

On 26 November 2021, the Pollinator Project hosted the 30/30 Art Auction at St James to celebrating our Pollinators and raised £22000 in the process.

30 nationally acclaimed artists who have a connection to Guernsey created artworks to be auctioned. These all celebrated or highlighted the decline of our much-needed pollinators.

The proceeds of the auction have been split between the Pollinator Project, Les Bourgs Hospice and the artists.

These beautiful and exciting paintings and photographs were all snapped up on the night to a range of buyers and we thank our supporters RAW Capital PartnersMartel Maides and St James.
