Two regular contributors to Exmoor Magazine have a new exhibition that opens tomorrow.
Friends and colleagues Trevor Beer, artist, and Endymion Beer, illustrator, are collaborating once again with an art exhibition of natural history studies. Trevor focuses on native wildlife surrounded by its appropriate natural habitat. His works are mainly in pen and ink, with also a splash of watercolour and the occasional use of mixed media. He has a keen eye for detail and a passionate love of nature that is clearly depicted in his work. He has written regularly on wildlife for the Western Morning News for more than 21 years, and was awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list in 2002, for his work for the environment and journalism.
Endymion calls herself an illustrator rather than an artist. She is used to illustrating as part of her small business Naturama, but also voluntarily, for natural history educational projects as part of her work, as Hon National Youth Officer for the British Naturalists Association. She focusses on ‘portraits’ of her subject matter and ardently enjoys illustrating and nature. She is the first recipient of the Richard Fitter Memorial Medal.
Both artists have an eye for detail with a slight touch of humour at times. They write separate columns regularly for Exmoor Magazine and have also collaborated on several nature books together – mainly published by Halsgrove Publishers, based in Wellington in Somerset. For this exhibition they have joined forces to celebrate Exmoor Wildlife, and their joint love of nature.
Endymion says, “We hope that people will come to see our work at the exhibition. We will not be there all of the time, but photo calls and interviews can be arranged with a little notice.”
The exhibition with be held at Dulverton Guildhall Arts & Heritage Centre Gallery from 16-29 August.
