About

Wildlife Photographer of the Year

East Riding Museums and Galleries are delighted to announce that The 54th Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition; on loan from the Natural History Museum, will open at The Treasure House on Saturday 22 June 2019. The exhibition features 100 breathtaking images from fascinating animal behaviour to remarkable wild landscapes, and this is the third time that the Treasure House has had the honour of hosting this world famous exhibition.

Wildlife Photographer of the Year is the most prestigious photography event of its kind, providing a global platform that showcases the natural world's most astonishing and challenging sights for over 50 years.

After opening at the Natural History Museum on 20 October 2018, this year's 100 award-winning images will embark on an international tour that allows them to be seen by millions of people across six continents, with Beverley being one of the exclusive UK locations.

Sculpting British Wildlife

by Emma Stothard

Emma Stothard is an internationally acclaimed sculptor based in Yorkshire, renown for her wire and willow sculptures of wild and domestic animals and birds.

Especially for the Treasure House and Beverley Art Gallery, Emma created a collection of works celebrating the richness and beauty of British wildlife. Her sculptured animals take over the whole building, presiding in the corridors, hiding in the Library and playfully interacting with the Gallery's collection.
