A Day at the Zoo

04 Jul 2009 - 05 Sep 2009

This exhibition will feature wonderful images of animals from Newquay Zoo. Painting, sculpture, photography, automata and film make this a show for all the family.

John Dyer (Darwin 200 painter in residence) will exhibit some of his colourful, popular paintings. John is well known for his work at Eden and Banrock, Australia. There will be a lively programme of workshops and a creepy crawly day with live specimens to revolt the squeamish that will be held by Mark Norris.
