Nationa Trust Newark Park: ‘Roaring To Soaring’
An exhibition aimes at families and children during the summer of 2015, following hot on the heels of the new Jurassic World movie. The exhibition was curated by Steve Roberts and Aimee Hacker of the Jurassic Coast Visitor Centre in Charmouth, assisted by Zoe Jackson of the Gloucestershire Geology Trust.
The exhibition combined information on dinosaur and fossil discoveries in Gloucestershire with a look at the evolution of dinosaurs into birds and the developement of feathers for functions other than for flying. Steve and Aimee both produced several new artworks for the exhibition as well as drawing on archive material and artworks of contemporary birds.
The exhibition was a great success as the photographs below will testify.
