Art to help plight of the elephants
AN artist who grew up and studied in the region will exhibit a series of paintings.
John Gledhill has created a series of extinction-themed paintings in partnership with the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.
A lino print of The Last Elephant is being exhibited at the Zillah Bell Gallery in Thirsk, with 50 per cent of the sale of his artworks being donated to the trust.
The charity looks after the most successful orphan elephant rescue and rehabilitation programme in the world, for East Africa.
