Visitors will have the opportunity to watch John Dyer at work during his four day residency at Newquay Zoo from the 23rd to the 26th July (weather permitting).

Head of Education Mark Norris said “We are so excited! This is a fantastic opportunity for people to chat to John and see him at work. John was last here during the winter when he painted the ‘Purple Penguin Party’. This is part of the Darwin 200 exhibitions sponsored by the Heritage Lottery Fund currently at Falmouth Art Gallery”


“John grew up near Newquay and has spent time overseas painting plants and animals in many places linked to the zoo's overseas projects including the Philippines, a new exhibit which has been opened at the zoo this summer.”

"I am very pleased and inspired to be working with animals and birds in my paintings again," says John Dyer.

John is of many Cornish painters, photographers, cartoonists and printmakers inspired by the zoo and working alongside keepers to build up a bank of contemporary new works for the award winning "fabulous, family friendly and free" Falmouth Art Gallery collection and its Darwin 200 exhibitions. Currently showing ‘A Day At The Zoo’ exhibition which is on display until the 13th  September”
