Meles Meles exhibition

Walking through the door it is hard to know where to look first. In fact even before you walk in the door you are greeted with a couple of beautiful badger statues in the window.

If you have an interest in badgers, then this is the place to visit.

Meles Meles – Exhibition 8th -27th July 2019
Location : A2 Gallery – 80 High Street, Wells BA5 2AJ

From stunning photographs by Richard Bowler and Andrew Parkinson, to gorgeous paintings by Kaye Parmenter, Anna Fitzgerald and John Davis.

Plenty of badgers in various poses made from a variety of materials, which through social media platforms you can watch the making of some of them.

It was great to see one of my favourite artists here, Sam Cannon and I was really taken with the badgers painted on wood.

I loved all the tiny details on the felt badgers from the one holding a toadstool to the badger reading ‘Much ado about nothing’.

I could go in to detail about each artist but I don’t want to spoil your own visit.

By far my overall favourite was the metal badger by Barbara Franc. The more you looked at it, the more quirky little details such as the cows intertwined in the body of the badger became apparent.
