An art exhibition highlighting 22 of the world’s most endangered animals has opened at a Suffolk art gallery.
Ipswich-born artist Kieran Page’s portraits of 22 near-threatened to critically endangered speices will be on display every weekend at the Mill Tye Gallery in Great Cornard.
Among the animals he has painted include the Asian Elephant and the Ethiopian Wolf.
Mr Page said 10% of sales for each print will go to the World Wide Fund for Nature(WWF).
He added: “As the Mill Tye Gallery has been really supportive of my work, I’ve made this series exclusive to them. They are displaying the original artwork, 10 portraits in A6 and 12 in A5 which are for sale.
