About

See astonishingly detailed drawings of Britain’s ancient oaks by Mark Frith, in this rare exhibition of his work.

Mark Frith is inspired by a childhood immersed in countryside and woodland. At the age of 60 he began an ambitious project to draw “the most important oak trees in Britain.” In this exhibition you will see 8 of his huge tree portraits, getting an up-close look at buds, bark and branches. The project took four years to complete and Frith travelled the length and breadth of Britain to capture the character of each tree.

The drawings in this exhibition are rarely exhibited and have been generously loaned by the Heart of England Forest Trust. Local visitors may recognise a depiction of The Major Oak, located in nearby Sherwood Forest.
