Inspired by the natural environment of the local area, Rachel Hudson’s exhibition From the Margins will transfer to Chawton House for the month of September.
From barn owls to brown hares, to harvest mice and hairstreak butterflies, this display takes you on a journey of discovery to meet iconic farmland species that live here in the South Downs. It is a collaboration between natural history illustrator, Rachel Hudson, and the Selborne Landscape Partnership in Hampshire.
Hudson’s artwork champions species we are in danger of losing and shows how restoration of field margins- from hedgerows to wildflower strips- is making a positive difference. It is also a call to action to support local farmers who are supporting wildlife, many of whom are members of the Selborne Landscape Partnership.
