Recycling artist's thought-provoking exhibition

Where: Museum in the Park, Stroud

When: Until Sunday, March 8

'Endangered and Extinct' is the title of an exhibition of work by creative recycling artist Val Hunt which has just opened at the Museum in the Park, Stroud.

With inspiration, ingenuity, humour and skill, Val has created a fascinating selection of large and small sculptural pieces which are both appealing and informative.

Animals, exotic birds, fish, dinosaurs and species of flora, all on the edge or now extinct, have been made from a selection of throwaway materials, especially Val's favourite medium - drinks can metal.

This colourful and thought-provoking exhibition presents a subtle message about recycling and preservation, raising awareness of why the creatures on show are endangered or extinct and why species are disappearing from our planet at such an alarming rate.

Admission is free and many works available to purchase.

The exhibition is accompanied by half-term holiday workshops and children's trails.
