Hugh's Fish Fight raised the stakes to highlight the urgent need for Marine Conservation Zones – now a group of artists are staging a pop-up show beside a Dorset beach to do the same. All five artists who have benefited from winning The Wildlife Trusts' Underwater Art Award are staging a joint show for the first time after taking the plunge to show the magic of our seas. The extraordinary creations of the winners will be exhibited in Dorset for a fortnight to highlight the urgent need for Marine Conservation Zones. Painters, Esther Tyson from Derbyshire, Kim Atkinson from North Wales and Antonia Phillips from Dorset dived off the Dorset coast for inspiration. Another painter, Anna Kirk-Smith dived off the Yorkshire coast, while Harriet Mead, sculptor and President of the Society of Wildlife Artists, discovered the wonders of the Norfolk coast. Come to see their beautiful works!
