Terence Lambert’s career started in the early 1970s, with his first solo exhibition in 1972. Since then his works have found their way into the collections of the Sultan of Oman, Paul McCartney and the Astor Family. His work has been displayed at some of the world’s most prestigious wildlife exhibitions, including The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wisconsin, USA and the inaugural show of the Society of Wildlife Art for the Nation at the Guildhall in London. Dee Doody has gained a reputation for producing emotive, high quality nature films. In his production for the Vale of Rheidol, he hopes to showcase the wildlife of the Rheidol Valley, Red Kites and Pine Martens included. Vale of Rheidol spokesperson, Robert Gambrill said the exhibition “is a really exciting opportunity to do something a bit different, that’ll appeal to non-railway enthusiasts and will show off the amazing wildlife to be found in the Rheidol Valley.”
