The art of Joy Adamson


October 28th - November 1st 2011


An exclusive exhibition of Joy Adamson’s botanical paintings will open for public viewing at the Ellensborough Park Hotel in Cheltenham from October 28th to
November 1st 2011, 10am - 6pm daily.


The story of the raising of an orphan lion cub by Joy and George Adamson in the 1950s and her subsequent release into the African bush is one of the great conservation stories of all time and was vividly portrayed in the film ‘Born Free’.
Joy was also a talented artist and Ellenborough Park is delighted to be able to display an exclusive selection of her original botanical illustrations.
Today the Elsa Conservation Trust, based in Cheltenham, continues Joy’s lifelong commitment to wildlife conservation operating a wildlife retreat and an education centre at the Adamson’s former home in Elsamere on the shores of Lake Naivasha in Kenya’s Rift Valley. All proceeds will be used to support the Trust’s educational programme in Kenya.
A selection of high quality prints, photos and cards along with the 50th Anniversary Edition of the book ‘Born Free’ will be available for purchase.


Admission by donation (minimum £3) to the Elsa Trust.
