Sir Peter Blake together with the Drang Gallery are proud to have launched an exclusive silkscreen, lithograph, etching and found art inkjet print in support of the National Lobster Hatchery charity based in Padstow. This beautiful collection of Lobsters are available exclusively through the Drang Galleries, of which a proportion of the profits will go to support the National Lobster Hatchery in conserving native lobster populations along the Cornish coastline.
As part of the exhibition, on 14th and 15th May only, the CCA Art Bus will be making a trip to Padstow’s Harbour front, a double-decker bus designed by Peter Blake himself. Acting as a travelling art gallery this London bus will bring with it some fantastic new releases by Sir Peter Blake, including glitter and diamond dusted Union Jack Flags and Limited edition I Love You silkscreens. These will be on gallery display for the first time since their very recent release.
The Drang Gallery is proud to support The National Lobster Hatchery : a pioneering marine conservation, research and education charity that helps conserve native lobster populations, by raising lobster larvae at the hatchery until they reach a life stage at which they are better able to survive in the wild. They are then released back into our coastal waters with the help of local fishermen and dive schools, helping to replenish natural stocks. The charity’s innovative hatchery techniques help improve juvenile lobster survival rate by around 1,000 fold, compared to those born naturally in the wild.
“More than 75% of the world’s fish stocks are either fully exploited, over exploited, depleted or recovering and lobster stocks have already collapsed in Scandinavia. The world’s human population is due to reach 9 billion and there has never been as much pressure on the world’s fish stocks. If we continue to take from our oceans without effective control, there will be no fish left by the middle of the century. We urgently need new approaches to managing our living marine resources. The work of the National Lobster Hatchery represents exactly that.”
