Joanne Goodwin

The glorious gardens of Tatton Park become an art gallery this autumn when acclaimed Cheshire artist Nicky Thompson displays his new collection of 12 wildlife works, commissioned by the Mid Cheshire Railway Line.

The dozen images in the poster campaign, called Travel the Mid Cheshire Rail Line and Discover Cheshire’s Wonderful Wildlife, are inspired by 1930s art and combine Nicky’s striking use of vibrant colour and bold period typography.

They are on show in the grounds of the park from October 3 to November 15.

The collection comprises works entitled Barn Owl, Badger, Fox, Great Crested Grebe, Red Deer (at Tatton Park), Grey Heron (on the River Dee), Brown Hares, Otter, Mute Swan, Buzzard, Kingfisher and Great Crested Newt, and follows other collaborations between Chester-based Nicky and the Mid Cheshire Line, which connects Chester with Manchester via Northwich, Knutsford and Altrincham. The artist’s Marvellous Days Out Railway posters attracted widespread acclaim in 2017.
