RYE, N.Y. -- Wildlife and conservation artist Alison Nicholls will be at the Rye Free Reading Room Thursday to discuss her work and travels.
Nicholls lived in South Africa and worked closely with African conservation projects. In 2011 and 2012 she visited the African People and Wildlife Fund in northern Tanzania, where she sketched the people, wildlife and landscapes. This work is currently on display at the Rye Free Reading Room.
Nicholls will be at the library Thursday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. She will be talking about her artwork and the African People and Wildlife Fund's work to reduce human-wildlife conflict. Her current exhibit, "Lions, Livestock and Living Walls: An Artistic Study of Community and Conservation in Tanzania" will be on display at the Rye Free Reading Room until Aug. 25.
