In September 2006 Simon Trapnell, the director of the Nature in Art Museum at Wallsworth Hall, Twigworth, Gloucestershire contacted Tina Oloyede to discuss a proposal to stage a fractal art exhibition for the spring of 2007. At a meeting a couple of months later, the format and logistics of setting up the exhibition were finalised. Janet Parke was invited to join Tina as a key exhibitor and to begin the selection process for the remaining exhibition pieces. Invitations were sent out to members of the international fractal art community to submit twelve images each to be considered for inclusion.

The response was fantastic - twenty seven artists submitted over two hundred and fifty images, which were eventually whittled down to just thirty four exhibits - nine each of Tina and Janet's pieces and sixteen from other artists. In addition to the framed prints on display were a few pieces already owned by the museum:
The key feature of the exhibition was to tie in fractal art to the various fractal forms that so often occur in nature itself. In addition to the art exhibition, which ran from March 20th to April 15th 2007, a well attended evening event was organised at which Tina Oloyede gave a lecture introducing the concept of fractals in nature and fractal art, which went down well with the guests who attended.

The Ugly Duckling by Tina Oloyede

The artists other than Janet Parke and Tina Oloyede aartika-fractal-art , whose art was displayed were Elizabeth Thallauer, Etienne Saint-Amant, Samuel Monnier, Kerry Mitchell, Linda McCarthy, Heather Lamb, Damien Jones, Linda Hill, Lenora Clark, Katherine Bendtsen and Ronald Barnett.

All in all the exhibition was very exciting to be part of and was well received and well attended!
