Finding inspiration in wildlife

London City Hall, 20 S. Walnut St., is hosting “The Art of Conservation,” an exhibit featuring the work of Columbus artist and author Juliet Mullett.

Mullett uses watercolor pencils on various types of paper to produce detailed images of Ohio’s wildlife. Her illustrations have appeared in several guidebooks, most recently “Gardening for Moths” (McCormac & Gottfried). Her children’s book, “Born on the Prairie,” is on the Storybook Trail at Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park. Her work also has appeared in exhibits at several Columbus art galleries

“I’ve always been interested in wildlife conservation and, after retiring from a career of teaching English and art, I began to fully devote myself to the cause. I believe that exposing people to the beauty of wildlife is the first step in conservation,” Mullett said.

“As a lifelong Ohioan, I focus on Ohio animals, with a few irresistible exceptions. I’m developing a special interest in the success stories of conservation and love to illustrate animals that have made a comeback due to human efforts.”

“The Art of Conservation” runs through October at London City Hall, then moves to the Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park Nature Center, 1415 Darby Creek Dr., Galloway, for November and December.

Mullett’s next show, “Plant and Animal Relationships,” is a dual show with Columbus Dispatch nature columnist, Jim McCormac, at the Grange Insurance Audubon Center, 505 W. Whittier St., Columbus, in November and December 2024.
