“Thelwell” is a name that many people who love horses know well- think cute, chubby, witty and sometimes bratty pony cartoon drawings and you are almost there! Mix that together with the talented drawing skills, humor, captivation of the horse world and you have the Thelwell ponies – a seemly endless supply of drawings and paintings of ponies doing pony things with their pony club girls, created by the master of horse cartoons and humor, Norman Thelwell. Read on to discover a new exhibit of his art work in Gloucester, England.
Announced just yesterday on Norman Thelwell’s Offical Facebook Page, the exhibition will take place at the esteemed Nature In Art Gallery & Museum, from the 30th Of July to the 1st Of September, 2019. The Nature In Art Gallery & Museum has been twice specially commended in the National Heritage Museum of the Year Awards.
“Our collection embraces two and three-dimensional work in all media and styles ranging from Pablo Picasso to David Shepherd. Spanning 1500 years, it includes work by 600 artists from over 50 countries. So whether you prefer exotic oriental treasures or watercolour landscapes, the Flemish masters or contemporary glass, modern abstract interpretations or bronze sculpture, textiles or ethnic art there will be something here for you and you are likely to make some new discoveries too!”

With a light, whimsical drawing style, Norman was able to convey the thoughts and feelings of both his human and equine subjects, often young pony club girls and their rolly polly ponies.
