A Week of Waggett

This week at Enter Gallery, we’re celebrating the artistic excellence of Elizabeth Waggett with a whole week of exclusive offers, rare artworks, and an exciting competition that will give you the chance to own three artworks by this prominent contemporary artist.

Elizabeth Waggett is an extraordinary talent, known for intricate hand-drawn portraits of animals, insects, skulls and personal trinkets. Her work contrasts monochrome with flashes of gold, emphasising the value of the creatures she depicts, and challenging the observer to consider the impact of human activity on these incredible species.

Win the Halo Series!

While the final piece in Waggett’s 2023 Halo Series, isn’t being released until later this year, during A Week of Waggett we’re giving visitors to the gallery an exclusive sneak peek. The new print will be on display, so pop in to see it in all its glory.

During this special week, we’re also offering the chance for one lucky person to win the entire Halo Series for their home! This beautiful series of three limited edition artworks depicts a bee, a butterfly, and Waggett’s third subject choice (top secret!), all encircled in gold.

The collection is a celebration of the circle of life, and is designed to highlight how important these creatures are to our existence. Speaking of the series, Waggett explains:


“The gold highlights how special these insects are, and puts them on the pedestal they deserve. We’re so terrible at looking after the planet’s wildlife – I added the halo to celebrate them, and as a circle of protection. It also represents the perfect cyclical nature of the environment, and how, no matter what humans do, nature always comes full circle.”

As well as being visually beautiful, each of the insects in the Halo Series has been selected by Waggett for the symbolism they possess. For example, around the world, Butterflies signify metamorphosis and positive change. Similarly, bees are said to symbolise focus, hard-work and generosity, but they also hold the most personal significance to Waggett, as she found herself drawn to depicting them while recovering from an accident that left her unable to walk. She reveals:


“The bee is the symbol of Manchester - the city that I grew up in, but energy and healing wise – bees just feel so good for me to draw over and over again. The more I learn about them, I think there’s something else that draws me back. They have been a kind of spirit animal over the course of my healing journey. They’re hard-working, determined, drawn to beauty – I’m happy to feel so much synergy with bees.”
