ArtyFarty a group of local artists from Charnwood have launched an online art auction to help raise funds for the Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust Meadows Appeal.
The 'Art for Meadows Auction' is a selection of original and beautiful hand-crafted pieces of art all inspired by local meadows.
Kate Moore member of ArtyFarty and the LRWT Charnwood Local Group says;
"We are a group of friends in Charnwood with a passion for art. Our focus is on sharing ideas, interests, skills and enthusiasms. We take our art more seriously than ourselves – hence the name ArtyFarty. During the past 5 years, we have involved ourselves in a variety of projects.
A majority of us are members of the Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust. Each of us stimulated and motivated by its land, flora and fauna, and its environmental ethos. With this in mind, we have created artworks, including paintings, ceramics and glass, that are inspired by local meadows. These are being auctioned to support the Trust's appeal to raise money to purchase and protect a meadow within the Charnwood Forest."
