great response from artists

There has been a great response from local artists wanting to get involved with this exhibition. Any artwork sold will carry a 40% donation to the Trust, so it is an excellent way of raising much needed funds. The artwork will be replaced once sold so the exhibition will evolve as it tours, making it different and fresh at each venue.

"One of the intentions of this touring exhibition is to take the artwork as far and wide in Cornwall as we can. The art displayed shares the aims and concerns of the Trust and evokes a diverse experience or understanding of Cornwall's wildlife," says Serena Pettigrew-Collins, Marketing and Fundraising Co-ordinator at Cornwall Wildlife Trust. "We are very lucky to have the support of a range of Cornish venues where the public can experience the exhibition."

'Inspired and Wild' aims to enrich the experience of art and wildlife in Cornwall, and hopes to engages the public further by holding associated wildlife and art activities throughout the tour. The exhibition will be opened at an evening launch event at Cornwall Wildlife Trust's Head Office at Five Acres in Allet on 1st October. Then on Saturday 3rd October Fox Club, the Trust's junior membership club, will be running a range of activities to inspire children about wildlife and art. The exhibition will then move onto The Cornish Studies Library in Redruth on 19th October, and where there will be wildlife storytelling for children.

From 30th October the exhibition will be at Lobbs Farm Shop in Heligan, and will host various wildlife and art activities for all ages in the Lost Gardens of Heligan on Saturday 31st October and Sunday 1st November, including Fox Club's ARTrageous event, a Trust Bat expert to answer all your questions, a talk on winter birds in the Hide, and a Wildlife Photography walk lead by David Chapman. The tour will end at Geevor Tin Mine in Pendeen, exhibiting from 20th November until the end of January, and will tie-in with a show of their Wildlife Photography Competition winners named 'Wildlife on the Edge'.

Serena says, "We really look forward to displaying a diverse selection of work from the wealth of artistic talent in Cornwall. With so much beautiful wildlife and stunning scenery we believe this will be an outstanding exhibition of artwork inspired by wild Cornwall. It is also a vital way for us to raise important funds to enable us to continue our work."
