Celebrating Cornwall's Art and Wildlife

Cornwall Wildlife Trust's art exhibition fundraiser has launched at their Head Office in Allet, Truro. Aiming to raise vital funds for the Trust, this stunning collection of artwork also showcases the wealth of artistic talent from around the county.

'Inspired and Wild: Celebrating Cornwall's Art and Wildlife', will tour the county from 1st October until the end of January, and promises to be a fantastic way to raise awareness of the Trust's work, as well displaying different interpretations of the wildlife and habitats it protects and conserves in Cornwall.

'Inspired and Wild' is a diverse collection of paintings, photography and mixed media, as well as cards and prints. Any artwork sold will carry a 40% donation to the Trust, helping to raise money to enable the charity to continue their important conservation work. The artwork will be replaced once sold so the exhibition will evolve as it tours, making it different and fresh at each venue. With a selection of art that includes pieces from David Chapman, Suzy Sharpe, Michael Atkinson and Ian Griffiths; 'Inspired and Wild' promises to both engage and inspire its visitors.

Serena Pettigrew-Jolly, Marketing and Fundraising Co-ordinator at Cornwall Wildlife Trust says, "We believe this is an outstanding exhibition of artwork inspired by the beautiful flora, fauna and scenery of wild Cornwall, so come along an enjoy it at one of the wonderful venues it will be displayed in around the county".

'Inspired and Wild' hopes to engage the public further by featuring art and wildlife activities throughout the tour. The exhibition is now on at Cornwall Wildlife Trust's Head Office at their nature reserve Five Acres, so come along and experience the artwork then go for an explore around the reserve. The exhibition will move onto The Cornish Studies Library in Redruth from 19th October, where there will be art activities and wildlife storytelling for children.

From 30th October the 'Inspired and Wild' will be at Lobbs Farm Shop in Heligan, where the Lost Gardens of Heligan will host various wildlife and art activities for all ages in on Saturday 31st October and Sunday 1st November, including Fox Club's ARTrageous event, a Trust Bat expert to answer all your questions, a winter bird watch in the Hide and a Wildlife Photography walk lead by David Chapman. The tour will end at Geevor Tin Mine in Pendeen, exhibiting from 22nd November until the end of January, and will tie-in with a show of Geevor's Wildlife Photography Competition winners named 'Wildlife on the Edge'.
