An Exhibition and Sale of Wildlife Art

Online auction of donated pieces to raise money for Wildlife through Explorers against Extinction.

The idea was for each artist or celebrity to spend 26 minutes creating a sketch or piece of art to be donated to the cause - 26 minutes being significant because that is how often an elephant is killed!

I chose to donate a watercolour painting of a Hawksbill Turtle, completed n about 45 minutes.

The Exhibition includes some amazing pieces and amusing celebrity efforts. Do check the dates and schedule of cities on the poster, including 2 venues in London and 2 in New York or go online to

www.explorersagainstextinction.co.uk

To bid on the pieces, starting as low as £50, visit the auction listings at

'THE VAMP' Collection with Activate Arts Chelmsford at Brentwood Art Trail

Members of Activate were invited to create a piece of art in based on a sketch by Steve Foster, which was the basis for his sculpture of the same title: The Vamp.  Our members were so taken with this suggestion that The Vamp now exists in many different styles and mediums.  We wanted to exhibit the pieces as a collection and that opportunity has arisen through Brentwood Art Trail, later this summer.

I'm exhibiting with the Chelmsford Art Society in the Museum at Oaklands Park in Chelmsford over the Christmas period.  It promises to be an interesting and varied selection and the standard of our members work is high.  The art is for sale.

I was thrilled that the Museum chose my dragonfly image called "Summer's Lease" to create the poster and invitations and also honoured to be asked to hang my large scale canvas painting "The School Run" in the front window.  You'll see this as you approach the Museum's front entrance.
