Two rural artists will bring a flavour of wildlife to the Ceredigion Art Trail when they welcome visitors to view their work as part of the Trail in August.

Sculptors Wendy Earle and Cassie Gray will be displaying a range of work at Wendy’s home and studio and in the natural surroundings of Blaen Cwm Cadifor near Llandysul from August 16.

“Since moving to Ceredigion 30 years ago I’ve become more and more involved in nature and conservation,” said Wendy. “We have planted over 10,000 trees on our thirty acres and created wetlands and meadows to encourage biodiversity. I want to widen the scope for wildlife through my art.

“My sculptures provide protection for small creatures, with nooks and crannies for insects and holes for birds. The Art Trail is a rare opportunity to show my work in the environment from which, and for which, it was created."

Most of Wendy’s sculptures will be on display near the house, but for the more outward bound visitor, there are sign-posted paths leading to installations further afield.

Cassie Gray’s wood carving and other sculptures will be on view in Wendy’s studio along with two dimensional work by them both.

From August 1 a variety of free art exhibitions takes place throughout Ceredigion. From August 16,49 artists will open their studios to the public. To find out more or to download a Trail Guide visit http://ceredigionarttrail.org.uk.
