Renowned wildlife artist Terry Lambert donated artwork to R.A.B.I, which sold for £950 at a charity lunch auction.
Terry’s work is highly sought all over the world and he is best known for his paintings of birds. He started out three decades ago as an illustrator for Collins bird books but has subsequently undertaken many high profile commissions. His work features in many collections, including those held by the McCartneys and the Astor family, and he once had six paintings gifted to the Sultan of Oman – after undertaking a research project in Oman for the Shell Oil Company.
Terry donated a fantastic print of a wren and an item of original artwork to R.A.B.I for sale at auction at their Sunday lunch fundraiser at the Maesmawr Hotel in Caersws. As well as giving a talk about his career, Terry also unveiled his first ever sculpture collection, depicting owls, pheasants and herons. The collection was recently launched at an exhibition in London and will reside permanently at Bettws Hall in Newtown.
Auctioneer Jonny Evans from Norman Lloyd Ltd took charge of the auction, with the bidding rising to £950.
Becky Davies, R.A.B.I regional manager for North Wales, said: “Our Montgomeryshire committee was privileged to hold this event in conjunction with such an acclaimed artist. On the day, more than £2,000 was raised to support farming families in hardship and we’re extremely grateful to Terry for his time and generosity.”
Terry added: “I’m honoured to be able to support the good work of R.A.B.I and pleased to have been able to contribute to their fundraising efforts in Montgomeryshire.”
