The Art of Opportunity: DSWF Affordable Art Fair
David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation, Shalford, to Wednesday 20 December

Anyone who saw the heartbreaking recent image of the last male northern white rhino, Sudan, as he lay in the dust of his home in a Kenyan wildlife conservancy will want to support the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) as it holds an Art Fair, both online and at its newly refurbished gallery at Saba House, Shalford. Supporters have the chance to purchase a selection of stunning prints at reduced prices from the charity’s online catalogue, along with a selection of art donated from private collections. In addition, there will be items from painters such as William Russell Flint and Terence Cuneo. Proceeds from the sale will go to the Foundation, enabling it to continue to fund the fight against wildlife crime in Africa and Asia and protect some of the world’s most endangered animals, such as the Black Rhino pictured above.
