ArtyFarty’s Art for Meadows Project
ArtyFarty is a group of friends in Charnwood with a passion for art. Our focus is on sharing ideas, interests, skills and enthusiasms. We take our art more seriously than ourselves – hence the name ArtyFarty. During the past 5 years, we have involved ourselves in a variety of projects.
A majority of us are members of the Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust. Each of us stimulated and motivated by its land, flora and fauna, and its environmental ethos. With this in mind, we have created artworks inspired by local meadows to support the Trust in helping to raise funds to extend its land.

How this auction works
The blue tab for each item indicates the current bid. Click on the item and submit your maximum bid. Your bid will increment by £5 or £10 as other bids are placed until your maximum bid is reached. If you have placed the winning bid you will be contacted at the end of the auction by the organisers to arrange payment.
Please bid generously. The starting bid does not reflect the true value of these beautiful artworks.
All delivery options will be at the discretion of the artist in discussion with the successful bidder for each piece. Extra cost for postage and packing may be incurred. We are sorry but artworks cannot be sent outside the UK.Close.
1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
