More than a hundred people gathered at Stocks Hotel on Friday 6th July for the launch of ‘Art for the Love of Sark’, a stunning book compiled by twenty of the world’s foremost wildlife artists. The pieces were created when the artists visited Sark last spring and autumn and include images of sculptures in wood and metal as well as drawings, paintings and prints in a variety of media. The book includes more than two hundred images showcasing Sark’s wildlife, landscape and some of the people who live and work here. The book has forewords by Seigneur Michael Beaumont and David Bellamy, both of whom were at the book launch. David Bellamy gave a passionate speech about the importance of preserving Sark’s natural heritage. Also on display was a selection of the original artwork that will be shown at a major exhibition in Guernsey opening in September and running until the end of the year.
