Colourful artworks are up for grabs to fundraise for wildlife

- By WENDY STEPHENS

GAVIN Doherty and artist Tina Fraser from the ‘Out of Town Nursery’ at Beechworth are hoping to raise funds by auctioning two of Tina's digital photograph­ic artworks.

“The works are printed on canvas and ready to hang -' Teddy' 40cmx50cm and 'Sturt’s Desert Pea' 75cmx100cm," Mr Doherty said.

“We are raising funds as a response to the tragic effect of bushfires on wildlife.

“This is an unimaginab­le tragedy for people, wildlife and country.

“After much discussion with friends we have decided to donate to Wildlife Victoria or Kangaloola Wildlife Shelter Inc. at Yackandand­ah, depending on donor or buyer preference.

“We have already donated money to several different fire response organisati­ons and urge everyone else to do the same.”

You can place your bids for either or both canvases by January 25 - phone 03 5726 1554, email outoftown6@bigpond.com or message Tina Fraser, Gavin Doherty or Out of Town Nursery on Facebook.

The ‘Out of Town Nursery’ is a cool sanctuary for all sorts of wildlife, wallabies, koalas and birds where they enjoy water and feed in the beautiful surroundin­g garden.
