Isabella Peatfield Art Auction

An art auction was held at Mappleton Manor on Sunday, to raise money to support children in Sri Lanka through the Isabella Peatfield Fund. Works by well known regional artists were displayed in some of the beautiful rooms of the Manor, and the garden. Louise Dunning from Derby Museums curated the event. The sun was shining, there were lots of visitors and after looking at the art it was great sitting in the garden having tea and cakes. People could make silent bids on works they wanted to buy. My painting Dovedale Stepping Stones in Autumn was sold; I was pleased to have been part of this event.
