Welsh artist creates painting to raise funds for Sioe’r Cardis 2024

The last time Ceredigion was the feature county of the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society in 2010, the famous artist Aneurin Jones created a piece of art for the event. Prints of the painting were sold to raise funds for the feature county and were deemed a huge success.

Following in his father’s footsteps, son Meirion Jones has created a painting for Sioe’r Cardis 2024. Meirion Jones is a highly recognised artist, born in West Wales. Much of Meirion’s work is inspired by Wales, both rural scenes and the beautiful West Wales coastline. The painting that Meirion has created for Sioe’r Cardis 2024 depicts a scene from the popular Barley Saturday Show and Parade.

The original painting and prints will be sold to raise funds for Sioe’r Cardis 2024 and Wales Air Ambulance at a live auction at the Speed Shears Evening in Trefaes Fawr Farm, Beulah, Cardigan on Friday 18th of August 2023 starting at 6pm.

This will be a fun-packed charity evening, attracting crowds throughout Wales. The Speed Shears prize money is an impressive £1,500 with Juniors, Intermediate, Senior, Open, Veteran, Teams and even surprise celebrity heats. It promises to be a night to remember!
