A BENEFIT art auction is to be held tomorrow (22nd) for the Aberystwyth Arts Centre Campaign Group legal defence fund. Lots are being donated by artists such as Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy and Gillian Clarke.

Proceeds from the event are thought to be going towards the legal costs for Auriel Martin, who was suspended from Aberystwyth University in February 2013.

The auction will take place in the Morlan Centre, Aberystwyth, with viewing opening at 18:00, and the auction itself starting at 19:30.

A diverse amount of items are on offer, ranging from pottery to paintings and bottles of  Spanish wine selected by Ms.Duffy.
