Over fifty artists, including some of Canada’s most celebrated and many who are First Nations, have used their talents to portray our fragile coast. The artists have donated all of these incredible original works to Raincoast Conservation Foundation in an effort to stop Enbridge’s Northern Gateway oil tanker proposal. All the art on display will be sold in an online auction with 100% of the proceeds going to the Oil-Free Coast campaign.
You can view the online auction and place your bids here. Nanaimo has never had an art show like this before! Don’t miss your opportunity to catch it while it is in town.
A lovely art book, Canada’s Raincoast at Risk, containing all of the works on display will be available for sale at the gallery while the show is up. The eBook version of the art book can be download for free to your iPad from the Apple iTunes store here.
