Art and environmental action have come together in a travelling exhibition called Art for an Oil-Free Coast that stops at Salt Spring from Dec. 11 to 16.

The exhibit includes works by 50 artists who travelled to the remote Great Bear Rainforest to depict the rich biodiversity and ecological elements of the forest, intertidal and ocean zones.

Salt Spring residents Allan Hancock, Carol Evans and Robert Bateman were among the entourage who created artwork for an auction and accompanying book to support the Raincoast Conservation Foundation. The foundation has taken on the art-related campaign to stop the Enbridge Northern Gateway project and increased tanker traffic on the coast.
